Nutritious meal plans, including WEIGHT NO MORE Nutritional Food Products
- Food For Thought: A Guide to Nutrition Education
- Body Basics: A Guide to Exercise
- Life Steps: A Guide to Behavior Education
- Healthy Living: A Guide to Long-Term Weight Management
The objective of the WEIGHT NO MORE Educational Programs is to help clients learn and apply key behaviors associated with successful long-term weight maintenance ? healthy eating, daily activity and regular exercise, behavior modification, and effective relapse management and coping skills.
In the Food For Thought Nutrition Program, clients learn how to plan and consume meals that derive 25% of calories from protein, 55% of calories from carbohydrates and 20% of calories from fat. They learn how many servings per day are recommended from each food group and what quantity constitutes a serving size. The Food For Thought program provides clients with concrete, step by step guidelines to gradually change their eating practices and behaviors.
While exercise can help clients lose weight, research studies consistently demonstrate that it is critical for successful weight maintenance. Our goal in developing the Body Basics program (exercise) is to introduce clients to easy and practical exercise activities and routines that they feel comfortable doing and can use to develop an exercise plan for life. The Body Basics program emphasizes a gradual increase in exercise activity. The ultimate goal is to have them exercise for 40 minutes, 3 times per week. Since many clients will not be able to do this at the beginning of this program, Body Basics offers guidelines on how to gradually work up to this goal. To prevent boredom and provide variety, clients learn a number of convenient and easy to do exercises of which can be done in the comfort of their home, alone or with a friend.
In the Life Step program (Behavior Modification), clients are taught how to break the inappropriate links between eating and events other than physiologic hunger. Since behavior change is the cornerstone to successful weight loss, Life Steps teaches clients what conditions trigger unhealthy behaviors (i.e. eating high fat foods, not exercising), how to institute new healthy behaviors and how to use ?re-enforcers? (rewards) to help assure healthy behaviors persist. For many clients, a variety of events other than physical hunger can prompt them to eat. Clients also learn about the process of relapse and common ?high risk? situations (which precipitate relapses). Strategies for effectively coping with a variety of high risk situations are also provided.
The goal of Healthy Living (Maintenance Program) is to provide clients with an opportunity to confirm their commitment to their new healthy lifestyle and provide them with lessons and activities to expand their inventory of weight management skills. It is an ongoing and lifelong process. They learn creative ways to alter favorite recipes so they are more healthy and also learn how to incorporate ?forbidden foods? and alcohol into their meal plans. Using the Food Guide Pyramid, clients learn how to plan menus for a lifetime.
