With obesity rates and their associated medical costs on the rise, employers are looking for real solutions to improve employee health and their organization’s bottom line. Some turn to quick fixes like fad diets, but then find it difficult to achieve long-term results.
Wondr Health® is different. It’s not a diet. It’s a mindful-eating program that helps your employees lose weight and keep it off. It starts with 10 weeks of skill-building focused on behavior modification, not dieting. After the first 10 weeks, participants receive ongoing counseling and support for one full year to reinforce skills and ensure long-term, sustainable results.
By helping your employees lose weight, you reduce the risks associated with obesity, pre-diabetes and metabolic syndrome (MetS), a cluster of risk factors that predicts serious and expensive conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
Typical program results include:
50 percent of participants reversed their MetS, 55 percent reduced their diabetes risk and 50 percent reversed their high blood pressure. (Of those who lost 5 percent or more of their body weight.)
And, while most Americans gain 1– 2 pounds each year, 83 percent of Wondr Health participants maintain their weight loss after one year.
