This weight management program focuses on weight loss goals supported by healthier nutrition practices and increased physical activity. It is ideal for the individual needing to lose 10-40 pounds, and at a stage of readiness where lifestyle changes can be made.
Nutrition education is delivered in a 4 week program led by a Registered Dietitian in the Minges Wellness Center at UNC Lenoir Health Care. The program is a modified form of the national program, HealthyLife® Weigh, and focuses on the necessary formula for permanent weight loss: balancing calorie intake from food and calorie output through physical activity. We will assist you in making permanent lifestyle changes to help you get to and stay at a healthy body weight. This is not a diet but a new way of incorporating positive eating and activity habits.
