Eating right and attaining a healthy weight isn’t always easy. It takes a great deal of knowledge, discipline, and effort. But you don’t have to take it on by yourself. We can provide the support you need to succeed on your journey to a healthier you.

Hancock HNT

Hancock Wellness is excited to announce that we have added another weight management option that may be right for you!  Hancock HNT is a comprehensive weight loss program that combines weekly healthy living classes with a highly structured meal plan to deliver results.  With the help of supportive health professionals, you’ll lose weight safely and learn to manage a healthy weight for life. The average weight loss is 40 lbs. in the first 20 weeks.

It starts with a 20-week weight loss phase called Foundation.  We offer on-going Practice classes to help support you as you adjust to maintaining your new lower weight.  To learn more about the Hancock HNT program, and to get started, you may call (317) 606-4774 or email Amanda at awilson@hntindiana.com.
