Naturally Slim®

Our next session of the highly successful weight loss program, Naturally Slim, will begin in January 2015! 

Want to participate? Begin by completing your FREE 2014 Wellness Screening by Quest Diagnostics. 

About the Program

Naturally Slim is a 10 week program featuring weekly videos, a workbook, health information and frequent correspondence and positive guidance from a personal health counselor. Each week features an online video (approximately 40 minutes long) for you to watch in the privacy of your own home and at your convenience.

This isn't a diet, it's a way of life. Naturally Slim is based on the belief that we are all thin on the inside – it is just how, when and why we eat that keeps us from being that truly thin person on the outside. Following this approach to weight loss, the program helps you discover your own beliefs about food and personal eating habits. By conquering the bad habits that have influenced your health and lifestyle and reshaping how you view food, Naturally Slim can help you lose weight and improve your health.
