Obesity – “Dicke zurück ins Leben”

Region: Jena und Thüringen

Losing weight gives you more room in life.
Bernd Stelter

The subject of our self-help group and our joint work is obesity, an increase in body fat above normal levels.

Goals and tasks

A "protected space" where everyone shares the same problems.

  • Acceptance and understanding of the group, support and assistance
  • Guidance and help for self-help
  • Contact to the obesity specialists of the University Hospital Jena
  • Nutritional counseling in practical form
  • Thematic, easy-to-understand lectures and information from doctors and   specialists
  • Information and education on bariatric surgery - prerequisites, course,   results
  • Testimonials from patients
  • Help with applications to the authorities
  • Finding a new quality of life together with weight loss

Our motto: Obese - Conscious - Clever

Who do we want to reach?

People who want to lose weight, as well as their relatives and friends
People who want to actively work on their weight goal and on maintaining their health
All those who have not yet dared to lose weight, who have not found any help and who feel alone with their problem.

Come to us - join us on the way - back to life!
Let's try it together!

Group meetings

Every first and third Monday of the month at 5:30 pm at the University Hospital in Jena-Lobeda.
