How To Keep The Weight Off
Our Weight Loss Maintenance Program exists because it is often easier to lose weight than keep it off. The goal of the program is to help you achieve and then maintain your weight loss long term. We begin to focus on sustaining your weight loss early in our programs and provide essential tools for your continued success. Our maintenance Program provides ongoing support including relapse prevention and individualized meal plans. The Maintenance Program is essential and may be the most important component of your successful weight loss program.
Step to Avoid Regaining Weight
We utilize a multidisciplinary approach called S.T.A.R. or Steps To Avoid Regain. Our program is based on the results of the National Weight Control Registry which studied the core behaviors of dieters who have lost significant amounts of weight and kept it off. We will help you implement these core behaviors into your lifestyle. Together with you we will determine zones of weight for you to monitor with action plans to put in place to help prevent regain.
Ongoing Support is the Key to Success
Ongoing support is provided and we will continue to help you implement lifestyle habits to maintain your weight loss. This support is a crucial tool for maintenance. Educational materials will be introduced to you and reviewed to help you understand how best to be successful long-term.
Customized Plans for Long Term Results
Your meal plan will be individualized and we will teach you how to make the best food choices. Studies have shown that the most successful maintainers often use 1 or 2 meal replacements daily. You can use the nutritionally balanced New Directions meal replacements if this technique of calorie control is best for you.
Physical Activity Program
We also design an exercise program that is essential for building lean muscle, maximizing your metabolism, and maintaining your weight loss. We will help you develop an exercise regimen that will work for you and can be sustained. Exercise programs are available which are supervised by our exercise specialists to ensure safety and appropriateness for your level of fitness and medical conditions.
