Starting A Profitable Medical Weight Management Practice

Adding a medical weight loss program to your practice can be daunting. use our tried & tested field guide to help you launch successfully, resources to help you launch a successful medical weigh loss program more quickly & easily, your guide to starting a profitable medical weight loss clinic, explore this easy-to-follow guide from bottom-line factors to trends affecting the industry....

It’s no secret that obesity is on the rise, and everywhere you look, people are looking for new and effective ways to lose those pounds.

Fad diets saturate the internet, weight loss books line the shelves of the local libraries and book stores, and nutritional supplements offer supposed fast and “easy” solutions to your woes.

Providing advice and coaching people on how to lose weight has now become a multi-billion-dollar industry. You can capitalize on this lucractive industry by starting your own medical weight loss program .

There are weight loss clinic/program franchises out there and available for purchase, as well as strategies on how to go the small business route instead of purchasing a franchise.

However, before you choose which business option is right for you, there are some key factors that you should consider.

First of all, you will need to decide whether an independent weight loss clinic or a  franchise  option is the right fit for you.

If you are currently practicing medicine in some capacity, more often than not, an independent weight loss clinic is the right option for you.

Anyone already practicing medicine in some capacity will likely find more success extending their practice with an independent option for their patients. 

The franchise option is often the choice for those who are not medical doctors, but instead maybe professionals, nurses or other healthcare professionals.

Whether you choose to add medically supervised weight loss to your existing practice , or the purchase of a weight loss franchise, there are pros and cons involved in each. 

Overall, with both options, you need to be familiar with selling your idea and or/ regime to potential customers and give customer satisfaction in order to see a return on your investment.

Make more and work less by growing a profitable aesthetics practice.

Are Weight Loss Clinics Profitable?

The short answer is… Yes! There are many profitable medical weight loss clinics operating around the country.

Like any business, a medical weight loss clinic can absolutely be profitable – so long as you have set yourself up with a winning formula and a medical weight loss program that really works.

You’ll need a good business model, marketing plan and patient retention strategy as well as a system for tracking your revenue and expenses to make sure you’re profitable.

With the right package to offer your patients, you could see anywhere from $100,000-$900,000/year (10-80 patients/month).

Pros of Extending Onto Your Current Practice

  • No relocation to a franchise-operating facility
  • Already existing relationships with your patients that would facilitate the new treatments
  • No franchise start-up fees
  • Freedom to run your business as you see fit, as opposed to following strict franchise parameters

Cons of Extending Onto Your Current Practice

  • Marketing support not as comprehensive as with a franchise (Social Media posting is very important in a practice but it is very time-consuming therefore you will want to invest in a Social Media service to post to your platforms.
  • Outsourcing your Social Media Marketing will help with your practice engagement and is a great ROI.)
  • Branding not as comprehensive or integrated as with a franchise
  • Weaker support system

Pros of Purchasing a Franchise

  • Franchises offer support systems and teams that are available to support you and your business on a daily basis
  • Franchises offer comprehensive training and operations guidelines
  • Full advertising and marketing support
  • Brand recognition

Cons of Purchasing a Franchise

  • Can be costly with start-up fees and there can be royalty fees payable to the franchisee
  • You’ll have less decision making freedom, as most franchises have to operate under certain parameters of the overall business
  • Possibility of poor franchise choice, meaning ultimate failure of the business
  • Be aware of failure! New franchises have a high failure rate, just like new businesses. Many weight loss franchises have gone out of business, including Thinique , which left 100’s of franchise owners with nothing!

Overall, it is important to observe all factors in order to carefully determine which type of business is the best match for you and your skills. 

Once you have decided which option is the right fit, you can get started and begin helping your patients make their weight loss dreams a reality!

Whether you decided to go independently by adding weight loss to an existing practice, starting a stand-alone medically supervised weight loss clinic, or to purchase a franchise, you’re probably wondering what’s next.

This is why we created the Clean Start Weight Loss® program . 

It has a turnkey system and all of the resources so you can easily implement it into your current practice. And it doesn’t have any franchise fees ! 

One thing that is critical, is to ensure you have a solid program to offer your patients. 

The IAPAM’s Clean Start Weight Loss  program has treated over 80,000 patients with a safe, reliable weight loss program. 

The creator of the program, IAPAM Executive-Director Jeff Russell, says “for the most part physicians don’t need a franchise model, all they need is an easy to follow medically supervised weight loss  program to offer their patients. 

Which is the reason we created the Clean Start Weight Loss program, with physicians and healthcare prescribers in mind!”

How to Market the Weight Loss Program

Many of you are likely already in the health care profession, maybe as a physician, PA, NP, RN or as a fitness and nutrition specialist.  

Either way, you are now in the business of selling a product and/or service to a customer, and in order to be successful, you need to provide the best quality and experience to your patients as possible so that they continue to come back to your practice!

It is important to first identify how you will advertise your new weight loss program so you can get those prospective patients in the door. 

This may be new for physicians and healthcare providers, but market research is key. 

If you are a franchisee, these parameters are likely already laid out for you. In either case, consider the following marketing materials:

If you are a current physician (or healthcare provider) that is extending onto your practice:

  • Signage or posters throughout your office/neighborhood to advertise your new services
  • Mail and email to current customers
  • Verbal discussion with current patients
  • An online marketing plan
  • All marketing materials are usually provided to you through the franchise start-up fees
  • Existing franchise brand recognition should help you reach prospective clients

It can be overwhelming making all of these marketing decisions!  The IAPAM has a program that gets rid of the guesswork and brings you targeted patients from people who are searching for your services on Google.

Next, it is important to examine what weight loss programs you will offer to your patients, and how that will set you apart from the competition. 

It is important to be able to determine the proper diet program for your clientele to ensure customer satisfaction and a return on your investment. 

You want to only offer a program that has successfully treated 1,000’s of patients. Some ideas of what to offer may include:

  • Several differing weight loss programs , such as low carb, medically supervised hormone injections, low fat, etc.
  • A medical evaluation to give you the ability to steer your patients into the appropriate weight loss program. Such evaluations may include a comprehensive medical screening, evaluating the client’s medical history, a blood chemistry analysis, and body fat analysis, to determine the proper diet program
  • One on one support with a medical or healthcare professional during the duration of the program
  • Behavioral guidance to help the client make the lifestyle changes necessary to adhere to the program
  • A maintenance plan for after the client has reached their weight loss goal
  • Food and dietary supplement products, such as nutrition bars, meal replacement shakes, vitamin and mineral supplements, and even thermogenic supplements

All of these criteria, as well as a solid understanding of your clientele, and a realistic business plan  should set you up for success in this profitable industry. 

Once your systems are in place, it’s up to you to create the most successful business possible! Whether you are supported through a franchise or independently going at it on your own, people are always looking to be healthier and thinner, so you can’t lose!

Why You Should Train with the IAPAM

You have limited time and training dollars and should choose a program that is going to give you the most value and return for your investment.

How to create a strong business plan for your nutrition practice

How to create a strong business plan for your nutrition practice

Running a nutrition business can seem daunting at first, but with a strong business plan, proper planning and goals, you can turn it into a huge success. Keep reading to learn more about how setting goals can take you to the next level.

Whether you’re new to private practice or a veteran superstar, it’s important to have goals that you’re striving towards.  Setting goals is a great way to establish both long-term vision and short-term motivation  and helps you to organize your time, energy, and resources so you can make the most out of your business. Moreover, setting goals means that you can dream big and push yourself to achieve everything you want in your nutrition business.

However, if you don’t have a goal, it’s easy for your efforts to become disjointed. It can also be difficult to reach those goals if you don’t have a plan on how to achieve them.  But how can you make your goals a reality if you don’t know where to start?

