Live Well Now

Live Well Now was created based on the most current weight-loss research and encourages a self-care approach for bodies of all sizes. Lifestyle changes covered in the class include choosing wholesome foods, living an active life, mental health wellness and stress management – all critical components of preventing and treating both obesity and chronic disease. Participants will be given the tools to help with shopping, cooking and meal planning, improving strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness, and tips on identifying stressors and how to manage stress.

Grocery Store Tours

Available by request for individuals or groups up to eight people. These sessions can take place in most local grocery stores including Kroger, JayC and IGA. Cost is $50.

Med Gem Analysis

During a one-on-one appointment, you will learn how many calories your body burns at rest. This is important information for those trying to lose or gain weight, as well as high school athletes or people with certain medical conditions like thyroid disorders, COPD, sleep apnea and Congestive Heart Failure. Appointments are 30 minutes.

Sport and Exercise Nutrition

Whether you are a competitive athlete or just a weekend warrior, our dietitians can provide you with a nutrition plan to take your performance to the next level. Appointments include an initial nutrition assessment and follow-up.

 

Healthy Steps

This FREE program is available for Medicare Part B participants with a BMI ≥ 30. Through Medicare benefits, you can receive up to 22 face-to-face meetings with a dietitian. Sessions are available through many of MMH's primary care offices. To see if it's offered at your location, talk to your healthcare provider.

Individual Counseling

Meet privately with a registered dietitian to discuss nutrition needs for weight loss, pregnancy, GI health and more.

Group Medical Appointment

Available for those wanting counseling for gastrointestinal disorders or adult weight  management, these appointments are completed in groups of two to four and provide a low-cost alternative to individual counseling. Price varies depending on length of appointment.

Heart-Healthy Living

Offered the first and third Thursday of each month, this hour-long class helps those looking to decrease their blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides or risk for future heart-related events by discussing heart-healthy strategies including diet, exercise and stress management.

Eat Well. Live Well.

At MMH, we’re committed to helping you live a healthier life. That’s why, effective Monday, June 25, you’ll notice a new labeling system in the Café that promotes healthier food choices. To help you identify which foods are best for you, all items will be labeled using our Go-Slow-Whoa system below. If you have questions or would like to provide us with feedback on the labeling system, email us at dietitian@mmhealth.org.
