Weight Loss

On the Road to Health & Wellness

Our program, the Weight Loss Coach, focuses on losing weight through mindful living.

Our 12-week weight loss program is designed to:

  • assist clients to shed pounds
  • control portions
  • reduce cravings
  • integrate healthy habits

Within a 12-week period the client learns to set realistic goals to lose 5% to 7% of his/her body weight.

The Weight Loss Coach encourages clients to be mindful of caloric intake and as well as eating nutritiously.

The client learns to stay focused on his/her weight loss goal, while gradually changing behaviors.

Weekly sessions support the client’s efforts to achieve his/her goals.

The Weight Loss Coach works with the client to let go of past emotions connected to weight or yo-yo dieting.

Program Justification / Rationale:

According to a landmark report published in the New England Journal of Medicine, 57% of subjects were able to lose weight and keep their weight off for more than a year when they worked with a health and wellness coach, than those who were on their own. A weight loss of even ten poungs can make a huge difference in one's health.

Losing 10 pounds can make a huge difference in your health.

The Weight Loss Coach also incorporates the following::

  • limit fat and calorie consumption
  • track food intake
  • learn portion control
  • food shopping and label reading
  • address yo-yo dieting, why fad diets don't work
  • uncovering unconscious and emotional eating
  • recognize triggers to overeat
  • get at least 150 minutes of exercise each week, preferably 20 minutes per day
  • devise strategies to avoid gaining back lost weight
