Naturally Slim® Summer Session

Sign up between June 10 - 21
Program starts July 8

Losing weight and feeling your best doesn't have to mean giving up your favorite foods.

Ever wonder how some people can eat all their favorite foods and not gain weight? Naturally Slim® is an online program that will teach you how. And here's a hint: it doesn't include starving, counting calories or spending hours prepping "approved" foods.

Naturally Slim is a 10-week, online program based on Eatology™, the study of when, why and how we eat. Unlike diets, which rely on your willpower and "eat this, not that" advice, Naturally Slim teaches you simple, repeatable skills to help you lose weight and keep it off in the real world, without giving up the foods you love.

Apply between June 10 - 21, 2019.

The Naturally Slim program starts July 8, 2019 and is available to all UT SELECT and UT CONNECT Medical Plan members age 18 and above, including employees, retirees, spouses and dependents who have not participated in the last 12 months.
