Doylestown Health’s new weight management program, The Simple Weigh, features an easy-to-follow, color-coded program focused on whole foods, personalized goal setting, education and group support.

The first 10-week session kicks off at 6:30 pm, Tuesday, March 2, with a hybrid format so participants may attend virtually via Zoom or in-person at the Health and Wellness Center in Warrington.

Focus on Whole Foods

“The Simple Weigh encourages whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins, while limiting fat and highly processed foods,” explains Debbie Davis, a registered, licensed dietitian-nutritionist from Doylestown Health. “Vegetarian and low-carb meal plan options are also available.”

Why Whole Foods are Best for Weight Loss

“Eating a diet rich in whole foods can help with weight loss simply because we have less room for higher-calorie, less nutritious processed foods,” explains Debbie. “Whole foods are rich in nutrients, antioxidants and fiber, making them much healthier than highly processed foods, which can increase the risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes and high blood pressure.”

Personalized Goal Setting with a Dietitian

The program begins with a one-on-one appointment with a Doylestown Health registered dietitian who will:

  • Discuss where you are on your weight loss journey
  • Help you set weight management goals
  • Design a framework for your personalized nutrition plan, based on your goals

Weekly Group Learning and Support

"Weekly healthy lifestyle and nutrition talks are presented by Doylestown Health experts, with opportunities for members to share their challenges and successes and to support one another,” says Debbie. Topics include:

  • Nutrition, fitness and mindfulness
  • Sample meal plans and weekly recipes
  • New, healthy food products

Sustainable Weight Loss

The Simple Weigh is designed to support weight loss of up to 1-2 pounds per week, because moderate weight loss:

  • Is easier to maintain over the long-term
  • Helps you develop healthy eating behaviors
  • Has fewer health risks, as losing weight too fast can lead to muscle loss, nutrition deficiencies and other problems
