Look for weight-loss programs
Locate and visit weight-loss facilities. Many offer one-stop shopping: coaching, personal training, dietary counseling, and a health club.
Consider special dietary needs
Consider food choices and accommodations for any special dietary needs you have.
Look at exercise program
Examine the exercise design -- is it built into the program? If not, are you disciplined enough to be on your own?
Expect professional oversight
Choose a program that’s overseen by medical staff or certified nutritionists. Meet with them and discuss your goals.
Check for hidden costs
Check for hidden costs, and make sure the program is right for your budget. Choose a facility that is close to your home or work so you’ll be motivated to stick with it.
