Begin™ Healthy Lifestyle and Weight Management Program

This healthy lifestyle program emphasizes eating for good health, weight loss and being physically active. Begin™ is not a “diet”- Begin™ is a plan to help with lifelong wellness.

Don’t wait for chronic diseases to sneak up on you. Health screenings with biometrics and measurements are included with most Begin™ programs at start and finish. Your Hy-Vee dietitian will review your cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar, body fat and body mass index values with you.

Many Begin™ participants following this healthy lifestyle plan:

  • lower blood pressure
  • lower cholesterol or triglycerides
  • lower blood sugar levels
  • become more active
  • develop healthier eating habits

*Individual results may vary

Begin™ is available on an individual or group basis. Group sessions can be held in-store or out in the community. Begin™ can also be held at your business as part of an employee wellness program. Packages include nutrition education, weekly weigh-ins, personal goal setting and support with a Registered Dietitian.

During BEGIN™ sessions you will learn:

  • How to control hunger
  • How to move more
  • What healthy portions look like
  • How to prepare healthy foods
  • How to select healthy foods, aisle by aisle
