Loma Linda, Calif. (PRWEB) January 22, 2013
New sessions for “The Full Plate Diet,” an innovative way to lose weight without calorie counting, medications, of purchasing pre-made foods, will start Feb. 13 at Loma Linda University.
Two sessions of the eight-week program will be held each Wednesday, starting Feb. 13, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., at Loma Linda University Drayson Center, 25040 Stewart St., Loma Linda, Calif., 92354. The cost for the program is $80.
The concept of “The Full Plate Diet” is taken from the best-selling book of the same title, which has sparked a nationwide weight-loss movement. Most people need to eat more natural fiber rich foods, which tend to make people eat fewer calories than they burn, resulting in weight loss, according to program developers.
Program participants will learn about fiber-rich foods, which are full of water and nutrients, that help fight and prevent diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke and obesity. The sessions will be led by interns from the doctoral program in Preventive Care at Loma Linda University School of Public Health.
