Faculty Friday: Gary Hsieh

It's a quiet afternoon in summer quarter, and Gary Hsieh is wearing shorts and a T-shirt. He rode his bike to work this morning — for the first time — and now he's sitting across from a 3-foot-tall package from Amazon. "This is an under-desk elliptical," he says, slapping the top of the bulky box. He’ll pedal it beneath his feet as he types, burning calories with each keystroke. Hsieh, an assistant professor in Human Centered Design & Engineering (HCDE), is trying to solve a problem. "I’ve gained too much weight,” he says.

Congratulations on making huge strides to a healthier you during the Summer Throwdown! As someone who is working hard to lose baby weight and get back into shape, I know how tough it can be to stay consistent with healthy eating and exercise habits.

Here are my best tips for healthy skin while you work out this summer and beyond!

Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth: Natural Sugars

It's probably better to skip dessert, you tell yourself as the waiter brings the check, but let's just take a peek at the menu. Soon you're three spoonfuls into a bowl of vanilla ice cream, and there's a triple-fudge brownie waiting patiently for your attention. You smile in delight with each bite, then twinge with regret for your poor belly. Months from now you'll curse yourself as you sink into a dentist's chair and grasp an armrest with trembling fingers.
