Naturally Slim gives people a better way to better health, starting with changing their relationship with food. Our digital health program teaches participants simple, repeatable skills to lose weight, move more, sleep better, and stress less. Naturally Slim unites the common goals of companies and individuals—lowering healthcare spend and improving health outcomes.

Without the hefty price tag associated with traditional behavioral coaching, Naturally Slim is the single most cost-effective way to reduce obesity-related disease in populations, helping employers and health plans do the most good for the most people.

We’re different than other weight management solutions on the market because:

Our curriculum is built to deliver long-term results.

·We’ve combined proven psychological techniques with the latest obesity research, user experience (UX) design and consumer marketing methods to deliver clinically proven outcomes (as detailed in several peer-reviewed journals).

·Instead of focusing on macronutrients, prescriptive diets, and calorie counting, we focus on helping participants improve their relationship with food. This approach helps them change their behavior and build habits so they can keep the weight they lose off for good.

·Unlike typical counseling that offers "eat this, not that" advice, our curriculum is based on Eatology™—the study of when, why, and how we eat. We teach simple, repeatable skills that participants can use in the real world to understand and improve their relationship with food.

·Our curriculum addresses more than just food. We take a holistic approach and, over the course of the program, help participants increase their physical activity, handle emotions around food in a positive way, reduce stress, and sleep better.

·Participants are enrolled in the course for a full year, with the first 10 weekly sessions focusing on the core elements of the program.

·To date, we’ve enrolled more than 500,000 participants and have been able to help even the hardest to reach populations by meeting them where they are.

We’re infinitely scalable.

·Because our program is delivered digitally, we’re able to reach geographically dispersed employee/member populations. Participants can access Naturally Slim from any computer, tablet, or mobile device, making it easy for them to participate when it’s convenient for them, wherever they are.

We’re easy to work with.

·Implementation is quick and seamless. Each client is assigned a dedicated Program Success Manager who handles all the heavy lifting to get the program launched in as little as six weeks.

·Naturally Slim can be offered as a covered preventive benefit through many leading health plans and TPAs with program fees seamlessly billed through medical claims.
