Behavior Modification & Lifestyle Change
We strive to utilize the non-diet approach which maintains that the body will attain its natural weight if the individual eats healthfully, becomes attuned to hunger and fullness cues, and incorporates physical activity. This approach focuses on achieving health rather than attaining a certain weight. We promote size acceptance and maintaining respect for the diversity of body shapes and sizes.
Given the evidence that a 5% to 10% loss of initial weight can result in health benefits, that many people set weight-loss goals that are unrealistic, and that fat discrimination continues to plague society, this approach often helps people to develop a better relationship with food and a healthier perspective about their bodies.
