Your New Weigh to Live

Losing weight is challenging, no matter the number on the scale. When you have a significant amount of weight to lose, the task can seem overwhelming.

Your New Weigh to Live is the first step to a healthier you. Using one-on-one, in-person or virtual consultations with a registered dietitian, educational classes, and regular weigh-ins, the program helps participants learn how to make healthier choices in every area of their lives.

Participants benefit from sharing their weight-loss journey with others and receiving support and encouragement from peers and professionals.

Who is eligible for the program?

Your New Weigh to Live is designed for:

  • Those who qualify for bariatric surgery but want to try an intensive weight-loss program first.
  • Those who do not qualify for bariatric surgery but have significant weight to lose.
  • Bariatric post-surgery patients who want to get back on track with their weight loss. Patients who have had bariatric surgery do not pay the program fee. Instead, they pay the regular post-op additional visit fee of $30 per visit. They have access to the recorded classes and all program resources.

What is included in the program?

  • An initial, in-person orientation with the dietitian. This includes: your metabolic calculations, initial meal plans, meal replacement samples, your individual program goals, and a referral to a medically supervised fitness program.
