SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Scarsdale Medical Group's fall weight-loss program and education sessions will begin in October.
Facilitated by Scarsdale’s Nutrition Center, its team of experts will provide guidance during the weight-loss journey.
The 10-week program will offer participants weekly weigh-ins, food and activity tracking logs, assistance in setting attainable goals and a series of education topics that include strategic snacking tips, dining out without disaster, emotional eating, savvy supermarket shopping and essentials of an effective weight loss plan.
