Fad diets topic of OHCE lesson
Susan Routh, Grady County extension educator for family and consumer science, will present an Oklahoma Home and Community Education (OHCE) leader lesson from 2-4 p.m. Tuesday at the Center for Creative Living, 3501 SW Dr. Elsie Hamm Drive (F Avenue).
Her topic will be "Understanding and Avoiding Fad Diets." Every week there's a new "miracle" diet and every year individuals can't help but wonder, "Is this the weight loss diet that will finally work, once and for all?"
There are weight loss programs that work, but there are many more "fads" out there that will temporarily drop weight, only to have the pounds return in a few weeks. The lesson will give tips on how to spot a fad diet and will explore what is currently recommended for weight control.
