Healthy You Program and Healthy You + Program

Healthy You Program:

Healthy You is a program that encourages weight loss through modest lifestyle changes.  It has been proven to reduce both weight and risk of developing chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes.

Participants in the Healthy You program will attend weekly meetings where they engage in discussions about successes, challenges and topics that pertain to weight loss and activity. These meetings will provide you with support and accountability as you are building new habits.

Additionally, your food logs, activity minutes and weight checks will be reviewed regularly by a trained lifestyle coach. One month into the program, as you start building habits, we will offer a medical initial visit to review medical history and any medical barriers to weight loss.

Recommendations may include:

  • Lab work
  • Follow up visits with our medical providers to monitor progress
  • Medications for weight loss if appropriate
  • Consultations with specialists if appropriate (such as cardiologist, pulmonologist)

Program participation is offered both in person and virtually for your convenience.

Who can benefit from the Healthy You program?

  • Anyone 18 years and older who has a BMI of 25 or greater that desires to lose weight through lifestyle changes may qualify.
