Group Lifestyle Balance is a weekly weight management program facilitated by Lifestyle Coaches including a Registered Dietitian and Physiotherapist. It is designed to help you make lifestyle choices to prevent diabetes and also prevent or treat metabolic syndrome. The program will help you reach a healthy balance between two parts of your lifestlye: what you eat and how physically active you are.

To register, please call the Barrie Community Health Centre (705) 734- 9690 ext. 256 and speak with Sonia R.

My Best Weight

Many people will change their eating patterns or add more activity to lose weight, but tend to find that, over time, they may return to their starting weight. The My Best Weight Program has been developed to help individuals achieve and maintain their best weight using cognitive behavioural strategies, self-monitoring and dietary assessment. Often a weight reduction of 5-10% will create profound changes in your overall health and wellbeing.

Who can be referred?

Adults (aged 18+) with a BMI of 30 or greater, or those with a BMI of 27-30 with comorbidities (i.e. hypertension or diabetes).

We accept referrals from medical practitioners such as your family doctor.

What can you expect?

After you have been referred by your family physician or nurse practitioner you will be contacted by our administrative staff.

Your first appointment is a group information session where you will learn more about the program and the basic reasons why obesity is a chronic disease.

If you would like to continue in the program, we will rebook you for a one-on-one appointment with either a Registered Nurse or Registered Dietitian.

In your appointments, you and your Nurse/Dietitian will focus on behaviours, thoughts and emotions around eating and activity. We will provide support to focus on your personal overeating triggers; spot the barriers and help create a pathway to success.

We will also talk about the option to use medication or surgery to support you in your weight-loss journey. If you are interested in these treatments, your Nurse/Dietitian will arrange an appointment with Dr. Zatelny for additional care.

We offer flexibility for the follow-up appointments to match your lifestyle. When starting the program, we will usually ask to see you every 2-4 weeks either in-person, via video or telephone.
