Medical Weight Loss and Lifestyle Change

The medical weight loss track offers options for those needing medical supervision to lose weight and make a lifestyle change. A team of medical professionals will take the time to understand your needs and work with you until you are on the right track to success.

Program Includes:

Nutrition and Fitness Coaching

You’ll attend group sessions for twelve weeks with a dietitian or health & wellness specialist focusing on lifestyle change to support weight loss and long term management.

After completing the group sessions, you will have three monthly follow-up appointments with your dietitian and health & wellness specialist.

Medical Monitoring

You will have an initial assessment with a provider to understand your risk factors and family history. Follow-up visits will be scheduled at three and six months to monitor the reduction of risk factors and assess progress.

Customized Diet Plan

Your dietitian will help you to create a plan that works for you. This may include a partial meal replacement program.

Gym Membership

While you are a participant of the program, you will receive an individual adult membership at Choice Health & Fitness or the Altru Family YMCA.

Nutrition and Fitness Tracking

Keep track of your progress with DietMaster®, an online tracking tool monitored by your dietitian and health & wellness specialist. DietMaster® enrollment is included during program and followup.
