Residents who are struggling to lose weight or seeking to maintain a healthy weight can attend free classes at Kaiser Permanente Georgia’s Panola Medical Center in Lithonia.

The next Weight Loss Support: Ask a Dietitian/Nutritionist class, which is open to the public, takes place 3 to 4 p.m. on March 20. Pre-registration is required for non-members – call 404-364-7117.

Being a healthy weight can lower the risk of health problems. Class participants will have free access to a registered dietitian/nutritionist on their weight loss journey. The dietitian will present a different topic each month and answer questions to help class members as they adopt a healthier diet and lifestyle.

Monthly topics will vary based on participant interest and may include fad diets, nutrition myths, nutrition for exercise, the composition of beverages, eating out, and healthy snacking.
