Weight Loss & Nutrition Counseling
Eating nutritious foods, regular exercise, and maintaining a health weight are vital components to one’s physical health. Carrying around excess weight can cause people to feel self-conscious and depressed, greatly reducing their quality of life. Excess weight may also increase one’s risk of cancer, congestive heart failure and diabetes. Our services are provided by registered dietitians and exercise specialists.

CaroMont Health offers health screenings that include:
1. A health risk appraisal called Personal Wellness Profile,
2. Basic Biometrics (height, weight, blood pressure, waist circumferences, and
3. Cholesterol mechanics to get triglycerides and blood glucose panels. Screenings provide beneficial information about one’s general health and results may be shared with your primary care physician.
If you would like to discuss your result onsite at each screen evaluation confidentially, health and wellness coaches are available. It is important to remember that while screenings provide a good health overview, individuals still need to monitor their own body and schedule regular exams with their primary care physicians. Check our Events Calendar to see upcoming screenings. (Add link to events calendar)
