A Healthy Weigh

A Healthy Weigh

This program incorporates healthy, "real" food into a plan customized to each person's nutrition needs. Our highly qualified team includes a registered and licensed dietitian-nutritionist, licensed counselors and exercise physiologists (Cornerstone Clubs).

The curriculum of this program is based on the three pillars of health:

  • Food & Nutrition
  • Exercise & Movement
  • Mind & Behavior Awareness

An initial individual consultation with the dietitian will be scheduled before the program begins. In this meeting, the dietitian will determine individual nutrition needs and devise a customized plan.

The Program Is Divided Into Two Phases:

Phase 1: The Beginning Journey

The Beginning Journey is an initial 8-week program that focuses on the basics of attaining a healthy weight and healthy well-being. This phase also includes an introduction to mindfulness and exercise.

Locations:

  • Health & Wellness Center, Warrington: Tuesdays 6 to 7 pm
  • Doylestown Hospital: Tuesdays 11:30 am to Noon (30-minute express meeting)

Phase 2: The Continuing Journey

The Continuing Journey includes five, 8-week segments that build on the nutrition and wellness knowledge learned in Phase 1. More in-depth nutrition and health-related topics that influence wellness, weight loss and weight management will be explored. Weekly recipes and mindfulness inspirations provided. A half-hour individual follow-up consultation can be scheduled upon completion of Phase 2.

Locations:

  • Health & Wellness Center, Warrington: Tuesdays 7 to 8 pm
  • Doylestown Hospital: Tuesdays 12:30 to 1 pm (30-minute express meeting)

After completing the Beginning Journey and the first eight weeks of the Continuing Journey series, participants are eligible to meet with the registered dietitian for a follow-up consultation.

  • $110 for each subsequent 8-week series
