Healthy Nutrition

Weight Management Program

  • Group weight management program that focuses on lifestyle changes to help you reach and maintain a healthier body weight.  You will learn about how nutrition, physical activity, self-esteem, the environment and your behaviors affect your weight.  You will learn how to use this information in your day-to-day life.
  • The goal of this program is to help you make permanent lifestyle changes.  This is not a program that focuses on “dieting”.
  • You can expect a lifestyle/healthy eating/non-diet approach to help you reach a healthier weight that is natural for you; and to work with other members of the group doing practical activities and learning from each other’s’ experiences.
  • The program involves three phases:  Orientation, Lifestyle Modification, and Follow Up.  The Orientation Session includes an overview of the program and opportunities for participants to assess if they are ready to start this type of program and ask questions.  The Lifestyle Modification consists of 5 weekly group sessions.  Each session lasts 60-90 minutes.  After the program is completed, participants can attend follow up sessions with the family practice dietitian.
