OK, I am exaggerating...she looked 16.
At work, they sponsor an annual wellness assessment and have done so for the past few years. The only reason I do it, is because I save a few hundred dollars on annual health premiums. The people doing the assessments are fresh out of college. They want to be wellness coaches, trainers, etc. But they are just kids.
Every year, some child tells me my cholesterol is "borderline" and that my BMI is (usually) too high. Some child who can still eat all the garbage they want, and not gain weight (which will probably change when they turn 29). Well, everytime I have followed up with a "real" cholesterol screening through my "real" healthcare provider, it is fine.
So my conversation with the 16 year old went something like this.
16 year old: To raise your HDL, add olive oil, exercise, eat fiber
LittleBo: I eat 50 grams of fiber a day
16 year old: Ok, that is good
LittleBo thinks (she has noooo idea that is too much) And I'm in menopause
16 year old: Ok
LittleBo thinks (she doesn't know what that is and that is messes with cholesterol)
16 year old: would you like a referal to a health coach?
LittleBo: No, thank you. (I'm afraid they would be 18)
Sigh! Just my pet peeve for today.
