At Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, we make it possible. Our Medical Weight Loss team will design a plan with behavior modification strategies that work for you.

Finding Your Challenges

With our comprehensive approach, we work with you to identify your specific problem areas. We help you recognize issues such as binge eating, stress eating, emotional eating, grazing and others. These habits can persist even after weight loss surgery, leading to regained pounds.

Your lifestyle and habits—such as cooking for your family or picking up snacks for coworkers— can add another layer of challenges For young people with weight problems, teasing and bullying may only makes their eating habits worse.

Your Personal Plan

A psychologist and psychiatrist are part of our program, so there’s no need to go to a different location for these services. These specialists are trained to help with the full range of eating behaviors that lead to weight gain. Depending on your needs and your goals, you may choose individual or group counseling. Either way, you’ll get emotional support and constructive strategies for overcoming your habits. Adolescents in our program get help that fits their developmental stage, schedule and lifestyle.
