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.

Your best weight is the weight you achieve while living the healthiest lifestyle you can truly enjoy.”
