For the Health & Fitness Professional…
Since 1988 THINK LIGHT! has been chosen by over 5,000 health & fitness program directors looking for a sensible, credible and affordable weight management program. Created by a team of health professionals – registered dietitians, behavioral specialists and exercise physiologists – THINK LIGHT! promotes a realistic, lifestyle approach to eating, exercise and behavior change with an eating plan that emphasizes “slow-carbs” rather than simple carbs. No gimmicks, no fads and no on-again, off-again diet.
As a health and fitness professional you can offer the THINK LIGHT! program in your facility either as a self-directed program or “packaged” together with your own support service (e.g. group meetings, one-on-one appointments, personal training sessions, health club memberships, telephone appointments, etc.)The THINK LIGHT! Facilitator Manual is a downloadable pdf that includes all the tools needed to set up an in-house program.
- 8 fully scripted lesson plans and reproducible handouts corresponding to the Support and Education Program
- new client orientation guidelines,
- and a variety of useful resources and suggestions aimed at weight management facilitators
Participants in your THINK LIGHT! program each receive unlimited access to the THINK LIGHT! Online Program (retail price: $14.95/volume discounts available) featuring an 8-week “flexible” eating plan with daily menu ideas, recipes and weekly grocery lists all printable either by day or by week. The eating plan offers a frequent, small meal pattern with 3 calorie levels to choose from: 1500, 1800 or 2,200 calories/day. All 3 levels feature a diet with healthy fats (~30% total calories) and and low-glycemic (“slow”) carbohydrate (~50%). The eating plan also provides moderate levels of protein (22%) and is high in fiber (>25 grams).
Including with the THINK LIGHT! Online Program is the 8-week THINK LIGHT! Support & Education Program. The program includes twice-weekly emails.
Volume discounts on all THINK LIGHT! participant materials are available to organizations interested in offering THINK LIGHT! to their members, patients or employees. Call 800-869-6393 for pricing information.