Before mapping out your goals, you need to spend quality time outlining your business strategy and have a clear understanding of what you want to achieve and how you will do it.  A business strategy will not only ensure that your goals are in line with your mission, but it can also help you boost revenue, increase future work opportunities and stand out from the competition.

Setting goals and writing business plans can be daunting tasks, so if you feel overwhelmed, know that you’re not alone! That’s why we are sharing some of our best tips and tricks for taking your nutrition business to the next level.  From how to set goals to creating a business plan, we will help you establish a roadmap that can lead you in the right direction.

Why is a business plan important?

Regardless of your niche, having a business plan will help articulate a strategy for your business. This will also provide insight on having a realistic timeline, what resources are required, and if you need to hire some extra help.

Additionally,  you should indicate objectives that will help your business prosper.  While this process is a lot of work, it’s worthwhile in the end if you want to stay on track.

TIP: While a business plan is usually created before a launch, you can do this at any stage.

What to include in your business plan

A business plan should outline all of the objectives that you set for your nutrition business, as well as some concrete steps on how you plan to meet those goals.  Whether you’re just starting out or have been in business for a while, it’s important to have a plan to keep you on track.

Here are some ideas for what you can include in your business plan:

  • Establish a timeline. Develop a realistic timeline for your business launch and subsequent growth.
  • Have an action plan.  Lay out different action plans, goals, and objectives for each timeline you establish, and map out specific steps of how you plan to get to the next level. Make sure these are realistic and achievable.
  • Identify your niche.  Do research to find out who your target audience is. You don’t want to be too broad, nor do you want to be too specific with what you offer.
  • Create a mission statement. Your mission statement is a summary of the aims and values of your business and should include what you stand for, any goals you have, who you serve, and what you provide.
  • Keep track of everything.  Track all of your metrics to see how your business is expanding. This will be helpful to show future investors, as well as help you monitor growth over time.

Be sure to take your time when creating this, as a well-thought-out plan will attract others to invest, work for you, or support your business on its journey to success.  Moreover, it can keep you organized and on track to meet your goals.

Why should you set goals?

When you set goals, it helps you stay on track so you can make the most out of your business. Moreover,  it provides you with long-term vision and short-term motivation,  which allows you to dream big and push yourself to achieve everything you want in your nutrition business.

Setting goals also allows you to track your progress in a measured way.  It can be easy to get discouraged if you don’t “feel” that you’re seeing results, but when you step back and take a look at what you’ve achieved, it can be the burst of energy that you need to keep moving forward. However, this is only possible if you’ve been keeping track of your progress and are actively working towards that goal.

How to set realistic goals

We can all agree that setting goals is important for any business, but can you have too much of a good thing?

Goals that are lofty and unattainable will make you feel discouraged and can negatively affect your mindset, motivation level, and timeframe. Conversely, having realistic and manageable goals can help you identify what you want and what you are able to achieve.

Setting (and achieving) realistic goals helps maximize your time, boosts your self-esteem, and enhances motivation.  But, how can you create goals that will increase your chance of success? Here are some ways to set realistic goals:

Write it down.  While it may sound simple, the act of writing your goals down is the first step toward achieving them.

Don’t be scared to pivot.  Goals are never set in stone! Always re-assess them and adjust if necessary.

Identify milestones.  Determine certain milestones that you wish to achieve, and how you want to get there.

Share your goals.  Whether it’s with friends or family, sharing your goals can help you stay accountable. It also provides a support group, which is essential for success.

Think SMART.  Identify realistic goals with the acronym SMART, which stands for  S pecific  M easurable  A ttainable  R elevant  T ime-bound. These are all things to consider when creating goals for your business.

Using goals to boost your nutrition business

Wondering how you can take your goals and translate them into a thriving nutrition business? Here are some ideas of how you can take your business to the next level.

Note: You can implement realistic goal setting with each of these ideas to fit your business plan.

1. Scope out the competition.  No matter how original and unique your business plan is, you are always going to face some type of competition. So, what can you do to stand out? Sort through the market and determine who your competition is, as well as identify their strengths and weaknesses. This will give you a good idea of what works (and what doesn’t work) in the current market, as well as noticing any gaps and how you can fill them.

2. Implement marketing strategies.  Marketing may not be your strong suit, but there are many resources online to help you along the way. From social media tools to targeted ad campaigns and lead magnets, there is a plethora of information that’s tailored to help nutrition professionals with marketing. Additionally, you can join Facebook groups, ask on forums, or ask other dietitians in the industry for advice.

Tip: Nutrium has built-in marketing tools to make this easier for you!

3. Really sell YOUR services.  This is your time to shine! The ultimate goal of marketing is to show potential clients how your services will benefit them, so come up with some irresistible ways to entice people. Whether that’s ads, creative copy, free downloads, or video content, there are many ways to get people excited about the services you offer.

4. Assemble your team.  There are many moving parts when it comes to creating a successful nutrition business, and you may not be able to do it all yourself. Since there is no “I” in team, you may want to consider diversifying the workload to set yourself up for long-term success.

Creating Your Nutrition Business Plan (Free Template)

  • Facebook Messenger

A nutrition business plan is designed to act as a guide for the development and day to day running of your company. It also allows you to paint a clear picture of the business for potential investors, employees, and other interested parties.

With that being said, it’s important to realise that your business plan doesn’t need to be a 150-page detailed report of how your nutrition business will fit into the industry.

It’s about creating a professional representation of your business that you can follow on your journey from “nutrition business idea” to “nutrition business success”.

Keep reading to learn more…

Do you NEED a business plan?

The short answer is yes…

A nutrition business will have a lot of moving parts. You’ll be expected to map out a specific journey for your business that you can follow as you get started and grow.

Writing out your ideas and organising them into a plan also gives you the power to assess and visualise your nutrition business at a higher level. It can be easy to get off course as you jump into the details. However, a good business plan will help you stay on track and centre your goals.

What goes into your business plan?

There are two primary types of business plans outlined by the Small Business Administration: Traditional and Lean.

A traditional business plan will include more detail and will need to cover at the minimum:

  • An executive summary
  • Your business structure
  • Your mission and values
  • Market/competitor analysis
  • Marketing plan

A lean business plan has much less information and is generally used for those who are comfortable starting quickly and addressing details on the fly. If you plan on seeking funding or presenting your business idea to other professionals, a traditional plan is a better option.

While there are some specific guidelines for your nutrition business plan, you can customise it to meet your needs!

How to use your nutrition business plan…

Your nutrition business plan is there for you whenever you feel overwhelmed or start to lose sight of your destination.

The information included in the plan will help you stay on track and break the process of starting your business into simpler, easier to manage steps.

It will also give you a way to entice potential investors and partners. Having a detailed nutrition business plan helps them to assess risk and decide whether your idea is one that’s financially positive for them.

Your nutrition business plan will ensure that everyone (employees, volunteers, or partners) adheres to the same set of core values. Businesses thrive when everyone is rowing in the same direction!

Your plan is the blueprint for the nutrition business you’re building.

Should you change your business plan?

It’s important that you understand that this is also a fluid document that needs to evolve and change as you learn more about your business.

While changes should be carefully considered prior to implementation, your business plan isn’t set in stone. Staying open to tweaks and improvements will allow you to discover, assess, and apply new ideas as you learn more about the nutrition industry…

Especially when it comes to developing your multi-service practice .

You may discover that your packages could be expanded to better express your areas of expertise. Or you may need to simplify some of your offerings to keep your price structure easy for clients. You’ll learn as you go and will need to amend your nutrition business plan accordingly.

