Nutrition and Weight Management

Nutrition Counseling
Our dietitians are very skilled at helping patients with any specialty dietary needs. We work with health and lifestyle improvements, food and dietary allergy issues, eating disorders, sports and nutritional needs,oncology patients, and more! We also offer several specialty programs for weight management and work with patients before and after bariatric surgery for their specialty needs.

Healthy Weigh for Kids
The Healthy Weigh for Kids is a nutrition and weight management program designed to promote, teach and understand proper nutrition and healthy lifestyles. Behavioral and activity/fitness components to meet the needs of all patients and their families are emphasized.

Adult Weight Loss Programs
For adults ready to make the lifestyle changes to lose weight, we offer two options for weight loss programs. Both programs include weekly weigh-in and group education sessions, behavioral assessment and coaching and the assistance of a navigator in helping you stay on track.
  • A Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD) program that requires comprehensive medical monitoring is offered for those who have 40 or more pounds to lose. This program uses a nutritionally complete beverage as your sole source of nutrition.
  • A Low Calorie Diet (LCD) program is offered that incorporates a combination of healthy foods and/or meal replacement beverages and snack products.

Insurance

The FMH Center for Diabetes and Nutrition Services accepts most insurances and adult weight loss programs have out-of-pocket expenses. As a new patient coming into our program be sure to have a Physician Order Form from your referring doctor. We ask that you call ahead to your insurance company to make sure you understand your benefits for diabetes education and nutritional counseling.
