Local women's health center recognizes September awareness campaign with its new weight loss program

More than half of adult U.S. women are overweight and more than one-third of adult U.S. women are obese, according to the American Obesity Association.

In fact, obesity plays a major role in the poor health of women, including diabetes and high blood pressure.

Such statistics can be alarming, and the increase in obesity is why places, like the local Curves center, have educational programs to address weight loss through focused curricula and classes.

In recognition of National Women's Health and Fitness Day on Sept. 30, several Curves locations in Pinellas County are offering a no cost, 30-Day Diet Plan program for women interested in weight-loss results and health improvement.

The 30-Day Diet Plan program is a series of free weight management classes. These classes are based on recent research findings from the Exercise & Sport Nutrition Laboratory at Texas A&M University. They teach Curves' demonstrated method for raising metabolism and losing weight.

Classes for the 30-Day Diet Plan program include:

1. Start-Up Class (90 minutes) and progression to Phase 2 for first-time participants.

2. Phase 3 Class (30 minutes) to teach the most important stage of the Curves Weight Management Plan and special techniques for ongoing weight maintenance.

3. Special Topics Classes (30 minutes) to cover a different health-related topic each month, including Smart Grocery Shopping, Choosing the Right Carbohydrates, Eating Out, Emotional Eating and more.

All classes are available at no fee and no membership is required. The classes are administered by hands-on activities facilitated by weight management coaches from Curves and DVDs that provide lessons by Curves' registered dietitian.

Participants are encouraged to make a weekly appointment to weigh in with their weight management coaches, who provide ongoing support and accountability.
