The Hernried Center
Sutter Weight Management Institute
At The Hernried Center, we treat obesity as a chronic disease of abnormal energy storage and not a lack of willpower. Patients understand that even if they lose weight, they will always be an obese person in a thinner body and at risk for regain.
One of the first principles participants learn is that "weight loss is not the cure for obesity." Effective lifetime weight management requires absorbing new concepts of nutrition, activity and conflict-resolution, then utilizing a new battery of problem-solving skills to implement and shape new behaviors.
If you are relatively healthy but would like to lose 10 to 25 pounds, this accelerated six- to eight-week program is designed for you. The physician-supervised program includes medical testing, laboratory monitoring and a specially formulated diet. Quick 20 also provides access to a 12- to 18-month aftercare program with private appointments and weekly small-group sessions.
The Rediscovery Program
If you would like to lose more than 25 pounds or have been advised by your doctor to lose weight, this comprehensive weight-loss program could be right for you. Ideal for those whose bodies fight weight loss, Rediscovery includes nutritionally complete meal replacements for some or all of your diet. The physician-supervised program also includes medical testing, laboratory monitoring and a specially formulated diet. Participation for 12 to 18 months in the Compass aftercare program is recommended and includes private appointments and weekly small-group sessions.
