For nearly 20 years, the Weight Management Program at The Ohio State University Center for Wellness and Prevention (CWP), has helped change people's lives through successful weight loss. Our program results are consistently above the National Institutes for Health (NIH) national expected weight loss average.
Our success is based on offering a complete wellness and total health approach to weight management. We provide you with education on all aspects of attaining a healthier lifestyle – nutrition, behavior change and exercise. Weight loss and a healthier lifestyle will not only help you feel better, but can help prevent chronic health conditions, such as heart disease and diabetes, and prevent complications associated with chronic health conditions.
Our medically managed weight loss programs are conveniently located at Ohio State's Center for Wellness and Prevention, which has a fitness center and fitness classes.
We offer different weight management programs to meet your lifestyle and goals:
Developed by the experts at The Ohio State University Medical Center, the six-month Living Well Program helps you lose weight through good nutrition, behavior change and exercise. It includes weekly classes, health coaching, an individualized meal plan, one-on-one education about nutrition and exercise, and optional membership to the CWP Fitness Center. You receive support from our team of healthcare professionals throughout the program. After the initial six month program, you may choose to continue on with Phase 2.