Weight Loss Clinic

Startup Costs: $50,000 - $100,000 Franchises Available? No Online Operation? No

Starting your own weight loss clinic may be just the type of new business venture that you've been looking for. A recent U.S. government survey indicated that 50 percent of American adults felt their weight was too high and that 80 percent of the respondents intended to start a diet or fitness program within the next six months to correct their weight problem. This survey fact alone is reason enough to start a weight loss clinic. There are two options available to you in terms of business location for a weight loss clinic. The first option for establishing the business would be a retail location where customers come to you, and the second option would be private, in-home consultation where you go to the customer. The first option would require more startup capital. However, the probability of generating larger revenues and profits is greater in the long run for a weight loss clinic operating from a fixed location, especially once the business is established. The second and less capital-intensive option is a great way to provide your customers with a personalized service and could easily generate an income in the range of $40 to $50 per hour. The largest requirement for starting a weight loss clinic is to be a certified dietitian, or at least have one on staff.

The Guide provides an outlook of medical vs. competing commercial programs, and how they were affected by the pandemic. It details existing medical weight loss programs by MDs, hospitals and clinics, their business models, fees, and features, and examines programs by drugstore chain healthcare mini-clinics.

The Guide provides operating metrics: Average revenues per program, a typical income statement of expenses and profits, plus start-up costs. Findings of interviews with top managements at leading companies. Discussions and advice for: staffing, center design, IT requirements, counselors and Dietitians, marketing, websites, patient financing, creating meal plans, using Rx diet drugs, supplements and meal replacements, establishing your brand, why some diet companies fail, and case studies of successful medical weight loss programs.

How to Start a Nutritionist Business

A nutritionist business helps community members live in the healthiest manner possible. Nutritionist business owners analyze clients' dietary intake and biology in order to determine the types of food and beverages that can improve their physical and mental health. These businesses are vital to the health of the community as they help countless individuals combat obesity, build muscle, and live as healthy a lifestyle as possible.

We have put together this simple guide to starting your nutritionist business. These steps will ensure that your new business is well planned out, registered properly and legally compliant.

Exploring your options? Check out other small business ideas .

STEP 1: Plan your business

A clear plan is essential for success as an entrepreneur. It will help you map out the specifics of your business and discover some unknowns. A few important topics to consider are:

What will you name your business?

  • What are the startup and ongoing costs?
  • Who is your target market?

How much can you charge customers?

Luckily we have done a lot of this research for you.

Choosing the right name is important and challenging. If you don’t already have a name in mind, visit our How to Name a Business guide or get help brainstorming a name with our Nutritionist Business Name Generator

If you operate a sole proprietorship , you might want to operate under a business name other than your own name. Visit our DBA guide to learn more.

When registering a business name , we recommend researching your business name by checking:

  • Your state's business records
  • Federal and state trademark records
  • Social media platforms
  • Web domain availability .

It's very important to secure your domain name before someone else does.

Want some help naming your nutritionist business?

Business name generator, what are the costs involved in opening a nutritionist business.

The business requires an office. However, it is possible to use a space of your home as the office. You will need a website, a phone to field the calls of prospective clients, a computer, a high-speed internet connection, and a printer. These are the bare bones costs to open a minimalist nutritionist business. You can add more tools as you gain clients and the business becomes more profitable.

What are the ongoing expenses for a nutritionist business?

This business requires an office, high-speed internet, computers, printers, office supplies, insurance, employees and marketing. Budget $500 to $1,500 per month for office rent. Utilities and high-speed internet will cost $100 to $200 per month. Budget in at least $50 to $100 each month for office supplies. Marketing costs differ based on your preference for inbound or outbound marketing. In general, you should plan on spending $100 to $500 per month on marketing efforts. A receptionist/scheduler will earn between $8 and $12 per hour. A marketing expert, office manager and accountant will command a yearly salary in the range of $30,000 to $50,000. If you are busy enough to hire nutritionists rather than provide all of the nutritional counseling on your own, plan on paying a salary of $40,000 to $60,000 for a nutritionist's services.

Who is the target market?

The ideal client is an individual who desperately needs the assistance of a nutritionist. This line of business is ideal for those who are looking to make a meaningful improvement in the lives of community members while simultaneously making money. An individual who is overweight, unable to figure out the proper foods/drinks to consume, and unsure about the nuances of his body chemistry will find nutrition counseling to be especially beneficial. Furthermore, such an individual is likely out of shape and will require the assistance of a nutritionist for weeks, months, and possibly years to come. This style of long-term client has more potential to enhance the bottom line than a relatively healthy individual who requires short-term nutritional counseling. In addition, working these long-term clients will be rewarding as you will be able to see how your advice and training helps them transform in to a happy, healthy, active human being.

How does a nutritionist business make money?

This business charges clients for analysis of their body chemistry and dietary intake and for advice pertaining to the specific foods and drinks that are optimal for health.

You can charge clients between $30 and $150 per session.

How much profit can a nutritionist business make?

The profit for this type of business hinges on the number of clients, the location and the number of competitors. A nutritionist business can make anywhere from $20,000 to six figures per year. Expand the business to multiple locations and cities and the profit margin can soar toward seven figures per year.

How can you make your business more profitable?

Consider providing nutritionist services online through video chats. You can obtain a “finder's fee” for referring clients to other health professionals like personal trainers. It is also possible to provide nutritionist services while moonlighting at nursing homes, hospitals and outpatient centers. Consider holding group sessions with those who seek your services as well as group sessions for local companies that invest in health and wellness initiatives.

STEP 2: Form a legal entity

The most common business structure types are the sole proprietorship , partnership , limited liability company (LLC) , and corporation .

Establishing a legal business entity such as an LLC or corporation protects you from being held personally liable if your nutritionist business is sued.

Form Your LLC

Read our Guide to Form Your Own LLC

Have a Professional Service Form your LLC for You

Two such reliable services:

You can form an LLC yourself and pay only the minimal state LLC costs or hire one of the Best LLC Services for a small, additional fee.

Recommended: You will need to elect a registered agent for your LLC. LLC formation packages usually include a free year of registered agent services . You can choose to hire a registered agent or act as your own.

STEP 3: Register for taxes

You will need to register for a variety of state and federal taxes before you can open for business.

In order to register for taxes you will need to apply for an EIN. It's really easy and free!

You can acquire your EIN through the IRS website . If you would like to learn more about EINs, read our article, What is an EIN?

There are specific state taxes that might apply to your business. Learn more about state sales tax and franchise taxes in our state sales tax guides.

STEP 4: Open a business bank account & credit card

Using dedicated business banking and credit accounts is essential for personal asset protection.

When your personal and business accounts are mixed, your personal assets (your home, car, and other valuables) are at risk in the event your business is sued. In business law, this is referred to as piercing your corporate veil .

Open a business bank account

Besides being a requirement when applying for business loans, opening a business bank account:

  • Separates your personal assets from your company's assets, which is necessary for personal asset protection.
  • Makes accounting and tax filing easier.

Recommended: Read our Best Banks for Small Business review to find the best national bank or credit union.

Get a business credit card

Getting a business credit card helps you:

  • Separate personal and business expenses by putting your business' expenses all in one place.
  • Build your company's credit history , which can be useful to raise money later on.

Recommended: Apply for an easy approval business credit card from BILL and build your business credit quickly.

STEP 5: Set up business accounting

Recording your various expenses and sources of income is critical to understanding the financial performance of your business. Keeping accurate and detailed accounts also greatly simplifies your annual tax filing.

Make LLC accounting easy with our LLC Expenses Cheat Sheet.

STEP 6: Obtain necessary permits and licenses

Failure to acquire necessary permits and licenses can result in hefty fines, or even cause your business to be shut down.

State & Local Business Licensing Requirements

Certain state permits and licenses may be needed to operate a nutritionist business. Learn more about licensing requirements in your state by visiting SBA’s reference to state licenses and permits .

