We may only be in the second month of the New Year, but many people are already struggling with their resolution to lose weight. Stewart Memorial Community Hospital in Lake City will soon be launching a program that asks those trying to lose weight if they are actually eating enough to shed pounds and keep them off. Developed by the doctors who wrote the New York Times best seller, “The Full Plate Diet,” the SMCH program, “Are You Eating Enough to Lose Weight?” is designed to help participants discover how to enjoy a full plate of food and lose weight. The key to the program is eating more foods naturally rich in fiber, because they are low in calories and create a full feeling for hours. Maurine Thieszen, a Registered Dietitian at SMCH, will lead the program with the goal of introducing simple steps that participants can implement at their very next meal, whether at home or at a restaurant. “This is not a fad diet,” Thieszen said. “Many people are amazed at how easy it is to get started and make it a part of their everyday life.” More information about the program will be provided at a free, 45-minute session taking place at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 28, at the Stewart Memorial Community Hospital. Access to more information and instructions on how to RSVP for the session can be found below.
