The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit is offering what they call a proven weight-loss program that gets results.

Windsor-Essex County residents can join a Registered Dietitian and learn how to change old habits, eat better, be more active, and lose weight and keep it off.

The classes run for ten consecutive weeks and cost $75 per person. This covers the cost of program materials, including a quality pedometer.

Losing Weight the Healthy Weigh is for people who meet the following criteria:

  • Are between the ages of 20 and 65 years old.
  • Have a body mass index (BMI) of 25 to 40 (BMI greater than 40 requires medical consent to participate).
  • Don’t have an existing heart condition (e.g. recent myocardial infarction, angina).
  • Don’t have diabetes mellitus.
  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding a child nine months or younger.
  • Are able to walk without assistance for 15 continuous minutes.

The classes will take place on Thursdays starting on October 17th and running until to December 19th from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit in the Essex Civic Centre located at  360 Fairview Avenue West.
