Weight management support programs

Beginning fitness
This free 60-minute seminar gives participants a chance to learn about the habits of successful exercisers and overcome their own personal obstacles to maintaining an active lifestyle.

One-on-one nutrition counseling
Follow-up visits with our registered dietitian can help keep you on the right path. As you encounter life-changing events or everyday life obstacles, your RD will help you make the necessary adjustments to your eating plan so you can navigate these temptations and maintain a healthy weight.

Resting metabolic rate (RMR) re-measurement
With weight loss your metabolism will likely change. Re-measuring your RMR will help determine an appropriate calorie level to re-ignite weight loss or maintain your new body weight.

Clinical trials

Scripps Clinic Center for Weight Management is continually researching new methods to help people who have weight issues. Through collaboration with Scripps Clinic Nutrition and Metabolic Research Center, patients may have an opportunity to participate in clinical trials for medical devices and medications being tested as possible treatments for obesity, diabetes and hypertension.
