Sensible Eating Program
Build a healthy diet in a stepwise progression as you learn about healthy food choices within each food group (grains, meats and beans, oils, vegetables, fruits, and dairy products). After your initial assessment visit, you will receive six visits, each one focusing on a new food group. You will have time between visits to incorporate healthy changes within your diet. Recipes, menus, and meal planning ideas for each group will be discussed. Additional Visits Available As Needed
Lifestyle Change Program
Using the toolkit developed by Robert F. Kushner, MD, Nancy Kushner, MSN, RN, and Dawn Jackson Blatner, RD entitled Counseling Overweight Adults: The Lifestyle Patterns Approach and Toolkit, clients are able to rank behaviors in three major areas: eating patterns, exercise patterns, and coping patterns. Based upon the results of an interactive quiz, clients are given goals to help change their individual habits and behaviors which have led to their excessive weight gain and/or unhealthy eating and activity patterns. The goals and progress in meeting goals are tracked over time.
