Interactive Program Teaches Participants About Foods to Kickstart Weight Loss and Health.

 

Dominica Public Service Union Building, Conference Room (Downstairs), Roseau, Dominica: The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), a national nonprofit organization that promotes preventive medicine, particularly good nutrition, and supports higher standards in research, is offering a cooking course designed to help local residents lose weight and improve their health through proper diet and nutrition.

 

“Losing weight has never been easier,” says Susan Levin, M.S., R.D., the director of nutrition education for PCRM. “Participants can expect to lose a pound a week without counting calories. Many experience significant health benefits, including lowered cholesterol and blood pressure, elimination of chronic pain, and increased energy.”

 

The Rx for weight loss and health? It’s a low-fat vegetarian diet. Load up on fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, Levin says; they’re naturally low in fat, chock-full of fiber, and filled with immune-boosting antioxidants and phytochemicals. These foods will naturally tame your appetite and boost metabolism.

 

The challenge, Levin acknowledges, is not only to teach people which foods are good for them, but also to show them how to make the foods taste good. Each class centers on important nutrition topics as local cooking instructor Dr. Alisha Honore Felix guides students through the preparation of tasty and easy-to-prepare recipes.
