Nutritional experts say that diets promising quick and easy weight loss are not the long-term solution for losing weight. These trendy diets not only fail but can also be dangerous. 

Learn more at this free seminar, Fad-Free Fabulous Diet, facilitated by Alesha Orton, registered dietitian at Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital. 

Orton, a 14-year registered dietitian, has counseled SPCH patients on nutritional issues for the past four years.

“There is so much emphasis on weight loss in our culture, it’s understandable that people grasp at options for quick weight loss, but those diets do not make sound nutritional sense, and can actually do harm to your body,” Orton said. 

In this seminar, Orton will discuss what makes a fad diet, and why they should be avoided.

“We will also explore the ways we should eat whether we want to lose weight or not,” she added.

This seminar takes place at the Center for Health Education in Newport on Wednesday, July 10, starting at 5:30. Registration is not required. If you want additional information, call 541-574-4952.
