Weight Management Program
Maintaining a healthy weight is a key to long-term wellness. While weight problems can lead to conditions such as hypertension, high cholesterol and diabetes, controlling weight can make chronic conditions more manageable. Plus, being at a healthy weight can improve your overall mood.
Weight control should be a part of a healthy life, not the fleeting result of a fad diet. Novant Health Hillsdale Medical Associates has created the Nutrition for Optimal Wellness and Weight (NOW!) Weight Management Program, a medical plan for healthy weight control. The program includes medical screening and close monitoring by a physician or nurse practitioner, who works with you to develop a diet and exercise plan that works with your lifestyle.
Who Is NOW! For?
NOW! is for anyone who wants to achieve a healthy body weight and lifestyle. A medical screening will determine if you are a candidate for the program. Generally, the ideal candidates for our program are over 14 years of age, have medical complications requiring weight loss or weight-induced activity limitations, and have a body mass index greater than 30 or a BMI greater than 25 with other medical conditions present.
