I recently gave a webinar presentation for The Obesity Society on personalization in weight management.
I shared the latest research on the importance of taking into account each person’s traits, habits and attitudes when developing an individualized treatment plan.
One size does not fit all when it comes to helping people manage weight.
I also shared my research validating my Six Factor Quiz as a targeted weight management tool that helps people identify their lifestyle issues pertinent to their weight and health.
Developed and validated by factor analysis, this quiz identifies each person’s lifestyle, habits and mindset that affect one’s weight.
The quiz is also a key part of my Six Factors to Fit program and book, published by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
You can take my short, FREE Six Factor Quiz online and get your personalized results.
If you’re struggling to get your weight under control, here are some ways my Six Factors to Fit program can help you:
1- It Offers a Program Personalized to You
Different than following generic weight loss advice that may have worked well for your friend or family member, you will get a program targeted just for you.
Since weight management is personal, influenced by your likes and dislikes, goals and individual challenges, doesn’t it make sense that the program should be tailor-made for you?
2-It Starts with Lifestyle Modification
We know that lifestyle modification is the foundation of all weight management treatment modalities.
Your Six Factor Quiz scores reveal your lifestyle-related factors that get in the way of losing weight and keeping it off.
Even if you need additional help that may include referrals to other experts or the use of weight loss medications, following a personalized lifestyle modification program will serve you well in your weight loss journey.
3-It Uses a Progressive Approach of Nudges and Tweaks
Rather than having you completely overhaul your lifestyle, we offer gradual changes in eating and living that are easier to implement and stick with.
You also learn how to build your own healthy-eating meal plan based on your personal tastes and food preferences.
For the past 4 decades, I have dedicated my career to offering personalized care to those who struggle with weight.
Now, with the publication of Six Factors to Fit: Weight Loss that Works for You!, I hope to share my insights and help more people.
