The global obesity epidemic has been fueled by the changes in what we are eating and drinking and how much and the
frequency at which we consume food products and beverages. The food environments and the foods and beverages that
are readily available and affordable have propelled this epidemic across the globe and impacted people from all walks of life.
The co-morbidities associated with obesity have serious health consequences that negatively impacts quality of life. With
lasting lifestyle changes related to food, drinking and eating, people can reverse the co-morbidities associated with obesity and
reclaim their lives. ConnectWell’s obesity, diabetes and nutrition experts include Robert Lustig, MD UCSF and Luis Rodriguez,
RD, CNSC, UCSF who have extensive experience in treating obese patients and their families. ConnectWell’s Eating for a
Vibrant Program is an evidence-based intensive lifestyle intervention program that engages obese and overweight participants
along with their families in lifestyle habits that drive healthy eating and drinking behaviors. The program cultivates the skill
set to create a food environment that supports healthy lifelong behaviors around food and eating. Eating for a Vibrant Life is a
group-based program and includes: 15 interactive sessions led by a registered dietitian; a proprietary workbook with surveys,
frameworks and activities that are reinforced through small group sessions; support tools that facilitate action planning and
provide healthy eating habits for the whole family; buddy matching for additional support; and access to the registered dietitian
throughout the program. Eating for a Vibrant Life is available for licensing to health systems and providers to be used to treat

Program to ensure that registered dietitians are successful in program implementation and in their work to improve the health
