What Are Weight Management Programs?

Weight management programs provide individualized strategies, education and treatment as you embark upon your weight loss journey. Specialists design plans tailored to you, help you carry them out and provide the resources needed for successful weight control.

Weight management programs include guidance on creating a healthy, lower-calorie diet, physical activity plans, and support for positive habit changes. They may also include dietary food replacements, nutritional supplements and medication.

Benefits of a Weight Management Program

Weight management programs make navigating the difficulty of changing your lifestyle easier. Rather than going it alone with an app or fad diet, a medically supervised comprehensive weight management program makes it much more likely that you will lose weight and learn to keep it off safely.
