Village Health Partners‘ 8-week group weight management course is taught by our licensed dietitian, Melanie Wilder. Each week, Melanie focuses on important weight loss and nutrition factors like balanced nutrition, physical activity, portion control, weight goal setting and stress management. She can also counsel patients individually during one-on-one sessions to determine your weight-related health issues and provide the appropriate healthy lifestyle changes. By participating in the weight loss program you will learn how to add nutritional foods to your meals and instill healthy eating habits among your family, all while getting closer to your target weight in a safe environment with medical supervision. Weight loss helps prevent health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
Here’s what our Plano weight loss program participants are saying:
“The 8-week course was more than helpful. Melanie is knowledgeable and full of examples to implement in daily life. I really hated to see the class end! Mindful eating, journaling, and not letting a lapse become a collapse have been great tools for me. Excellent course! The session about cognitive behavior was an eye opening bonus.”
“I think this plan works good for me because it’s NOT a diet. It’s being aware of what I’m putting into my body and making better decisions. I tend to rebel against restriction. This makes it my choice – period. Thank you!”
“Love this course. The information was so helpful and really effective. It helped me to positively changed my outlook and methods. Melanie was so encouraging, positive and motivating!”
“Melanie is easily the best resource VHP has. She has done more to help me improve my nutrition, health and lifestyle than all of the healthcare providers I have worked with combined. Thank you for having her here for patients.”
