You will learn to eat better without having to give up the foods you love and add physical activity such as taking a walk to your weekly schedule. The coach will also facilitate discussions and help make the program fun and engaging. A support group of people with similar goals and challenges. Together, you can share ideas, celebrate successes, and work to overcome obstacles. In some programs, the participants stay in touch with each other during the week.
