First5 Weight Loss Program

First5 is Orthus Health’s (OH) sensible and easy-to-follow weight loss and management program. First5 is a 6-week health coaching program, focused on getting members on the right track to lose those first tough 5 pounds.

Members who have completed the program successfully usually lose more than 10 lbs. during the 6 sessions and most continue to lose more weight after the program ends. This is due, in part, to their increased knowledge about nutritional and emotional eating, goal setting, learning how to incorporate healthy eating tips into their daily lives, and adding a practical exercise routine.
