Lifestyle Change Program

Feel empowered

Are you ready to awaken your inner potential and live life to the fullest?

Unlike fad diets that result in a frustrating cycle of weight loss and regain, the Lifestyle Change Program incorporates evidence-based practices from those who have succeeded with long-term weight loss. Our four month program will guide you step by step, helping you shed pounds while reversing chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure.

Program overview

With personalized medical oversight from a multidisciplinary team, combined with group classes, the Lifestyle Change Program is unique among weight loss programs. Clients are supported by a team of clinicians including a physician, a dietitian, and a behavioral therapist, each with distinct skills and training to maximize every participant's success.

The Lifestyle Change Program strives to help participants make sustainable lifestyle changes by approaching wellness in a whole-person manner, as opposed to a quick-fix diet. By combining instruction on nutrition, physical activity, stress management, mindfulness, and the confidence to make healthy lifestyle changes, our participants are set up for long-term success.

Interested participants must attend a free informational session to get started.
