The Healthy Weight Plan

Eat less, move more, right? If only it really was that simple. Dropping pounds is a difficult task, especially when you’re going it alone.

Mayo Clinic experts in weight management and behavior change have spent decades trying to help individuals develop weight loss plans that actually work. We’ve taken that knowledge and applied it to the Healthy Weight Plan.

How is this program different? We’ve paired the proven tactics from the #1 New York Times bestselling book, The Mayo Clinic Diet, with a focused two-day session at the newly opened Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program, a state-of-the-art wellness facility in Rochester, Minn. And because we understand the difficulty of sticking with new behaviors while managing life’s demands, we include a year’s worth of remote support to help you keep it off for good.

You’ll leave knowing you have a strong connection to your Mayo Clinic team who will continue to support you on your journey when you’re back home. Your team will help you stay motivated and on track.
