Are you one of the millions of Americans who struggle with their weight? If so, the MUSC Health Weight Management Center can help. In fact, weve been helping people in the Charleston area to manage their weight since 1974.
Extra weight is not a character flaw. It's a complex problem that can impair your health and quality of life. Our specialists at the MUSC Health Weight Management Center understand the complexity of weight loss. A team of psychologists, physicians, dietitians, and exercise physiologists work together, using their diverse knowledge to help you reduce excess weight. MUSC is an academic medical center so patients benefit from the most current and safe weight management programs, medicines and advances through research.
We offer a full range of programs to serve the different needs of different people. However, all of our work with patients includes a strong emphasis on helping them to make the long-term lifestyle changes that are so important for success in the long run. We think of these changes as the ABCDS of lifestyle change:
Activity ChangesExercise is crucial to the long-term success of a weight loss program. The center helps you plan and maintain an exercise program.
Behavioral ChangesThe center helps you examine problematic eating behaviors and finds ways to change them.
Cognitive (Thinking) ChangesThe center helps you change the thought patterns that lead you to overeat or sabotage your own progress.
Dietary ChangesSuccessful long-term weight loss should be based on a healthy diet. A registered dietitian helps you form an eating plan you can live with.
Support SystemsThe process of losing weight and growing accustomed to new ways of dealing with food can be difficult. The center provides you with the support you need through group and individual sessions.
We're located in the Institute of Psychiatry building at 67 President Street in downtown Charleston. We also offer a Tuesday afternoon clinic in North Charleston at 8471 Resolute Way.
