Weight Loss Program Questions and Answers (FAQs)

The Mount Sinai Morningside Weight Loss Program is actually two programs: a 52-week program for people who have 50 or more pounds to lose, and a 26-week program for people who have less than 50 pounds to lose. The programs are lifestyle-change, out-patient, self-pay, hospital-based weight loss programs offering weekly closed-group sessions. Group sessions are led by a team of health care professionals in nutrition, behavior change, and exercise. The treatment team and approach are the same in both programs.

In adherence with COVID-19 precautions, all our programs are run online using the Zoom application. You can participate in any of our programs from the safety and privacy of your own home from anywhere in the country.

Our offices are located at Mount Sinai Morningside on West 114th Street and Amsterdam Avenue (adjacent to Columbia University), on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in New York City.
