Healthy bones and joints depend on proper exercise, nutrition, and weight management. A Body Mass Index of 30 or greater is associated with an increased risk of serious bone and joint conditions. Through the Center for Nutrition and Diabetes Management and the Center for Advanced Weight Loss, Hunterdon Medical Center offers many programs designed to help individuals make long-term lifestyle changes and meet healthy lifestyle goals.

We offer Sports Nutrition Counseling for the avid athlete as well as osteoporosis and weight management education and counseling for those looking to make healthy changes to their everyday routines. If you are struggling with obesity and related health concerns the Center for Advanced Weight Loss offers a medically supervised weight loss program as well as several surgical options.

Sports Nutrition Counseling

One-on-one sports nutrition counseling is available to athletes who want to improve their performance. Topics are tailored to the needs of the client and include:

• Protein to promote training
• Nutrition and muscle building
• Carbohydrates for energy and performance
• Hydration and exercise
• Nutrition and Marathon/Triathlon training

Sessions are scheduled by appointment at the Center for Nutrition and Diabetes Management and at the Hunterdon Health & Wellness Centers in Whitehouse Station and Clinton. Please call 908-237-6920 for more information or to set up an appointment.

Please call 908-237-6920 for session availability or to schedule a one-on-one session with a dietitian.

The Center for Advanced Weight Loss

Excess weight can put your health at risk and add dangerous levels of strain on your bones and joints. Obesity is a life-threatening disease affecting 1 in 3 adults in the United States. The Center for Advanced Weight Loss offers a comprehensive approach that includes fitness programs, nutrition counseling, medical weight loss and a variety of surgical and minimally invasive options. If surgery is ultimately needed, Hunterdon Medical Center offers many options, including gastric banding, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, and sleeve gastrectomy.

We offer a multidisciplinary team of registered dietitians, clinical psychologists, and board-certified physicians to meet your needs and help you develop an individualized weight loss plan. Program Coordinator, Christine Meny, RN, BSN can guide you through all of your options and help coordinate these services.

If you are considering bariatric surgery, our doctors and dietitians are available to answer your questions. For more information, please call 908-735-3912 or visit the Center for Advanced Weight Loss.
