Not a diet

Live It! is not a diet. It is a new way of life. With this weight-management program, you will learn how to become healthy both physically and emotionally.

How it works

As a Live It! member, you learn the physical, mental and emotional elements of losing weight. You’ll join a group of 15-20 people who meet weekly for six months. Each week, you receive small homework assignments created to help practice what you’ve learned.

We help you learn healthy eating habits and look for anything in your lifestyle that may be keeping you from losing weight.

You can also make individual appointments with our team of professionals.

Most people will lose a modest amount of weight, but will have major improvements in the quality of their life and health.

Is Live It! a fit for you?

If you would like to learn how your thinking and emotions play into losing and managing weight, Live It! could be for you. By joining a group, you can enjoy the support of others who are on the same journey.

Success stories

"I’m very glad I took the class. All earlier attempts at weight loss, even well-organized ones, were fraught with pressure and never successful for any length of time. Live It! succeeds. My weight loss has been slow, but steady. Recording my meals and exercise has kept me alert and focused. I will be sorry when it is over."

"It didn't take long for the members to feel a real connection to each other. I feel like I made a lot of valuable and supportive friends there. The monthly groups after have introduced me to even more people who have the same thing in common: 'diets just don't work and there's a healthy, effective, alternative way' to do it."

"The Live It! program is a safe path to better health and well-being. We found a circle of support that will be ongoing. We are not alone. We learned greater self-acceptance and a more positive outlook about our bodies, regardless of where we are in our journey."
