Obesity Rehabilitation

For obesity rehabilitation, you can undergo outpatient rehabilitation at our location in Huizen. Which treatment suits you best depends on what you need, and we will discuss this with you.

With outpatient rehabilitation, you come to our clinic in Huizen a few times. How often and for how long you come depends on your goals and the therapies you follow.

During your treatment process you will be guided by a team of different experts. A few weeks after your therapy, we will contact you again to discuss how things are going and whether we can do anything for you regarding your aftercare.

During your rehabilitation we have regular evaluations with you and the treatment team. We discuss how things are going and you can indicate what works and what doesn't. If necessary, we will adjust your rehabilitation goals and treatment plan. Together we work on your recovery!

Is obesity rehabilitation something for me?

Obesity rehabilitation

The goal of diabetes rehabilitation at The Lifestyle Docs Clinics is to reduce, treat or reverse type 2 diabetes and therefore potentially life-threatening secondary health complications, such as obesity and cardiovascular disease, through a structured treatment program.

Is obesity rehabilitation something for me?

During this program you will be introduced to a complete plant-based diet, which automatically leads to calorie restriction, stress management and more exercise, resulting in:

  • Weight loss at least 7%
  • Improved metabolic health
  • Better body composition
  • Greatly improved triglycerides and total cholesterol levels
  • Improving overall health and well-being
  • Increased energy levels and less fatigue

The results show a favorable development of overall metabolic health and improved body composition. In other words, fat mass decreases, while muscle mass remains the same.

  • Healthy diet and type 2 diabetes

    Healthy diet and type 2 diabetes

    It has now been shown that type 2 diabetes is reversible in over 80% of cases if people start eating differently, usually much tastier. Patients who have been injecting insulin for years can often stop using it completely after a few months of guidance.
    We teach you what fresh, unprocessed and less insulin-producing food (such as less dairy) does with diabetes.

  • Strengthen muscle mass

    Strengthen muscle mass

    It is important to maintain or strengthen your muscle mass while losing weight. Unfortunately, we often see this happening to people who use injections without professional guidance and without lifestyle intervention: lose weight and muscle mass, and at the same time increase your fat mass. Of course we want to prevent this at all times! We will of course guide you in this.

  • Less visceral and belly fat

    Less visceral and belly fat

    A high level of visceral fat also affects your insulin sensitivity. This means that it can lead to type 2 diabetes. We monitor your visceral and abdominal fat with the BOD POD or Inbody 970. A healthier body composition improves your cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Ultimately, our goal is a greater improvement in your overall metabolic health.

Step-by-step plan for obesity rehabilitation


For rehabilitation treatment you need a referral from a medical specialist to The Lifestyle Docs Clinics . Once you have the referral, you will receive confirmation of your registration. Before your first appointment, we will send you an appointment letter with all the necessary information, including instructions on how to prepare for your first appointment.


After the referral, an intake interview with a rehabilitation doctor follows. Together you will discuss the challenges you encounter in daily life and what goals you want to achieve with the rehabilitation treatment. Based on this conversation, follow-up conversations follow with various practitioners, such as a diabetes nurse, physiotherapist, dietician or psychologist.

After the intake, the treatment team will assess whether you can recuperate with us or whether we will refer you to a practitioner in your area.

To research
During our rehabilitation program we will carry out various examinations. This includes a blood test, an exercise test and completing some questionnaires.

Treatment plan
Based on the conversations and examinations, we will draw up a treatment plan together with you. This specifies which therapies and group meetings you will attend, as well as which practitioners you will have personal conversations with.

The outpatient treatment in the focus clinic

The outpatient diabetes rehabilitation takes place at our location in Huizen Gooierhoofd. Which treatment suits you best depends on your needs and will be determined in consultation with you.

Outpatient rehabilitation
For outpatient rehabilitation, you come to our Gooierhoofd location in Huizen several times a week. The frequency and duration of rehabilitation depend on your goals and the therapies you follow.

Interim evaluation
During your rehabilitation discussions, you will have regular consultations with the multidisciplinary treatment team to discuss progress. During these conversations you can indicate what is going well and what is not. If necessary, your rehabilitation goals and treatment plan will be adjusted.

Aftercare after treatment

During a final conversation, you and your therapist will discuss how the rehabilitation went and what results were achieved.

After completion of the treatment, we transfer the care to your own practitioners. If necessary, we will refer you to a suitable therapist in your own area.

Research by the Lifestyle Docs

Nutrition & Lifestyle Intervention Program to Address Obesity and (pre)diabetes type 2 in adults

A sixty-person case series of persons with obesity, a lifestyle intervention program involving a whole food plant-based diet, that automatically resulted in calorie restriction, stress management and exercise training, resulted in clinically significant weight loss and a better body composition. This also improves triglycerides and total cholesterol (plasma) levels and the risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Health insurance

For certain health insurers, our invoice is sent via Infomedics . With other health insurers, invoicing is done directly. If you have a valid referral, the treatment will be partially or fully reimbursed by your health insurer.
