“Healthy Weighs” is a six-week class that helps attendees learn how to manage portion size and make healthier food choices. In addition, the program discusses how to stay active to promote weight loss and reduce serious health risks related to obesity, including:
- high blood pressure
- metabolic syndrome
- heart disease
- high triglycerides/cholesterol
- gynecological disorders (such as infertility/erectile dysfunction)
- non-alcoholic liver disease,
- skin conditions (poor wound healing)
The purpose of these classes is to promote a healthy life and learn lifestyle changes that will last. Participants will be asked to commit to attend the entire six-week series, as well as a follow-up class one month later.
Each class session lasts approximately 90 minutes. Participants will be given a Weight and Activity Log to record their weekly weigh-in weight (done privately), log food, exercise/activity and minutes of activity.
