The Slim4Life program offers a strategy that encourages lifelong weight loss and a healthy lifestyle through counseling, meal planning and nutritional supplements. Slim4Life places an emphasis on management following the initial weight loss to reduce the risk of rebound weight gain.
Slim4Life offers an initial consultation to discuss the client’s needs during which a nutritionist takes a medical history and health goals. After beginning the program, the client can drop in for counseling sessions up to three times per week. These counseling services offer support and strategies to achieve long-term weight loss.
The counseling sessions involve behavioral education to teach clients healthier ways of eating and an easy-to-follow regimen designed to last a lifetime so the client can stay at a healthy weight. The counselor also uses this time to track progress to ensure goals are met and, if weight loss slows, adjust the regimen as necessary.
Slim4Life designs its program with meal plans using ingredients that can be found in regular supermarkets. They offer supplements to boost metabolism and meal replacement shakes and snacks to aid weight loss. The program aims to keep clients taking in reduced calorie loads per day, and Slim4Life's line of supplements contain vitamins and minerals to complement the lower-calorie diet.
