Alliance expands Healthy Weights Initiative to Regina
The Healthy Weights Initiative, which launched in Moose Jaw two years ago, begins next week in Regina.
“This one is different,” says Dr. Mark Lemstra. “It’s not just a diet. It’s not just an exercise program.” Instead, the HealthWeights Initiative is a four-pronged approach to achieving a healthy weight.
In Moose Jaw, where more than 500 people have been through the program so far, Lemstra said 80 per cent finished the program, compared with 14 per cent who stick with traditional weight-loss programs.
