BCBS – Omada Program-The Cure for the Common Diet

Hi team,

The first thing to know about Omada® is that it’s a lifestyle change program, not a diet. There will be no set meal plans, calorie counting, or extreme workouts. Instead, you’ll make gradual changes to the way you eat, move, sleep, and manage stress—4 lifestyle behaviors that have a direct impact on your weight and health.

If you or your adult family members are at risk, MHC will cover the cost of the program—a $650 value.

Check out the quotes below to see what surprised participants about the program, then see if you’re eligible by visiting omadahealth.com/mhc

  1. You don’t have to give up any foods

“Going in, I had my mind set that I would NOT give up eggs, meat or my real butter. I have not given up any of those things, and I still lost the 7% goal from my weight.” – Linda, 65

  1. You’ll have a team supporting you. 

“You aren’t in it alone. You will have a lifestyle change coach as well as a whole team of others who have similar struggles.” – Nancy, 63 

  1. You’ll learn the why, not just the what

“Omada transforms your unhealthy habits through education and guidance so that you can make better choices for the rest of your life.”- Adam, 23

  1. No calories to count.  

“Omada considers the whole of a person’s life, not just simply calories in / calories out. Hallelujah! Food tracking focuses on what I eat and portion sizes, with an emphasis on seeking out whole foods.” – Lana, 55

  1. Omada fits into your life easily.  

“I love that this program is online. You can get to know people but at the same time keep your privacy. You can check in from anywhere. This program is the perfect mix.” – Donna, 56
