A select group of Heart-to-Heart participants will enroll in a follow-up text program, which will provide tips and reminders to help them lead a healthy lifestyle. These innovative texts are created by students at Hunter School of Nursing. Below are some examples:

Slow and steady wins the race! By losing 1-2 pounds a week, you will be more likely to keep the weight off versus drastic weight loss in a short amount of time.

Feel guilty after indulging this weekend? No need to starve all week. Stay fit and healthy by adding, not subtracting: add water, fruits, and vegetables to each meal; add movement to your daily activity.

Stop and think! Are you really hungry or just bored? A food journal can help you figure out if you are adding extra calories with emotional eating.
