Vtrim for Undergrads and Vtrim for the Community are weight-management programs based on behavior modification, teaching students to understand, decode and repackage their attitudes and behaviors toward food and physical activity.
Vtrim’s online format is designed around a small, closed group format (12 – 20 students) with weekly meetings in Vtrim’s online text-based classroom, online assignments, food & exercise journaling, plus expert guidance and feedback from Vtrim facilitators.
Course objects include teaching students to:
- Identify behavioral strategies and techniques that encourage a healthy lifestyle and facilitates weight management;
- Understand how food choices, the environment, social support, exercise and other factors influence weight and health risks;
- Develop self-monitoring skills that allow students to identify the impact of calorie intake and exercise on energy balance.
A certified facilitator with professional credentials leads all Vtrim courses; most Vtrim facilitators are Registered Dietitians or Master’s Level Counselors.
Vtrim for Undergrads is an online course only for UVM Undergraduate students. Vtrim for the Community courses are for UVM staff & faculty; both online and in-person sections of Vtrim for the Community courses are available.
We encourage students who’ve completed a Vtrim I course within the past year to continue on their journey by registering for a Vtrim II class; Vtrim II delivers the second half of the original 6-mos protocol researched & developed within UVM’s Nutrition and Food Sciences department.
Backed by over 19 years of university-based research, Vtrim courses have a proven track record of long-term success helping students achieve their health and weight related goals. Register today for Vtrim for Undergrads or Vtrim for the Community. Space is limited!
