Spiritual weight program starts Wednesday

Reach emotional wholeness and keep your right weight through a nutritional lifestyle support group starting Wednesday.

Prism Weight Loss Program helps people change the way they eat based on sensible nutrition, moderate portions and reliance on God. A free class will take place at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday at Peace Lutheran Church, 828 W. Main St., near downtown Grass Valley. 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.

One of the core philosophies of the program is to enjoy food in its most natural and unprocessed form. That means drinking more water, eating complex carbohydrates in moderation and ditching refined foods. In addition, participants gain insight into the causes of their eating behaviors and learn self-control.

During their transformation, participants find hope and encouragement through weekly meetings, daily Bible readings, having accountability partners, keeping a journal of their food consumption and prayer, said organizer Carol Lenhard, of Grass Valley.

Participants learn food guidelines such as: water is the most important catalyst for losing weight and keeping it off. Whole, complex carbohydrates in moderation promote greater health. Refined sugar is not allowed, but complex, natural sweeteners may be used.
