This weight management program is designed for those who have a BMI classification of obesity (BMI of 30 or greater). Calculate your BMI at the bottom of the page to determine your classification.

Three phases of the program

Phase 1: Reducing
During the Reducing Phase, your complete nutrition needs will be supplied through beverages that will assist you with safe and significant weight loss. These beverages are provided in a wide variety of flavors. Our weekly educational classes will help you learn about eating behaviors, proper nutrition and exercise techniques that will assist you in your weight loss journey.

Phase 2: Transitions
The Transitions Phase occurs when you are about 10 pounds away from your goal weight. During this time, you will meet regularly with a registered dietitian to slowly introduce food back into your diet. You will also meet with a licensed behaviorist to discuss your eating behaviors, such as food addiction and compulsive eating.
