First Step is a 15-week lifestyle change program that offers weight loss assistance through individual weekly meetings with our Registered Dietitians, Exercise Physiologists, and Behavioral Specialists. It is appropriate for people of all weight ranges. The program will help you make changes in activity level, eating practices, and other behaviors related to weight control. We emphasize lifestyle change, which means we're going to help you make healthy changes that you can actually sustain long after you complete the program, thus enabling you to maintain a healthier weight for the rest of your life. First Step promotes a significant yet gradual and long-lasting weight loss.

The Focus program is a 15-week intensive lifestyle change program designed to induce larger initial weight losses than traditional lifestyle change programs (i.e., First Step). Patients attend brief individual appointments that rotate among the clinic sub-specialties (nutrition, exercise, behavioral). The early part of the program involves a diet that consists primarily of meal replacements (e.g., nutrition bars and shakes) and provides a highly structured dietary intervention. During the latter part of the program, the diet changes to a primarily food based meal plan and shifts towards more moderate weight loss. Individualized dietary and exercise planning is provided throughout the program. Our emphasis on lifestyle change means we're going to help you learn to make healthy changes that you can actually sustain long after you complete the program, thus enabling you to maintain a healthier weight for the rest of your life.
We also offer 23-week and 27-week versions of our Focus program, for those wanting to lose a little more.
