The Full Plate Diet weight-loss program is coming to Great Bend starting Tuesday. This is a new created by the doctors who wrote “The Full Plate Diet” from the Lifestyle Center of America.
Co-author Dr. Diana Fleming said the program helps individuals identify foods they need to eat more of to lose weight. “I know it sounds strange, but most people are not eating enough to lose weight,” she said. “People are tickled to find out how they can lose weight and never feel hungry.”
The program will also unveil the tools that can help participants keep the weight off for good. “This is not a flash-in-the-pan diet,” Fleming said. “The problem for most people isn’t figuring out how to lose weight, it’s how to keep it off.”
According to Fleming, eight out 10 people who lose weight will gain it all back. “There are good reasons why most people gain all their weight back, but once you help someone understand those reasons and better yet how to avoid them in the first place, it can make all the difference in the world.”
The program will cover:
• How to enjoy a full plate and still lose weight
• The 55 foods in our grocery store that can help us lose weight
• How we can escape the yo-yo dieting trap
• The 10 weight loss tools successful losers use unconsciously
• How we can lose weight even if we feel like giving up
According to Terry Ruebush, local program facilitator, the Full Plate Diet Weight Loss Program is for anyone interested in losing weight or even just thinking about losing weight. “The way the program is designed creates a fun and friendly atmosphere. There’s no pills or supplements to buy and you won’t be required to weigh yourself during the program. Just come, relax and surprise yourself with many new great ideas you can start doing at your very next meal.”
The program will meet Tuesday evenings for eight weeks from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. starting Tuesday. It will be held at Everything Under the Son, located at, 407 McKinley St., Great Bend.
A fee of $45 per person ($60 per couple) will be charged to cover program workbooks and materials but the group classes are free. The program is limited to the first 15 people.
