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.
