Ready to Lose Weight Management Program
Weight loss isnít always simple, but itís easier when you find a program that can be incorporated into your lifestyle. UConn Healthís Ready to Lose Weight Management Program offers a comprehensive weight loss program to help you lose weight safely, and keep it off for good.
The Ready to Lose Weight Management Program is a six-week weight loss program led by a registered dietitian. It is based on teaching individuals how to adopt healthy behaviors to lose weight slowly and permanently. Our program focuses on empowering individuals to make behavioral changes such as adopting a low-fat, plant-based diet; portion control; exercise, and using mindful eating techniques.
The program consists of an introductory class where you will receive a personalized meal plan, followed by five classes that will consist of a weigh-in, discussion of progress; and a timely nutrition topic such as eating out strategies, cooking light and right, emotional eating, exercise, smart shopping, and mindful eating and holiday eating.
