This weight management program focuses on weight loss goals supported by healthier nutrition practices and increased physical activity.
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.
Each series consists of 4 classes that cover portion control, nutrition, grocery shopping, and emotional eating. Participants will receive 2 months membership in the Minges Wellness Center with an individual exercise plan developed with an exercise specialist.
This program is ideal for individuals needing to lose 10-40 pounds and are at a stage of readiness where lifestyle changes can be made.
