How it Works
Patients who are beginning their wellness journey may be overwhelmed by trendy diets, weight loss tactics, and other short-term fixes. Lauren visits with patients to discuss their health behavior goals and develop a specific plan adapted for their lifestyle and level of readiness for change. Together, they formulate a plan to integrate small, incremental changes into the patient’s routine.

Patients use goal-setting principles to determine specific goals with clear indicators of success. Ideally, patients become more apt to set process goals (e.g., walking 3 days a week) with less emphasis on outcome goals (e.g., reaching a certain number on a scale). Lauren is a key component to the Simple Weight Loss Program, assisting patients in experiencing growth throughout the weight loss process and maximizing their experience in physical activity, nutrition, and other health-related behaviors.
