Highmark On-line Weight Management Programs

Participate in HealthMedia Balance, a weight management and physical activity program offered through your Highmark medical plan. Balance is an ideal program for individuals who want to lose weight, maintain a recent weight loss, or prevent weight gain associated with aging.

Balance is not a pre-set nutrition and exercise plan. Instead it teaches you how to make your own smart decisions about managing your weight. Balance is convenient, private, and easy to use. Simply complete and submit the Balance questionnaire to receive a Personal Plan for Weight Management built especially for you. Your plan will provide personalized strategies for making healthy food selections, increasing physical activity, and developing a positive self-image. Soon, you’ll be on your way to living a longer, healthier, happier life!
