Weight Management Program
Overview of the Program
Patients are prescribed a low-calorie diet that includes meal replacements during the first three months. After achieving weight loss, patients will be maintained on a low-calorie diet using everyday foods tailored to their personal preferences. Patients are given guidance about nutrition, portion sizes, and how to track their food intake. These resources will help patients maintain their weight loss after completion of the program.
Patients are required to perform 40 minutes of light to moderate physical activity (can be divided into 10 minute intervals) during the first 3 months and are graduated to a greater intensity and duration during the weight maintenance phase. Exercise physiologists can help tailor a program. Please see the link below:
