Meet the Authors of the Full Plate Diet
Stuart A. Seale, M.D., board-certified family physician and coauthor of The 30-Day Diabetes Miracle (Penguin, New York 2008) has helped thousands of patients over the past quarter century. While managing a solo family practice in Springfield, Missouri, for 21 years, he treated an increasing number of patients who suffered from lifestyle-related diseases, including obesity. This experience encouraged him to learn more about treating the cause of these conditions, not just how to control the symptoms.

He now serves as the medical director for Ardmore Institute of Health and is the medical director, physician and educator for Lifestyle Center of America’s diabetes and weight management programs in Sedona, Arizona.

Dr. Seale graduated from Loma Linda University School of Medicine in 1979 and completed a family practice residency at the University of Missouri in 1983. He has received the three-year AMA Physician Recognition Award eight times, most recently in 2007.

Teresa Sherard, M.D., earned her medical degree from Loma Linda University School of Medicine in 1999. She completed her internship and residency at Loma Linda University Hospital in 2002. Two years later, she completed a fellowship in lifestyle medicine at the Lifestyle Center of America.

As a staff physician at the Lifestyle Center of America, Dr. Sherard educates patients to recapture their health and to successfully achieve weight loss. This is accomplished when nutrition, exercise and behavior treatment are used together. Her warm personality enables Dr. Sherard to build great friendships with her patients.

Dr. Sherard’s interest in lifestyle medicine began as she worked as a volunteer at the Wildwood Lifestyle Center and Hospital located in Wildwood, Georgia, near her hometown of Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Diana Fleming, Ph.D., was cofounder and co manager of Country Life Vegetarian Restaurants in New York City and London and a cooking consultant for Harvard University and Wellesley College. She earned her Ph.D. in nutrition at Tufts University in Boston. All four of her thesis papers were published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Diana coauthored The 30-Day Diabetes Miracle Cookbook (Penguin, New York 2008), where her knowledge and expertise were valuable in developing tasty high-fiber, plant-based recipes that help readers achieve significant diabetes relief and weight loss.

She joined the staff at the Lifestyle Center of America in 2002, serving as director of nutritional services since 2003. Too often nutrition professionals don’t know how to take the theory of nutrition from research to the plate. Not so with Diana. She has a passion for nutrition which translates into her personal love for cooking, baking and eating.
