Our goal is to encourage you to make gradual long-term changes in your eating habits and lifestyle, by providing support and advice along the journey.
 

"I have lost 30 pounts and kept them off for almost two years closely working with Jodie in the Nutrition Counseling Center. The Center provides a knowledgable framework and supportive atmosphere, which made pursuing the weight loss possible. Jodie's support, ideas, reccomendations, and caring made the difference and helped me achieve my weight loss goal." -Sue F.

I know if I'd been less diligent, things could have gone very differently for Ben and me. Much of the credit for our success goes to you -- you are so knowledgable and responsive." -Allison G.
