Do you need to eat more to lose weight?

Space is still available in the Full Plate Diet Weight Loss Program, which started 6:30 p.m. Monday in Grass Valley and continues at the same time each week for seven more Monday nights.

Mark Brown, program facilitator, said people can easily start the program next Monday, Jan. 18, and still catch up quickly.

The classes meet for one hour weekly at Grass Valley Seventh-day Adventist Church, 12889 Osborne Hill Road. The cost is $50 per couple or individual.

Developed by the doctors who wrote The New York Times bestseller, The Full Plate Diet, the program is designed to help you discover how to enjoy a full plate of food and still lose weight.

The key is eating more foods that are naturally rich in fiber because they are low in calories and keep you feeling full for hours.

Coauthor Dr. Diana Fleming says that most people need to eat at least three times more natural, fiber-rich foods than they currently eat.

These are foods such as black beans, apples, oatmeal, carrots, and almonds.

There are literally thousands of natural, fiber-rich foods around the world and many can be found at your local grocery store. Research shows that eating more of these foods can help you lose weight and help prevent heart disease, diabetes and stroke.

Brown says the goal of the program is to introduce easy, simple steps that participants can start taking at their very next meal, whether at home or in a restaurant.

“Many people are amazed at how easy it is to get started and make it a part of their everyday life. This is not a fad diet,” Brown said.

According to Dr. Fleming, “the problem for most people isn’t figuring out how to lose weight quickly, it’s how to keep it off long-term.”

Research shows, eight out of 10 people who lose weight will gain it all back within a year.

This program reveals the tools that can help you keep the weight off for good.

The program will:

Give you a simple eating plan you can enjoy as part of your everyday life

Free you to eat more food while cutting the calories in half

Show you how to rev up your weight loss and lose weight twice as fast

Empower you to escape the yo-yo dieting trap

Help you discover the 10 weight loss tools successful losers use

According to Brown, this program is for anyone who is actively trying to lose weight or even just thinking about it.

“The way the program is designed creates a fun and friendly atmosphere,” he said. “There are 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 ideas you can try at your very next meal.”
