may be best for people who do not wish to pursue the surgical option. You’ll spend one-on-one time with our weight loss experts — physicians, dietitians and exercise physiologists — and attend weekly group classes to ensure a safe weight loss experience.
Your first step toward medical weight loss with OhioHealth is to attend a free seminar. Each session is led by a highly skilled medical weight loss expert who will explain the details of the program and answer any questions you may have. In order to participate in the OhioHealth Weight Management program, you must attend one of these seminars.
To help you reach your goals, we use a proven method you can live with. Your weight management team will help you customize a meal plan using these two options as a starting point:
With either program, you’ll have regular weigh-ins and blood pressure checks, and a physician will meet with you every 12 weeks to review your progress toward an optimal weight loss. Your diet and exercise plan can then be adjusted to find the formula that works best for you.
Keeping excess weight off is as important as losing it, and you won’t be on your own as you transition into staying at your healthy weight. With our weight maintenance program, you’ll meet with a dietitian to develop a diet plan to help you maintain your weight loss, and with a psychologist to talk about making your healthy lifestyle changes permanent. You can also attend classes and support groups. We’re here to support your success, and you can participate in our weight maintenance program as long as you like.
Our surgical program uses advanced, minimally invasive techniques to achieve sustainable weight loss.
