The Go Slow Approach Works Wonders for Lenora

a couple shopping

She was ready to jump in and lose weight as fast as possible. It didn’t happen. After the first few sessions Lenora was discouraged. This was obviously not the quick fix she was looking for.

Lenora talked to the facilitator of The Full Plate Diet Weight Loss Program. Carolyn explained to her this was a “go-slow approach” designed to help people achieve permanent weight loss. “It made sense,” Lenora thought. Once she accepted this, Lenora found “the slow process is very easy to do.”

10 months later Lenora went from 200 to 150 pounds!

How did she do it?
·      “I beefed up my water intake.”
·      “I eat a lot more fruits, veggies, and beans!”
·      “I limit my breads and pastas and stay away from other processed foods, including fast food.”
·      “When grocery shopping I spend most of my time in the produce aisle.”

Sound difficult? Here’s what Lenora says:

“It’s not hard. I just have to think: Is what I’m about to eat going to help me?”
