WLUC - Features - Get Healthy


In an effort to provide information to our viewers about living a healthy lifestyle, all year long, TV6 and FOX UP will be promoting the “Get Healthy” campaign. The campaign will consist of news stories and series under the umbrella of “Get Healthy.” The concept of “Get Healthy” is a big topic, and can mean everything from prenatal care education to selecting a nursing home. Diet, exercise, mental health…the list goes on and on.

Your TV6 Morning News will feature guests and live appearances with the “Get Healthy” theme. You will also see Get Healthy Tips, which will run on FOX UP, TV6 and be posted to UpperMichigan’sSource.com.

Watch for Get Healthy in 2017!

If you have a health-related topic you'd like TV6 and FOX UP to cover this year, send us an email at wlucnews@wluctv6.com with "Get Healthy" in the subject line.

Get Healthy Tips

1. Move your body every day of the week. Any movement, not just exercise, will work. The key to getting healthy is that you are moving every day.

2. Thoughts are powerful. Encourage yourself at all times with positive thought processes. Whenever you find yourself thinking negatively, turn that off and start thinking positively!

3. Give up soda and juices with lots of sugar. Drinks with sugar or high fructose corn syrup have too many empty calories. No use in drinking all your calories. Save calories and drink water, various teas or coffee (no sugar!) Food should be your primary source of calories in a get healthy diet.

4. Keep a food journal on paper, online or with an app. Studies show that people who keep food journals are more successful at getting healthy than those who don’t. Just writing down your caloric intake is helpful.

5. Eat colorful fresh vegetables and fruits. Red, green, yellow…a rainbow of colors in healthy fruits and veggies are available to you, and are the most important part of any get healthy diet. The calories you consume this way are valuable in their nutrition, and will replace those that are not.
