HELPS offering Therapeutic Lifestyle Change program

The following is a guest post from HELPS (Healthy Exercise and Lifestyle Programs):

HELPS at Wake Forest is now offering the Therapeutic Lifestyle Change (TLC) Program.

The TLC program is a three-month long medically directed, professionally supervised Therapeutic Lifestyle Change program that is free to all faculty and staff of the university and designed to develop a healthy and active lifestyle utilizing exercise and education programs.

What will I receive?

  • Individualized assessments, therapies and follow-up. Entry physical activity levels are evaluated with an exercise stress test and physical function measures. This information is used to determine and define the amount of physical activity you need to foster a healthy and active lifestyle.
  • Entry dietary intake is assessed through online food records. Specific calorie, nutrient and food group changes are identified.
  • Supervised exercise sessions at our conveniently located monitored exercise facility. Located close to campus next to BB&T Field in the Health & Exercise Science Clinical Research Center.
  • Weekly small group sessions held in the Worrell Professional Center. These group sessions meet weekly in Worrell, Room 1162 on Mondays from 12 to 1 p.m. starting in February 2020 and will last for three months. These sessions will teach behavioral strategies for
    the management of physical activity and diet. Cognitive  teaching is combined with psychological approaches to take the participant beyond the limits of “willpower.” Personal journals are used as a basis for program development, strategy monitoring
    and evaluation.
