Healthy Eating and Lifestyle Programs
Provided by Weight Watchers, Int’l., Weight Watchers of Southwestern Counties Inc.,
and The Balanced Weigh
The Healthy Benefits program is beginning year eight of program support for employees who are insured by a
CIS sponsored medical plan and interested in making healthy lifestyle choices. Through the years, weight man-
agement has been the most sought after program. The science and research behind health, disease preven-
tion, and weight management are pretty clear - good health is not about body weight alone. Healthy weight,
and reducing risk for illness, are both about what we eat, how much we eat, and how physically active we are.
The good news is that our bodies respond immediately to improvements in eating and physical activity. It is
never too late to make a lasting difference in personal health and eating habits in order to improve quality of
life and reduce the risk for disease and disability. Healthy Benefits programs are committed to offering you
opportunities to learn healthy habits. Our programs are based on the science of good health, balanced eating,
physical activity, and sensible weight management.