Most businesses are required to collect sales tax on the goods or services they provide. To learn more about how sales tax will affect your business, read our article, Sales Tax for Small Businesses .

Services Contract

If you offer your clients the opportunity to sign up for long term guidance, it is a good idea to have them sign service contracts. This contract should cover the terms of service such as the number of counseling sessions for which the client signed up and how much they agreed to pay for each session. Laying out such terms in a services contract will minimize the risk of legal disputes with clients. 

STEP 7: Get business insurance

Just as with licenses and permits, your business needs insurance in order to operate safely and lawfully. Business Insurance protects your company’s financial wellbeing in the event of a covered loss.

There are several types of insurance policies created for different types of businesses with different risks. If you’re unsure of the types of risks that your business may face, begin with General Liability Insurance . This is the most common coverage that small businesses need, so it’s a great place to start for your business.

Another notable insurance policy that many businesses need is Workers’ Compensation Insurance . If your business will have employees, it’s a good chance that your state will require you to carry Workers' Compensation Coverage.

FInd out what types of insurance your Nutritionist Business needs and how much it will cost you by reading our guide Business Insurance for Nutritionist Business.

STEP 8: Define your brand

Your brand is what your company stands for, as well as how your business is perceived by the public. A strong brand will help your business stand out from competitors.

If you aren't feeling confident about designing your small business logo, then check out our Design Guides for Beginners , we'll give you helpful tips and advice for creating the best unique logo for your business.

Recommended : Get a logo using Truic's free logo Generator no email or sign up required, or use a Premium Logo Maker .

If you already have a logo, you can also add it to a QR code with our Free QR Code Generator . Choose from 13 QR code types to create a code for your business cards and publications, or to help spread awareness for your new website.

How to promote & market a nutritionist business

The best way to promote this type of business is to engage in conversations with members of the community. Pass out your business card to people you meet. Build a highly polished website that touts the merits of consulting with a nutritionist and shows examples of client success stories. Type up a weekly or monthly newsletter and drop it off at local businesses, libraries, and other facilities that welcome such materials. Make sure this free newsletter features your nutritionist business's name, logo, website address, and contact information.

How to keep customers coming back

One of the best ways to recruit customers is to boost your online presence. Aside from building a nice-looking website that is easy to use, you should also enhance your social media, blog and other online content for search engines. Use keywords and key phrases your target clients are likely to search for. Be sure to add local identifiers such as your town name, local streets, your zip code and even the names of neighborhoods by your business to help locals find your business when conducting online searches.

STEP 9: Create your business website

After defining your brand and creating your logo the next step is to create a website for your business .

While creating a website is an essential step, some may fear that it’s out of their reach because they don’t have any website-building experience. While this may have been a reasonable fear back in 2015, web technology has seen huge advancements in the past few years that makes the lives of small business owners much simpler.

Here are the main reasons why you shouldn’t delay building your website:

  • All legitimate businesses have websites - full stop. The size or industry of your business does not matter when it comes to getting your business online.
  • Social media accounts like Facebook pages or LinkedIn business profiles are not a replacement for a business website that you own.
  • Website builder tools like the GoDaddy Website Builder have made creating a basic website extremely simple. You don’t need to hire a web developer or designer to create a website that you can be proud of.

Recommended : Get started today using our recommended website builder or check out our review of the Best Website Builders .

Other popular website builders are: WordPress , WIX , Weebly , Squarespace , and Shopify .

STEP 10: Set up your business phone system

Getting a phone set up for your business is one of the best ways to help keep your personal life and business life separate and private. That’s not the only benefit; it also helps you make your business more automated, gives your business legitimacy, and makes it easier for potential customers to find and contact you.

There are many services available to entrepreneurs who want to set up a business phone system. We’ve reviewed the top companies and rated them based on price, features, and ease of use. Check out our review of the Best Business Phone Systems 2023 to find the best phone service for your small business.

Entrepreneurship Quiz

What happens during a typical day at a nutritionist business?

The typical nutritionist business owner enjoys a diverse workday. This professional meets with patients in-person or through a virtual means such as Skype or webcam chats. Aside from counseling patients in regard to specific food and beverages to consume, nutritionist business owners also stay abreast of developments and findings in nutrition, physical fitness, and overall health. They play an important role in marketing the business, recruiting new clients, managing the business's finances and delegating work to support staff.

What are some skills and experiences that will help you build a successful nutritionist business?

You should have an in-depth understanding of human biology, nutrition, and wellness. Your knowledge regarding body chemistry and the nutritional qualities of foods and beverages will be put to the test. You should also have excellent people skills as you will be required to interact with clients on a daily basis. Furthermore, you should be altruistic and motivated by the opportunity to improve others' quality of life. Launching a nutritionist business is an excellent opportunity to improve the health of people in your community, reduce society's medical costs, and help lengthen lifespan.

What is the growth potential for a nutritionist business?

It is possible to start out with a single client, gradually add clients in the ensuing months, and build a massive client roster that numbers in the dozens.

What are some insider tips for jump starting a nutritionist business?

This business won't work unless you are genuinely interested in improving the lives of those in your community. People respond positively to nutritionists who are sincere about lending a helping hand. Try your hardest to help people consume healthy foods and drinks for their specific body chemistry, lose weight, amass muscle, and enjoy a healthy lifestyle. Your business won't go anywhere unless you socialize with people in the community. Interact with as many people as possible, let them know you own a nutritionist business, and express your desire to transform lives. Be sure to obtain the proper training, licensing and certification. Certain states mandate that a nutritionist obtain a license if his services are marketed as a “licensed dietitian”. Other states merely require registration.

How and when to build a team

It is possible to run a nutritionist business by yourself when it is in its infancy. You can answer the phone, schedule clients and provide nutrition consulting services on your own. However, a team will be necessary as the business grows. You must add a receptionist to answer the phone and schedule nutrition counseling sessions. If you add enough clients, you can bring on nutritionists to handle the counseling while you oversee the business. If the company becomes large enough, you will also have to add a marketing professional, an accountant and possibly an office manager.

Have you been thinking about starting a weightloss business of your own ? With the emphasis on health and wellness these days, there's never been a better time to help fight one of the country's leading epidemics – obesity.

A good reason to consider a franchise opportunity when you decide to open a weightloss business is you become part of a $1 billion industry in the U.S. Weight loss counseling, menu, and exercise planning, and food supplements are at the heart of franchise business models for top weight loss companies like Medi-Weightloss®.

Best Weight Loss Companies Help Tip the Scale Toward a Healthy Lifestyle

More than 42% of the U.S. population is obese . That's one reason why obesity is considered an epidemic. It's also a serious and costly disease.

graph changes in health indicators after weightloss

You can change people's lives and reach your own career goals by starting a weightloss business like Medi-Weightloss.

Here are five steps to take to open a weightloss business in your existing medical practice or as a stand-alone clinic in your community.

Step 1. Do your research on top weight loss companies.

When you research brands, find out what makes them tick. Who is the target customer? What are the revenue streams? How will your business be different from others in the industry?

Top weight loss businesses in the franchise or chain category posted a hefty 18% increase in revenues in 2018. They are on pace to continue growth trends and meet demand from consumers looking for a way to lose weight and keep it off.

Nonsurgical weight loss franchise companies make their money from product sales of everything from meal replacements, like shakes and nutrition bars, to medications. They also have fee-based services for weight management counseling and menu plans.

Step 2. Make a plan to learn how to start a weightloss business.

Your business plan is like a road map. It identifies the starting point on your journey and keeps you focused on what you want to achieve. A clearly defined plan also spells out how you intend to reach your goals, the resources you must have, and the tactics to overcome barriers along the way.

