Free faith-based weight loss program meets Wednesdays

Most people start thinking about living a healthy lifestyle after the year-end holidays. This year there is a program designed for participants to get support for healthful eating before the deluge starts – and stay the course through the feast-filled days of December.

Free classes meet at 2:30 p.m. Wednesdays for anyone who wants to reach their right weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle through the holidays.

Prism Weight Loss Program helps people change their attitudes toward food, based on sensible nutrition, moderate meal portions and spiritual sustenance. The program is organized in four phases of six sessions each, and the phases are optional. Materials cost $20 for each phase. New and returning participants are welcome.

Participants will learn to enjoy food in its most natural and unprocessed form, including complex carbohydrates in moderation, and to drink plenty of water. It sounds easy – but those who know it’s hard will find hope and encouragement through daily Bible readings, weekly meetings, accountability partners, journaling about their food choices, and prayer.

Participants also will gain insight into the causes of their eating behaviors and learn self-control. No weigh-ins.

Prism classes meet at Peace Lutheran Church, 828 W. Main St., near downtown Grass Valley. For details, visit or contact organizer Carol Lenhard at 530-755-5550.
