Prism

I was asked about Prism so I will try to explain the program. Prism is a program that is founded on Christian principles, honesty and discipline. It deals with all of you, not just your weight. It looks at your emotions, your food addictions, the way you were brought up to think about food...was it a reward, or offered for comfort? You learn about good fats, not just bad fats. There is a wealth of knowledge available in the program.
You are not counting carbs or fats. You do keep track of your calories.

PHASE ONE

Fruits and veggies:
You can eat all veggies and fruits except potatoes
Grains & Cereals:
You can have 1 cup sugar free oatmeal, whole grain
1 serving sugar free cold cereal per day
No more than one cup of rice (preferably brown) per day
No more than 2 large (3") unflavored brown rice cakes per day
Should have atleast 2, but no more than 3, from this list.
Milk/Dairy:
You can have milk, buttermilk, sugar free yogurt, sour cream, cottage cheese, or cream cheese.
Preferably low fat or non fat.
Protein:
all lean meats, fish, poultry, plus all beans legumes, lentils, eggs, and all natural, no sugar added peanut butter.

You can really have a lot of different foods, just have to count the calories. I have to say, I was NEVER hungry, and there were many days when I was scrambling to get enough calories. It is very important to get enough calories or your body will use the lean muscle (not good)! The average calories is from 1000-1200 per day for women, unless you are 250 pounds or more then you need to up the calories range to 1300-1500. Also if you exercise every day you need to up the calories to the same range.

There is daily reading and usually some probing questions to answer to help you to understand yourself better as well as daily scriptures to read if you want. You do not have to be a Christian to join Prism. The scriptures are an option. The whole idea is to become what you were created to be! For me, that is my goal!

If you want to join Prism, and to find one near you, go to their website www.pwlp.com
