Weekly group sessions focus on making healthy nutrition choices and behavior changes such as emotional eating and eating triggers.
Phase 2: Adapting (transition to food)
Gradual transition to food while still losing weight through a dietitian-guided, reduced-calorie meal plan for the remaining two meals per day. Weekly group sessions continue to focus on nutrition and behavior choices.
