Naturally Slim® Program - Reduction of Metabolic Syndrome

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. Application for the program will include free screening for metabolic syndrome (which includes a fasting blood draw, weight/height measurements and blood pressure reading), performed at Genesis Medical Center, Aledo. If you are selected to participate, based on risk factors and income, you will register at the Naturally Slim site.

The Naturally Slim program consists of a series of online informative videos (you will need to have access to high-speed access). Once a week, a new session becomes available that builds upon the previous material for a period of 10 weeks. A mid-point meeting will also be held in addition to a celebratory final meeting.

  • Genesis Philanthropy application Process, September 4-10: If you are chosen to participate in the program at no cost (based on numbers, medical condition or income) you will be notified to continue with the Naturally Slim registration process. (You will also be notified if you do not qualify).