A solid business plan answers these questions:

  • What sets your business apart from the competition?
  • How much does it cost to open and operate your business?
  • Where is your business? Is it a physical location? Virtual? Or both?
  • Who is your customer?
  • How are you going to get people interested in your service?
  • What processes need to be in place to run your business?
  • How do you measure your performance goals to know if you are on the right track?

Learn how to become an Owner

Step 3. Know why you are starting a weightloss business.

This spells out the purpose of your business. Before you open a weightloss business, understand what matters most to you and what keeps you motivated.

Starting a weightloss business is hard work. When you know why you've chosen this path, you can tap into the energy you need to move forward and meet any challenges along the way.

Step 4. Choose a weight loss business model that's right for you.

There are plenty of ways to start a weightloss business. You can buy an existing business, start your own brand, or open a franchise.

The franchise route gives you a chance to become part of a brand with an established reputation, instead of starting from scratch. You can tap into a support system with folks who know what it takes to launch a business and run it efficiently.

When you open a weightloss business that is part of a franchise system, you can take advantage of a built-in support system to guide you on how to start a weightloss business. You can learn from business-minded folks who understand what is needed to grow your business.

You become your own boss when you invest in a franchised weight loss business. That means you have control over your potential to generate income to how you change lives through the right customer experience.

An investment in a weight loss franchise like Medi-Weightloss sets you up to change lives, including your own. You have access to physician-approved, evidence-based programs and products that help individuals lose weight and keep it off.

Franchise owners like you join a team of entrepreneurs who realized their career path could be different and rewarding, with the support of one of the top weight loss companies in the U.S. Medi-Weightloss franchise clinics have helped patients lose more than 7.7 million pounds since the company started in 2005.

Step 5. Align your values with one of the biggest weight loss companies.

You invest more than money when you open a weightloss business like Medi-Weightloss. It's your chance to become part of a brand that's committed to fighting obesity. It's also a way to create lasting, impactful change for individuals, families, and communities.

For most, weight loss is a logical process: restrict food intake and increase exercise. However, human nature often resists this logic, which is why the weight loss business is a multibillion-dollar industry. Your weight loss clinic competes with other clinics in your area, online weight loss product promoters, local doctors and gyms. Your target market chooses between these sources according to what these customers want -- not necessarily what they need.

What the Customer Wants

Growing your weight loss center business involves giving your clients what they want -- an easy, enjoyable way to lose weight. Some want to simply buy your food and supplements. Others need moral support and community, or like the competition of weekly weigh-ins. Consider how you can provide for these customer desires in addition to giving them what you believe they need. Increase revenues from your current customers by adding new products such as aromatherapy, skin care lines and other spa products that your customers would find appealing, and train your staff to cross-sell these items when dealing with clients.

Controlling Attrition

Attrition happens when a client reaches the goal weight and stops using your products and services. It also happens when a client fails to lose weight through your system and quits out of disappointment. Your successful clients are excellent sales reps for your clinic, so it's important to keep them involved and looking good. This is done through maintenance programs and recognition. Create a "Winners Circle" and offer free attendance at weekly meetings combined with discounts on product purchases. These encourage them to use your clinic instead of switching to the services of your competition. For the discouraged drop-outs, try the personal, nurturing touch. Help them return through personal phone consultations and discounts they can't resist. Be more nurturing than sales-oriented. The people who drop out might have done so because they didn't receive enough personal support or didn't like some aspect of your program.

Attracting New Clients

Establish referral partnerships with local doctors, bridal boutiques, gyms and beauty shops. Compensating your referral partners and current clients for referrals also provides them the incentive to get their customers and friends involved in your program. Create a sense of community with a regularly emailed newsletter to your past and current clients. Hold events in your clinic to attract new potential customers. The events can provide weight loss information or deal with other topics of interest such as wedding planning, cosmetics, health, parenting or fitness presented by your referral partners. Also consider a social media campaign, with a business site on Facebook and targeted Facebook ads to augment your website traffic. Social media sites usually have consultants to help you set up a marketing campaign.

Advertising

Ads in local newspapers and fliers reach a large number of people, but an incentive such as a coupon for a free consultation or a discount on products or services makes those ads much more powerful. A booth at a local farmers market can attract health-conscious clients. A booth at a holiday bazaar can sell gift memberships. Use your creativity to put your weight loss clinic in front of as many potential customers as possible, in different venues that each attract a specific group of people you may not be reaching through your other promotional efforts. In nearly every corner of life, there is someone who is thinking about losing weight. Placing your clinic promotions where they can see them is how you bring in new business.

Weight Loss Clinic Business

Opening a weight loss clinic can give you the opportunity to leave the lucrative weight loss industry, become self-employed, and provide valuable services to your community.

Since the organization of a weight loss clinic is juicy business, many people rush into it, even if they have little or no experience in this area. Some buy franchises and try to be absent owners, leaving the running of the clinic to a hired manager; but in most cases, these clinics fail.

Your chances of being successful as a weight loss clinic owner will increase if you have sufficient experience in physical education, diet and nutrition or related disciplines, or if you are a doctor, nurse, physiotherapist, or the like. healthcare professional. In addition, you must be forward thinking, be an effective leader, be a team player and have good communication skills. With that said, let’s now discuss the steps to start a weight loss clinic.

Weight Loss Clinic Launch – Sample Business Plan Template

1) Write a business plan

Writing a business plan for your weight loss clinic will help you detail the steps you need to take to successfully start and operate your weight loss clinic. The plan will include your business name, your suggested or chosen location, your target market, the competition and how your business will be different from others, your marketing strategy, growth plans, financial performance, and other important information about your business.

In addition to helping you take the right steps at the right time, your business plan will describe your business to investors or lenders if you need third-party financing.

2. Define your program

You have to choose the type of weight loss program that you offer. Are you going to focus on exercise or dietary restrictions? Do you sell weight loss supplements or prepackaged foods ?

By answering these questions, you can understand what your weight loss clinic will understand. If you are selling items of any kind, be sure to apply for a resale tax number; provided that this requirement applies in your state or country.

3. Select a location

A good location is the key to the success of your weight loss clinic, so you need to decide whether you want a seat on the ground floor or a seat on the top floor.

The downstairs space is convenient for your clients, especially if they are discouraged from joining your program if they find they have to climb several stairs to get there. Select this option if your program is not exercise-oriented.

A top-floor seat, on the other hand, will take your customers up several steps, which is a good way to burn those extra calories. If your weight loss clinic is primarily focused on exercise, choose this option because your clients won’t be watching it. Most importantly, you need to create a supportive environment that makes your customers feel good and encourages them to come back.

4. Complete the required documents

Starting a business usually requires registering a business and obtaining all necessary licenses and permits. Therefore, contact the relevant local agencies to perform these steps. If you need help with this aspect, contact an experienced lawyer or business consultant.

5. Promote your weight loss clinic

You need to educate your weight loss clinic in order to attract clients. Create a name and logo for your clinic and place a large sign in front of your clinic. This will inform passers-by about your clinic.

Print brochures and business cards and list the benefits of losing weight or maintaining a healthy weight on your back. Post flyers in places people who want to lose weight often go, such as gyms, doctor’s offices, public pools, and salons. Ask doctors for recommendations. Collect testimonials from your first satisfied customers to use in future ads. And encourage your customers to refer others to your business.

Think about keeping a part-time job after you officially retire, for a number of reasons. Primarily, it will help out a lot in terms of financing your lifestyle. Also, working is a great way to stay active and to keep your mind and body in great health as you get older.

If you don't know where to start saving for retirement, check with your employer. Many employers offer not only a 401k savings plan, but also contribute matching funds. Regardless of how much of your income you should save, save at least the amount to get the full match. Never leave free money on the table.

