Weight Management


Want to learn how to lose weight without giving up your favorite foods? Naturally Slim® is a 52-week digital counseling program that teaches you simple, repeatable skills to help you lose weight and keep it off in the real world, without giving up the foods you love. There's no counting calories or spending time prepping “approved” foods. You’ll learn how to eat the foods you love while reducing your risk of developing serious health conditions like diabetes or heart disease – and it's free under your Horizon BCBSNJ health plan.

The program has three phases:

  • Foundations: weeks 1-10
  • NS4You (reinforcement): weeks 11-20
  • NS4Life (maintenance): weeks 21-52.

After the first 10 weeks, members are encouraged to build upon their Naturally Slim skills through the remaining 42 weeks of the program. There is no out-of-pocket cost to an eligible member at any time during the 52-week program.
