Weight Loss Program

Discover the New You

At OCWMG, we offer a weight management program that consists of one-on-one weekly visits with our Registered Dietitian and monthly visits with one of our Nurse Practitioners for a period of 12 weeks. During these visits, you will be introduced to many different tools like Mindful Eating, Intuitive Eating and Behavior Modification, and encouraged to use them along your journey. Gradually you will be making small realistic steps toward permanent lifestyle changes.

If you feel you are ready for a lifestyle change which involves incorporating basic healthy eating, physical activity and changing your habits, then the Back to Basic program is for you. If you feel you need an added tool like an appetite suppressant to “jump start” your weight loss journey, then the Medical Weight Loss program may be for you.