Try to keep your retirement savings plan in tact for as long as possible. If you drew on it to pay for an extravagant vacation for example, you risk losing a ton of money in interest and could even face penalties. While it would be nice to spoil yourself, you've got to think long-term financing when it comes to retirement!

Rebalance your entire retirement portfolio once a quarter. If you do it to often then you may be falling prey to an over-involvement in minor market swings. You can also end up putting money into huge winners. An investment adviser will be able to help you determine where to put your money.

Learn some interesting hobbies that you can continue when you retire. You will have a lot of time on your hands during your golden years. Hobbies and classes will keep your mind sharp and energy going. Something like art and photography are popular choices because they are not too physically demanding.

When trying to determine how much to save for retirement, first figure out what your ideal annual income in retirement will need to be. That should represent 2 percent of your total retirement portfolio. That will make your portfolio large enough to last a long life expectancy on your part.

Look into what type of health plans you may need. Health tends to get worse over time. As you get older, you can expect your medical costs to increase. Long-term health care plans mean that your physical needs are met even when things go bad.

Never spend your retirement money. Pulling money from your retirement fund not only reduces the amount of money you have for retirement, but it also increases your tax burden. You will also be responsible for early withdrawal penalties, tax liabilities and lose interest from the amount withdrawn from your retirement fund.

Cut back in other areas of life to save more money. Saving money seems impossible when you have very little money left over at the end of the day. Try making small cutbacks in other areas and putting those savings into your retirement plan. You might find that those small dollars make a big difference.

Make certain that you have goals. Setting goals is good for many areas of your life, and it's really a good thing when you want to save money. When you sit down and think about the amount of money that will be necessary later, then you will have better control over how to save it now. Try to have savings plans for the week, month and year.

Plan out your financial life after retirement, but don't forget about the non-financial situations as well. For example, would you like to spend more time with your family? Would you like to sell your home and move into a condo? Would you like to have a truck instead of a car?

If you haven't got as much saved up by 65 as you want, you can consider working part-time to compensate. You could also find a new job which is easier on you physically but keeps you going mentally. It might pay less, but you may find it more enjoyable.

Downsizing is great if you're retired but want to stretch your dollars. Even without a mortgage, there are expenses for keeping a large home like landscaping, electricity, etc. Consider moving to a smaller home, townhouse or condo. Doing so would help you save a considerable amount of money monthly.

Be sure to ask your employer about their pension plan. Though you may not think much about it when you are younger, this will become a big deal when you are older. If you are stuck with a shoddy pension plan, you may find it hard to pay your bills once you are retired.

If you are establishing a retirement savings strategy and you lack financial discipline, it is wise to never have the amount you want set back to ever be in your wallet. Designate a specific percentage of your pretax income to be automatically deposited into an account such as a Roth IRA or a 401(k). The money will be automatically deducted from your paycheck and essentially takes the decision of whether you want to save or spend the money out of your control.

Talk to a financial planner. A financial planner will help you determine how you can go about saving and spending your money without your principal income. You will be able to get a clear look at how much money you really have, and what kind of income you are going to need in the years to come.

The most important thing you can do for retirement is to save as much as possible and start as early as possible. Of course, it's important that you start at all, so any age can be compensated for, but if you can start with your first job you'll end up better off.

Part of Each manager's time is devoted to the presentation of plans or ideas. In this guide we will delve into some detail into developing Presentation Ideas and effective Presentation abilities. The very first step in preparing a presentation is to establish a purpose or an objective. What's to be achieved by the presentation? After this has been determined, essential steps can be taken to support this, and guidelines established to organize it. If the presentation is logically arranged by subject matter at the beginning, it will do much to assure success of the demonstration. Successful presentation skills is made to Give information, give Instruction, sell a plan or thought, or accomplish a mixture of those things. Through words and visual aids, a demonstration performs a support to the gamer. A carefully calibrated demonstration can interpret facts, trends, or data into basic relationships that will influence actions or policy. After the aim of this presentation has been established, the general Form of this demonstration has to be considered. The message should be hauled in as few words and using as few visual aids as required to present a strategy or thought efficiently. A concise, convincing presentation of 10-minutes' duration may accomplish readily the desirable objective - and be economical - than one lasting an hour. To put it differently, the efficacy of the presentation depends more upon the soundness of this message than its own length, the presenter's ability in shipping, or the quality of the visual aids. But too long a presentation, lack of skill in its delivery, and/or poor visual aids could spell catastrophe. Presentation Strategy - Step one to Effective Presentation Skills. After The objective has been established the next step is about the demonstration strategy. The answers to some fundamental questions can help in this process: What are you currently selling? To whom are you promoting it? Against what are you competing?In what environment do you expect the message to be received? What exactly are you selling? Why are you really making the presentation? Take another Look at the objective. Are you promoting a plan of action, a demand for activity, a product, a service, or support for an idea? Pinpoint the reason behind making the demonstration. Express it in as few words as you can. John Witherspoon once explained:"Never rise to speak till you've got something to say, and when you've said it, stop." To whom are you selling it? If you understand your audience, you've got some idea Of its place on the topic. A presentation that is highly successful before one viewer can be a failure before another one. The presentation strategy should be attuned to your viewers. Can the people in the audience make a final choice, or must they take your recommendations to some higher authority? Before the demonstration, know as much as possible about the people in your market - their thought patterns, interests, ability, as well as their emotional needs. Do they prefer a certain type of visual aid, a fracture through the presentation, or coffee services? Is their time limited? Remember, people in the market will have different preferences. C. W. Spalding, put it this way:"People differ. Some thing to the enthusiast and others to the enthusiast." Against what are you competing? When you understand the emotional needs of your Audience, the message could be geared into the listener's standpoint. The advantages to the listener could be targeted. In what environment do you expect the message to be received? You will find a Number of questions which may be increased to determine the environment in which the demonstration will be given. In the final evaluation, the strategy you formulate as a presenter Ought to Be Based upon a knowledge of what you are selling, to whom you are selling it, the obstacles you'll be encountering, and the air where the demonstration will be supplied. Presentation Organization. A successful presentation comprises over Good material and also the most persuasive arguments. It exhibits good organization of subject matter. The strongest and persuasive presenter could fail to have a plan, idea, or advice accepted by the viewer if the message is not organized well. The introduction and conclusion can't be ignored. In the Beginning, the Demonstration should gain the interest of the audience and communicate to the listeners what's to be covered. At the conclusion, the presenter must review the key points of the Presentation and pinpoint the actions to be taken, if any. The body of this presentation, located between the debut and the Conclusion, contains the bulk of the message. It should be introduced to the listener in a meaningful form. An outpouring of plans, thoughts, or advice with no relationship or form will not hold the attention of any audience very long. Organization of this demonstration involves fitting the parts into a coherent Whole. The method is dependent upon the subject matter to be introduced and the strategy to be used. The most familiar form of presentation is most likely the time-sequenced-chronological-approach. The problem-solution pattern is a logical option for many"in- home" presentations. Whenever there's a requirement to compare alternate solutions to a problem, the contrast - contrast approach is a fantastic choice. Within a short demonstration, a cause-effect technique might be used. When the purpose of the demonstration is to clarify or explain the significance or nature of something, the definition technique is suitable. Another type commonly used involves talking the"components" comprising the whole, for example subdivision of an organization, or subsystem for components of a missile. Related to this technique is that the presentation built around systems, and serves qualities-sub-systems of an aircraft, acts of components within an organization. If the material for use doesn't fit into one of the typically used organizing patterns, the presenter should set a pattern of their very own. If one has an outstanding purpose to make in a presentation, it Ought to Be Made normally in the start. This has an edge over"building up" to the major point. In case it"sells" the strategy or thought, the balance of this presentation then entails"nailing down" the plan or idea. Another motive behind leading off with the major point, or points, is that important listeners may be called away before the presenter is finished. If they're, they won't miss the major point. After a plan or an idea has been offered by citing its important benefit, or Advantages the balance of this demonstration should generally be treated as Reinforcement of that idea or plan. The things to be made should be presented In descending order of significance. Bear in Mind, when the main stage fails to Deliver the message, the lower points won't do it! Talking of making sure the Message comes through clearly, I am reminded of this 10-year-old explaining the Plot of"My Fair Lady" to her husband. She explained,"It's About a dirty girl who gets remedial reading."

