Weight Management

Here at the Wellness Center we believe diet has as much to do with your health as it does with how you feel. Our Registered Dietitians can educate and counsel you to help manage change and overcome obstacles, providing healthy and practical solutions for your weight loss efforts.

Being overweight (20 percent over normal weight guidelines for your frame and height) can increase your risk for developing diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and other medical problems. Being obese (more than 30 percent above healthy body weight) doubles the risk for Cardiovascular Disease.

If you're overweight, it's important to develop a weight-reduction plan with a trained expert. Studies show that "diets" don't work; controlling what you eat is only part of the challenge. To take the weight off (and keep it off), you need to make permanent lifestyle changes.

By exercising daily and eating healthy foods, you can maintain long-term weight loss. The key to daily exercise for weight management is increasing the total time you spend being active during the day to at least 30 minutes and making this a permanent part of your life.

Attitude is the most important factor. To achieve long-term weight loss, you must be willing to make permanent behavioral changes.

Nutrition Education

Here at the Wellness Center a registered dietitian can help you develop a weight loss plan, including a sensible diet and exercise regimen to achieve a healthy weight. While these changes take time, the dietitian can develop a gradual plan for changing food-intake patterns.
