A company weight loss program that works.

Brought to you by the American Diabetes Association® and Alere Wellbeing, the Weight Talk® program achieves measurable, sustainable weight loss for general health and the prevention and management of type 2 diabetes. 

Small Changes. Big Results.

With the ongoing, phone-based guidance of a dedicated coach or registered dietitian, participants set realistic weight goals and assess their eating habits, physical activity, and stress management. Then, using the weight management tips from their coach, they learn to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