Appointments at Mayo Clinic

The Mayo Clinic Diet: A weight-loss program for life

The Mayo Clinic Diet is a lifestyle approach to weight loss that can help you maintain a healthy weight for a lifetime.

The Mayo Clinic Diet is a long-term weight management program created by a team of weight-loss experts at Mayo Clinic.

The program has been updated and is designed to help you reshape your lifestyle by adopting healthy new habits and breaking unhealthy old ones. The goal is to make simple, pleasurable changes that will result in a healthy weight that you can maintain for the rest of your life.

Why choose the Mayo Clinic Diet?

The purpose of the Mayo Clinic Diet is to help you lose excess weight and find a healthy way of eating that you can sustain for a lifetime.

It focuses on changing your daily routine by adding and breaking habits that can affect your weight. Simple habits, such as eating more fruits and vegetables, not eating while you watch TV, and moving your body for 30 minutes a day, can help you lose weight.

The Mayo Clinic Diet is based on the latest behavior-change science, which will help you find your inner motivation to lose weight, set achievable goals and learn to handle setbacks.

You might choose to follow the Mayo Clinic Diet because you:

  • Want to follow a program that has been developed by medical professionals
  • Are looking for a diet that fits your food preferences
  • Like the idea of being able to eat unlimited vegetables and fruits
  • Seek expert strategies on how to drop unhealthy lifestyle habits and gain healthy ones
  • Want to improve your health, reduce your health risks and feel great
  • Don't want to eliminate food groups or count calories
  • Want a program you can stick with for life, not a fad or quick fix.
  • Are looking for easy-to-follow advice that will inspire you to eat better and move more

Remember to check with your health care provider before starting any weight-loss program, especially if you have any health conditions.

How does it work?

The Mayo Clinic Diet is the official weight-loss program developed by Mayo Clinic experts. It is based on research and clinical experience.

The program focuses on eating delicious healthy foods and increasing physical activity. It emphasizes that the best way to keep weight off for good is to change your lifestyle and adopt new habits that you enjoy and can stick with. This program can be tailored to your own individual needs, health history and preferred eating style.

The Mayo Clinic Diet has two phases:

  • Lose It! This two-week phase is designed to jump-start your weight loss, so you may lose up to 6 to 10 pounds (2.7 to 4.5 kilograms) in a safe and healthy way. In this phase, you focus on lifestyle habits that are associated with weight. You learn how to add five healthy habits, break five unhealthy habits and adopt another five bonus healthy habits. This phase can help you see some quick results — a psychological boost — and start practicing important habits that you'll carry into the next phase of the diet.
  • Live It! This phase is a lifelong approach to health. In this phase, you learn more about food choices, portion sizes, menu planning, physical activity, exercise and sticking to healthy habits. You may continue to see a steady weight loss of 1 to 2 pounds (0.5 to 1 kilograms) a week until you reach your goal weight. This phase can also help you maintain your goal weight permanently.

To support your weight-loss journey, the Mayo Clinic Diet also makes available electronic tools, such as a food and exercise journal and a weight tracker, to help you stick with the program.

Focus on choosing healthy foods

Mayo Clinic Healthy Weight Pyramid

small business plan for diet clinic

The Mayo Clinic Diet makes healthy eating easy by teaching you how to estimate portion sizes and plan meals. The program doesn't require you to be precise about counting calories. Instead, you'll eat tasty foods that will satisfy you and help you lose weight.

Mayo Clinic experts designed the Mayo Clinic Healthy Weight Pyramid to help you eat foods that are filling but low in calories. Each of the food groups in the pyramid emphasizes health-promoting choices. The pyramid encourages you to eat virtually unlimited amounts of vegetables and fruits because of their beneficial effects on both weight and health.

The main message is simple: Eat most of your food from the groups at the base of the pyramid and less from the top — and move more.

Increase your physical activity

The Mayo Clinic Diet provides practical and realistic ideas for including more physical activity and exercise throughout your day — as well as finding a plan that works for you.

The program recommends getting at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day and even more exercise for further health benefits and weight loss. It provides an exercise plan with easy-to-follow walking and resistance exercises that will help maximize fat loss and boost mental well-being. It also emphasizes moving more throughout the day, such as taking the stairs instead of an elevator.

If you've been inactive or you have a medical condition, talk to your doctor or health care provider before starting a new physical activity program. Most people can begin with five- or 10-minute activity sessions and increase the time gradually.

What's a typical daily menu?

The Mayo Clinic Diet provides a choice of five different eating styles at several calorie levels. Whether you would like to follow the Mayo Clinic Diet meal plan, are vegetarian or prefer the Mediterranean eating style, you will find an abundance of recipes and meals that won't leave you hungry.

Here's a look at a typical daily meal plan at the 1,200-calorie-a-day level from the Mediterranean eating plan:

  • Breakfast: Overnight oats with berries and pear
  • Lunch: Tuscan white bean soup with pesto drizzle
  • Dinner: Sheet-pan roast chicken with broccolini, onion and tomatoes
  • Snack: 1 cup sliced bell peppers and a banana

What about dessert? You can have sweets but no more than 75 calories a day. For practicality, consider thinking of your sweets calories over the course of a week. Have low-fat frozen yogurt or dark chocolate on Monday, and then hold off on any more sweets for a few days.

What are the results?

The Mayo Clinic Diet is designed to help you lose up to 6 to 10 pounds (2.7 to 4.5 kilograms) during the initial two-week phase.

After that, you transition into the second phase, where you continue to lose 1 to 2 pounds (0.5 to 1 kilograms) a week until you reach your goal weight. By continuing the lifelong habits that you've learned, you can then maintain your goal weight for the rest of your life.

Most people can lose weight on almost any diet plan that restricts calories — at least in the short term. The goal of the Mayo Clinic Diet is to help you keep weight off permanently by making smarter food choices, learning how to manage setbacks and changing your lifestyle.

In general, losing weight by following a healthy, nutritious diet — such as the Mayo Clinic Diet — can reduce your risk of weight-related health problems, such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and sleep apnea.

If you already have any of these conditions, they may be improved dramatically if you lose weight, regardless of the diet plan you follow.

In addition, the healthy habits and kinds of foods recommended on the Mayo Clinic Diet — including lots of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, beans, fish and healthy fats — can further reduce your risk of certain health conditions.

The Mayo Clinic Diet is meant to be positive, practical, sustainable and enjoyable, so you can enjoy a happier, healthier life over the long term.

Are there risks?

The Mayo Clinic Diet is generally safe for most adults. It does encourage unlimited amounts of vegetables and fruits.

For most people, eating lots of fruits and vegetables is a good thing — these foods provide your body with important nutrients and fiber. However, if you aren't used to having fiber in your diet, you may experience minor, temporary changes in digestion, such as intestinal gas, as your body adjusts to this new way of eating.

Also, the natural sugar in fruit does affect your carbohydrate intake — especially if you eat a lot of fruit. This may temporarily raise your blood sugar or certain blood fats. However, this effect is lessened if you are losing weight.

