Weight Management Program
The Henry Ford Weight Management Program is a clinically based program that is tailored to each patient's goals and needs. The program includes:
- Nutrition consults with registered dietitians
- Personal exercise/behavioral consults with exercise physiologists
- Online support programs
- Internet management program
- Long-term maintenance strategies
Adopting a more active lifestyle combined with eating foods to help you lose or maintain your weight provides your body with the best preventive medicine. Wellness is the best defense against weight-related diseases. It also means improving how you feel physically and emotionally, making the everyday activities of life - and experiencing the moments within it - even better.
Before enrolling in this program, you will need a signed referral from your doctor. An orientation fee is required for all patients interested in the Weight Management program. This $25 fee is not covered by insurance.
Achieving weight loss is a long-term process. We ask our program participants for a minimum of a four-month commitment. We also offer options to continue in our preventive and education programs beyond the initial four-month period.
