Healthy Living ProgramAre you looking for a lifestyle change that will last? Wayne HealthCare’s Healthy Living Series can help you develop and maintain a healthier lifestyle through small manageable changes in your eating, physical activity, and overall behavior.

In addition to weight loss, a healthier lifestyle can lower your risk of high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes. Plus, the extra bonus: a healthier lifestyle can save you $$$ in medical costs and expensive bad habits, like eating junk food.

Your instructors will share how to stay focused and overcome obstacles to eating healthy, staying active, and making behavioral changes. You’ll be encouraged and supported by your fellow class participants, as you embark on this exciting journey together.

Two Simple Goals:

  • Lose 5-7 percent of your body weight through lifestyle changes
  • Gradually increase physical activity to a minimum of 150 minutes a week (don’t worry, this is doable)

  • In addition to instruction and support, each participant will receive class materials, a pedometer, a measuring cup, a portion plate, a Calorie King book, and food and exercise trackers.
  • Classes are held on Wednesdays from 12-1 pm.
  • Most of the classes will be held in the hospital’s brand new $60 million addition.