If you have diabetes or any other health conditions or concerns, work with your doctor to adjust the Mayo Clinic Diet for your situation. For example, people with diabetes should aim for more vegetables than fruits, if possible. It's a good idea to snack on vegetables, rather than snacking only on fruit.

US government shutdown: What is it and who would be affected?

Sept 29 (Reuters) - U.S. government services would be disrupted and hundreds of thousands of federal workers would be told not to work if Congress fails to provide funding for the fiscal year starting Oct. 1. Workers deemed essential would remain on the job. Almost all workers would not be paid.

Here is a guide to what would stay open and what would shut down, according to agency shutdown plans :

The 2 million U.S. military personnel would remain at their posts, but roughly half of the Pentagon's 800,000 civilian employees would be furloughed -- ordered not to work.

Contracts awarded before the shutdown would continue, and the Pentagon could place new orders for supplies or services needed to protect national security. Other new contracts, including renewals or extensions, would not be awarded . Payments to defense contractors such as Boeing (BA.N) , Lockheed Martin (LMT.N) and RTX (RTX.N) , formerly known as Raytheon, could be delayed.

The Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration would continue maintaining nuclear weapons.

LAW ENFORCEMENT

Agents at the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and other federal law enforcement agencies would remain on the job , and prison staffers would continue to work.

The Secret Service and the Coast Guard would also continue operations, and most employees would continue to work.

Most of the Federal Trade Commission's consumer-protection workers would be furloughed, as would half of its antitrust employees.

SOCIAL SECURITY, MEDICARE AND OTHER BENEFITS

The Social Security Administration would continue to issue retirement and disability benefits, though the agency might have to delay its announcement of its annual increase in payments.

Payments would likewise continue under the Medicare and Medicaid healthcare programs.

Military veterans' benefits would also continue, according to a 2021 contingency plan.

Nutrition benefits provided to 7 million mothers through the Women, Infants and Children program would be cut within days, according to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.

Food aid through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) would go out as normal for October, but could be affected after that.

NATIONAL PARKS AND NATURAL RESOURCES

National parks, monuments and other sites would be closed to the public, though it will be impossible to keep visitors out of many of them. Rangers would be furloughed and restrooms, help desks and other facilities would be shuttered.

Some states may use their own money to keep parks and other sites open, as happened in the 2018-2019 shutdown.

Wildfire fighting efforts would continue, according to the Agriculture Department's 2020 contingency plan, though timber sales on national forest lands would be curtailed and fewer recreation permits would be issued.

The Smithsonian museums that line the National Mall have enough money on hand to stay open for about a week after a shutdown, as would the National Zoo. After that, they would close to the public, though zoo staffers would continue to care for animals.

BORDERS AND HOMELAND SECURITY

Most Border Patrol and immigration enforcement agents would continue to work, as would most customs officers.

Local governments would not get new aid to shelter migrants.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency would suspend security reviews that help schools, local governments and other institutions defend against ransomware.

FEDERAL COURTS

Federal courts have enough money to stay open until at least Oct. 13 . Activities might be scaled back after that point. The Supreme Court would stay open as well.

Criminal prosecutions, including the two federal cases against former President Donald Trump , would continue. Most civil litigation would be postponed. The government's landmark Google antitrust lawsuit would continue.

Lawmakers would continue to collect paychecks, even as other federal workers do not. Staffers would not get paid, though those deemed essential would be required to work.

TRANSPORTATION

Airport security screeners and air-traffic control workers would be required to work, according to recent contingency plans, though absenteeism could be a problem. Some airports had to suspend operations during a shutdown in 2019 when traffic controllers called in sick.

Training for 1,000 new air-traffic controllers would stop, leaving the system understaffed. The Transportation Security Administration would not be able to hire new airport security screeners ahead of the busy holiday travel season.

Some major infrastructure projects could face delays because environmental reviews and permitting would be disrupted, according to the White House.

FOREIGN AFFAIRS

U.S. embassies and consulates would remain open. Passport and visa processing would continue as long as there were sufficient fees to cover operations. Nonessential official travel, speeches and other events would be curtailed.

Some foreign aid programs could run out of money as well.

Scientific research would be disrupted as agencies like the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation and the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) would furlough most of their workers once they run out of funding.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) would continue to support the International Space Station and track satellites, but 17,000 of its 18,300 employees would be furloughed.

Weather forecasts and fisheries regulation would continue, as would patent and trademark reviews. Tests of new drugs and medical devices would continue.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) would suspend consumer-protection activities, equipment reviews, and licensing of TV and radio stations. It would continue to distribute telecommunications subsidies and its broadband mapping effort.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) would continue to monitor disease outbreaks, though other public health activities could suffer as more than half of the agency's workers would be furloughed.

The National Institutes of Health would furlough most of its staff and delay new clinical trials for medical treatments.

Healthcare services for military veterans and Native Americans would continue.

Most inspections of hazardous waste sites and drinking water and chemical facilities would stop.

Food-safety inspections by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) could be delayed.

FINANCIAL REGULATION

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) would furlough roughly 90% of its 4,600 employees and suspend most activities, leaving only a skeleton staff to respond to emergencies.

Likewise, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) would furlough almost all of its employees and cease most oversight activity.

The Federal Reserve, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency would continue as normal because they are funded by industry fees rather than congressional appropriations.

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), an industry-financed brokerage oversight body, would continue to operate.

The Treasury Department would continue to issue debt and manage the government's cash position.

ECONOMIC DATA

The publication of major U.S. economic data, including employment and inflation reports of critical importance to policymakers and investors, would be suspended .

TAX COLLECTION

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) would stop examining and auditing tax returns and responding to taxpayer queries. Automated tax collection would continue, as would processing of green-energy tax credits under the Inflation Reduction Act. Roughly two-thirds of the agency's 90,000 employees would be furloughed.

DISASTER RESPONSE

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) would be at risk of running out of disaster-relief funds. The agency is already delaying payments to some long-term recovery projects in order to keep money on hand for more immediate relief during the hurricane and wildfire seasons.

Pell Grants and student loans would continue to be paid, but could be disrupted as most Education Department employees would be furloughed, according to the agency's 2021 plan.

A protracted shutdown could "severely curtail" aid to schools, universities and other educational institutions, the department says. It also could delay funds that are due to be awarded later in the year.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers would continue to operate locks, dams and flood control facilities. Most employees would not be furloughed.

According to the White House, 10,000 children from low-income families would lose access to the Head Start preschool program.

SMALL BUSINESS SUPPORT

The Small Business Administration would not be able to issue any new loans, though loans for businesses hurt by natural disasters would continue.

AGRICULTURE

Meat and egg inspections would continue, but some lab services would be disrupted, making it harder to fight animal diseases. Crop insurance would not be affected, but some loan programs would be. Research, conservation and rural development programs would be shut down.

Workplace safety inspections would be limited, and investigations into unfair pay practices would be suspended, according to the White House.

The ability of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to mediate labor disputes would be curtailed because almost all of its 1,200 employees would be furloughed, according to a 2022 plan.

Monthly subsidies for public housing and low-income housing aid would be at risk. The Federal Housing Administration would continue to back insured mortgages, and Ginnie Mae would continue to back the secondary mortgage market. New homebuyers in rural areas would not be able to get loans from the Agriculture Department.

WHITE HOUSE

In the 2018-2019 shutdown, the White House furloughed 1,100 of 1,800 staff in the Executive Office of the President. Some offices, such as the National Security Council, continued at full strength, while others like the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) were scaled back sharply.

White House furloughs could make it harder for Republicans in the House of Representatives to get information for their impeachment investigation of Democratic President Joe Biden.

The U.S. Constitution specifies that the president continues to get paid.

MAIL DELIVERY

The U.S. Postal Service would be unaffected because it does not depend on Congress for funding.
