Be Your BEST Self (BYBS) is a weight management and healthy lifestyle program designed for people who are committed to losing weight and improving their health. There is also a BYBS Kids and Teens program geared specifically for younger people.
Although good nutrition is crucial to good health, diet is not the only aspect of effective weight loss. Research shows that success depends on:
- healthy diet
- regular physical activity
- strong willingness to change
- realistic expectations and goals
An integral part of the program is group support, which is proven to influence success through positive feedback and encouragement. In addition to getting the encouragement you need to stay motivated, BYBS meetings include valuable lectures, tips and facts to keep you healthy, well-informed and losing weight. Attendance at these support groups is mandatory.
The program is 10 weeks long for current RSNC patients and 13 weeks for new patients. New patients receive three visits as part of the program, at which they receive a full physical exam, relevant lab tests (if required) and a urinalysis.
During the first week, participants keep a detailed record of their diet, eliminations and general energy levels.
New patients – 13 weeks: $199 + tax*
Current patients – 10 weeks: $99 + tax
*includes three naturopathic visits, a full physical exam, relevant lab tests (if required) and a urinalysis
