Because recent studies show that most women are not eating balanced diets, the Intermountain Women's Center and the Department of Food Services at LDS Hospital are sponsoring a seminar in September on how to eat better.

At the seminar, each participant's diet will be analyzed by a registered dietitian. The analysis will include a computer printout of the woman's daily and three-day nutrient intake averages. Those statistics will be compared to the recommended dietary allowances for their age and sex as determined by the Committee on Dietary Allowances of the Food and Nutrition Board of the National Search Committee.Dietary excesses and deficiencies will be highlighted along with suggestions for dealing with dietary problems.

The seminar will also cover current concerns women have about artificial sweeteners, iron deficiency, calcium supplements, heart disease and obesity.

The two-session seminar will be held at 7 p.m. Sept. 13 and 27 at the hospital. Cost is $25. For more information, call 321-5050.
