Wesley Healthcare is pleased to introduce a Weight Management program for Adults with Diabetes. The CORE4 Diabetes program is conducted by Registered Dietitians (RD). RD's are the experts in nutritional care and weight management. CORE4 Diabetes by Sodexo is a 12-week Adult Weight Management program developed by RD's and based on the evidence and guidelines from the AND and the American Diabetes Association.

Phase One is the weight loss component and begins with an individual appointment with a Registered Dietitian. In this session individual needs, treatment plans, and goal setting will be discussed. The individual session is followed by 11 group sessions. Individual appointments will be scheduled during the two weeks prior to the start of group classes. Group classes meet once per week for one hour.

Each participant receives a workbook which follows the weekly CORE4 Diabetes presentations. The workbook includes topics and exercises to reinforce the weekly discussion. The program encompasses nutrition and diabetes education, physical activity, and the role of behavioral therapy in weight reduction and weight management. Nutrition education focuses on basic nutrition components--carbohydrate and calorie composition, food portions, supplements, food preparation, dining out, food labels, and shopping tips. The physical activity module addresses the role of exercise and physical activity in weight reduction and weight management.

Lastly, the behavior modification modules focus on personal awareness, hunger and appetite, and our relationship to food. CORE4 Diabetes Adult Weight Management provides participants with the knowledge and tools they need to successfully manage their diabetes and weight forever by making better choices.
