Class description

Patients and UC Davis staff (who are also UCD patients; i.e. have a UCD MRN) are invited to join the LIFESTEPS® Weight Management Program and take positive steps towards reaching their weight management goals. The LIFESTEPS® Weight Management Program teaches participants to successfully take gradual steps toward changing eating and physical activity behaviors. Week by week, participants will learn about nutrient needs, portion sizes, the benefits of physical activity, and how to manage high risk eating situations to prevent relapse.

A UC Davis Registered Dietitian and trained LIFESTEPS® Instructor leads each participant in designing individualized eating and physical activity plans. In addition to the 12 weekly group sessions, each participant receives a workbook and other instructional materials. Classes are taught Wednesday evenings at 5:30 p.m. The program fee is $50. To register for the LIFESTEPS® program or for more information, please contact Evelyn Miller, MAS, RD, IBCLC at (916) 734-6224 x 3. Take the first step toward a healthier you.
