Support Group- Columbia

 

Missouri Bariatric Services hosts a support group in Columbia, typically, on the first Monday of each month. E-mail announcements are sent monthly with the specific date and time of the support group. Presenters and topics rotate.

Support group is a great place to meet other people who have gone through weight loss surgery. Many benefit people benefit from attending support group. Support groups help them stay motivated and give them ideas on how to address a certain challenge they may be having. We look forward to seeing you!

Getting More Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis (NEAT)

 

Join us for an opportunity to explore ways to start increasing your overall movement profile without making giant changes or huge sacrifices. Many of these small steps will fit into the your current daily schedule. In addition, we will look at opportunities to reduce time spent sitting and give you easy ideas to become a more active person. 



After this support group, participants will be able to:

1. Define the types of thermogenesis, especially NEAT.

2. Discuss the benefits of increasing small steps, not just long exercise sessions.

3. Identify activities that can be modified to make a person more metabolically active, without causing pain or exhaustion.

4. Discover areas in the day where a few steps can be added and sitting time can be decreased.
