UH OptiWeight™ Weight Loss Program Helps Our Employees and Physicians Live Healthier

UH OptiWeight

UH OptiWeight is a 12-week weight optimization program created and led by registered dietitians at the UH Accountable Care Organization. We designed the program to help employees learn more about nutrition education, physical activity and behavioral modifications that can help them live a healthier lifestyle and meet their optimal weight.

UH OptiWeight is Not a Diet

UH OptiWeight is not a diet because we know that fad diets do not work long-term. Instead, UH OptiWeight is based on scientific research proven techniques to help participants live a healthier life, including:

  • Making the best nutrition choices among the multitude of conflicting messages in the media
  • Choosing the optimal balance of macronutrients (fat, protein, carbohydrates) to meet goals
  • Determining individual caloric needs to meet goals
  • Properly deciphering nutrition labels and food product claims
  • Learning all about portion sizes and secrets to fool yourself full on less food
  • Making the best activity and exercise choices
  • Understanding the widespread magnitude and serious health risks of obesity
  • Discovering inner motivation for lifestyle change
