Healthy Balance

Developed by professionals, this program is based on three basic ideas for success: healthy eating, daily habits, and getting active. Kaiser Permanente medical and weight loss professionals work with you to help achieve your goals, while other program members will help cheer you on.

  • Programs are offered weekly. Start when you are ready.
  • Learn and practice new ways to help you lose weight and feel great!
  • Attend 16 weekly group sessions and get support to help you achieve your goals.
  • Receive monthly personal phone coaching to boost long-term success.
  • Available at no cost to most Kaiser Permanente members.1

Losing just 5 to 10% of your body weight (10 to 20 pounds for someone who weighs 200 pounds) can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.2

“Great program! It gave me the motivation and tools I needed to get started on my weight loss journey. I’ve lost 14 pounds so far and feel 100% better.”3 — Lynnette G., Orange County
