The Healthy Weight For Life Essentials program is a personalised goal orientated weight management program led by a team of specially trained dietitians. You will be provided with 4 personal dietetic consults spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.
The program focuses on a practical step by step implementation of the key pillars of sustainable long term healthy living and weight management.
Our dietitians will work with you in the one-on-one phone appointment consults to discuss your priorities and together develop personal goals and action plans to help you achieve the outcomes that are important to you.
They will make sure to reassess your goals with you along the way and adapt your plan based on your current level of progress and any changes to your motivations and challenges.
How will the Essentials program help me?
The program helps build understanding of the influences on health behaviours such as social, physical and psychological factors. It will guide you to find foods that you enjoy for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks in the portions and serving sizes that will benefit your health.
The program supports you to make simple, achievable and realistic changes to your day to day eating and activity choices, habits and routine to benefit your overall health and wellbeing, for life.
