Weight Management

Welcome to Spectrum’s Weight Management Program!

About

Spectrum’s weight management program is approximately 13 weeks; during this time, you will work collaboratively with our physician, registered dietitian nutritionist, behavioral health provider and other team members on a weekly basis to accomplish your weight loss goals.  This will be achieved through a number of interventions, including lifestyle changes (such as diet and exercise), weight loss medication, and consultations for bariatric surgery.

FAQ’s

What if I miss a week (or several)?

No worries!  Just schedule an appointment the following week and we will help you pick back up where you left off.

Can I schedule all of my weekly visits in advance?

Yes!  This is highly encouraged, especially for people who know they will be free at a certain time each week.  

Should I log what I eat each week?

Yes! This will help your providers assist you in optimizing your diet.  We recommend you fill out both sides of the provided forms to record all food, exercise and thoughts/emotions tied to eating.
