For those who would like to better manage their health through diet, we offer weight loss programs in our inviting, state-of-the-art facility. Our classrooms are equipped with smartboard technology and videoconferencing equipment.

Beyond Diets*
This is a program that is based on recent medical literature that teaches participants how to make healthy food choices, increase and enjoy physical activity and improve lifestyle behaviors. For those who need a more comprehensive approach, weight loss support groups are held weekly.

OPTIFAST Program*
This is a medically-monitored program for treating obesity that combines a high-quality calorie-controlled liquid diet with behavior modification, nutrition education, exercise and psychological support. When completed, participants transition to the Beyond Diets program.

* Both the Beyond Diets and OPTIFAST Program are also suitable for individuals who are scheduled for bariatric surgery and need to participate in a structured weight-loss program.

OPTIFAST Lite Program
Looking for a jump start but a full fast program isn't the right choice for you? OPTIFAST Lite could be what you are looking for. Participants consume three OPTIFAST shakes plus a regular meal for a total of 1100 calories. Meal selections include lean protein, vegetables, fruit and low fat dairy products. Our Registered Dieticians will work with you to choose foods to eat for your regular meal and help customize your plan.
