Weight Loss Programs

Weight Loss Programs by ELVPHD

Reducing obesity rates in our district is one of our top priorities. Data shows that 39.4% of ELVPHD service area residents are obese and this has traditionally been higher than the national average. In addition to healthy weight statistics, 71% of our residents also reported eating less than the recommended servings of fruit, 11.5% reported eating no vegetables on an average day and 72% did not exercise for at least 20-30 minutes more than 3 times per week. 

To help people in our health district choose to adopt a healthier lifestyle, we have two programs which we invite you to be a part of - SCALE DOWN Weight Loss and Just for the Health of It (health coaching)!  Please see below for details and how to get started! In addition to the two individual programs noted below, we also work with businesses in our district to provide health coaching/worksite wellness sessions in a group format (often over the lunch hour or before/after work on site at the business).

Scale Down Weight Loss Program: ELVPHD offers the Scale Down Weight Loss Program twice per year in our district. We alternate this program between being an In-Person class and an Online-based class. Our Scale Down Weight Loss Program is based around the CDC's Diabetes Prevention Program curriculum. This class concentrates on making lifelong healthy changes that are realistic and sustainable. Over 200 people have participated in our program since we began it in 2015! Contact us at if you would like to be added to the notification list for the next Scale Down class series. 

Just for the Health of It...Health Coaching: Ladies...Are you ready to do something for YOUR health? We invite you to take advantage of our FREE health coaching sessions! Health coaching is about helping YOU achieve what YOU want! We would love to help you reach your healthy lifestyle goals...
