Healthy Weight Program

The Healthy Weight for a Lifetime program focuses on creating a long-term solution for weight loss. The program addresses the emotional, as well as physical and nutritional issues contributing to obesity. This 12-week program is set apart by a multidisciplinary approach including nutrition counseling, behavioral health, and exercise coaching.

For those struggling with weight loss, diets by themselves do not result in long lasting change. The physician-supervised program will help participants create a foundation to ensure sustained success and maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle.
