Naturally Slim® Program

Battling weight comes at a terrible cost. Beyond the emotional trauma and low self esteem that many people feel each time they look in a mirror or wander through a clothing store, there are the medical and lifestyle consequences - many of which are very serious and can lead to impairment, disease and even early death. For those that have tried dieting, losing weight also comes at a high cost - the financial cost of purchasing foods as well as the emotional difficulty of giving up the foods we love. There are no foods to buy, no points to count, no guidelines on what you can and can't eat. The secret to Naturally Slim is really simple common sense, and the method for success simply involves learning some new techniques about how and when you should eat. No gimmicks, no fads, no crashing, flushing, suffering, sacrificing and no long-term commitments.

Genesis Philanthropy in conjunction with Mercer Foundation for Health is offering free participation in the Naturally Slim program which will include free screening for metabolic syndrome. The Naturally Slim program consists of a series of online informative videos. Once a week, a new session becomes available that builds upon the previous material for a period of 10 weeks.
