ABSTRACT
Abstract: Obesity and overweight are complex conditions that contribute to many chronic diseases. Treatment should include a dietary regimen, physical activity, and behavior therapy. This manuscript describes Weight Loss 101: A Healthy Approach to Weight Loss, a college student health center based program that is designed to facilitate college students exerting self-control over their nutritional habits as part of a healthy weight loss process. The nutrition education covers such issues as a personal diet plan, portion control, and label reading. Self-monitoring, stimulus control, and problem solving skills are behavior change techniques included in Weight Loss 101. A step-by-step program model is provided.
