What do you dream about? Enjoying a hike? Riding a bike? Playing with your kids? Obesity not only robs you of ordinary, daily activities, but it can create a number of health problems. Diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, and many more diseases can all result from being overweight. These and many other health problems often improve significantly with weight loss.

It’s time to live your dream! Portneuf Weight Management can help. We offer a personalized, holistic approach to weight loss to help ensure your success. You receive support and counseling from a multidisciplinary team of specialists — all dedicated to you and your dreams of weight loss. Your team includes a Nurse Practitioner, Registered Dietitian, Physical Therapist, and Psychologist.

If you are interested in weight loss surgery, our team can help you. There are many requirements that must be met prior to proceeding with surgery. Indeed, if anyone has told you that surgery is the easy way out, they are very wrong. Many healthy lifestyle changes need to be made prior to surgery. Insurance companies also have many requirements that need to be completed prior to surgery. Our program can help to educate and assist you through this whole process.

We have been helping people make changes to be successful with losing weight and keeping the weight off long-term. Lifestyle changes need to be made to keep the weight off forever.
