Study aimed to see if former pro football players faced the same fate as many professional boxers
The team at the Center for Weight Management (CWM) wants to help all patients achieve optimal weight loss and that is why the STRIVE program has been created. This program has been proven to be effective for our surgical patients and we want to offer a similar program to our medical weight loss patients.
STRIVE is a 5-week program that will help identify personal barriers or triggers and give you the opportunity to develop healthy skills for success. Each week will offer a new topic of discussion and focus on behaviors conducive to weight loss and establishing healthier habits.
STRIVE will offer a safe, supportive and nonjudgmental environment where you can explore personal challenges, discuss issues within the group, receive feedback from the group leader and individualize a plan. This is a closed group, where you will complete the 5-week program with the same people. This environment allows you the opportunity for accountability, as well as support and encouragement of each other.
