Weight Management Program

Weight Management Evaluation/Medication Management Evaluation

The program begins with a comprehensive metabolic evaluation by the Weight Management Team consisting of:

  • Physician/NP/PA evaluation
  • Nutrition evaluation and training
  • Behavioral Health evaluation
  • Clinical exercise
  • Physiologist evaluation and training
  • Pharmacist evaluation and training

The results of your overall evaluation then become the basis for your personal weight management plan. We offer a structured 12 week educational series that focuses on nutrition, exercise, and behavior modification where each week builds on the previous week’s topic.

Weight loss medications (when applicable) are prescribed by the medical director and correct usage is taught by the pharmacist.

Exercise Component

An exercise component will be available for those needing supervision and instruction on safe exercise practices. The program meets one-two times per week for up to 12 weeks at the Lifestyle Management Institute in Danvers. Virtual options are also available.

During the exercise sessions, exercise physiologists will be on site to assist and guide participants to reach their goals through instruction and demonstration of a variety of cardiovascular machines, weights, resistance bands and balance equipment. These sessions are designed to improve your flexibility, strength, and endurance as well as promote weight loss.

In addition, we will provide lifestyle management tips to help keep the weight off and improve overall health status. The Weight Management Team will continually work with each participant to help you reach your goal and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
