Based on the book The Full Plate Diet, this eight-week program focuses on adding natural, fiber-rich foods to the meals you’re already eating.

For $49, plus shipping and handling, you can attend the class and receive the book, an audio cd, and a fiber guide. Sign up by calling (937) 558-3988.

LEARN Program
LEARN stands for Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude, Relationships, and Nutrition. This program is a 12-week weight management program taught by a registered dietitian. Free information sessions are held on the second Thursday of each month at noon and 7 p.m.  Please call the Diabetes and Nutrition center at 384-6959 to register.

Am I Hungry?
The Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating is an eight-week workshop to help people break the cycle of mindless and emotional overeating.

Michelle May, M.D. developed the program and wrote Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat: How to Break Your Eat-Repent-Repeat Cycle. The book gives an alternative to yo-yo dieting that does not require weighing and measuring food, counting points or eating pre-packaged meals. Instead, May empowers readers to eat fearlessly, using their natural cues of hunger and fullness to guide them.

Susan McCloud, a health and wellness nurse educator at Kettering Medical Center’s Center for Heart and Vascular Health, leads the course. For more information contact her at susan.mccloud@ or (937) 298-3399, extension 55865.
