Baptist Health Community Outreach invites women between the ages of 40 and 60 to participate in Weight-Wise, a new eight-week weight loss program.
Sessions will be held on Tuesdays between Sept. 26 and Nov. 14 from 5:30-7 p.m. at Baptist Health Community Outreach, 10117 Kanis Road in Little Rock.
This free program is facilitated by a registered dietitian nutritionist and focuses on changing lifestyle behaviors to promote weight loss. Participants learn to set achievable goals, increase confidence, solve problems, and build group social support.
Rather than just giving information or advice, these group meetings help participants decide on and plan for lifestyle changes they wish to make. Weight-Wise encourages:
-Eating more fruits and vegetables.
-Eating less saturated fat.
-Medium calorie restrictions (for 1–2 pounds per week of weight loss).
-150 minutes per week of physical activity.
Door prizes and refreshments will be provided.
