Body Composition Analysis (BCA)

This analysis is based on an individual’s personal information using weight, height and age.  The BCA shows the composition of your body in terms of fat, muscle, and water content.  This can help you concentrate on losing body fat instead of just focusing on losing pounds.  A body composition analysis is completed at the beginning and the end of this 12 week program.

Program Options

For your convenience, CORE4 is offered individually or in a group setting.


This setting provides individual, personalized consultations with Prairie Lakes Healthcare System Registered and Licensed Dietitians throughout the complete program.  You will meet with the dietitian and develop a personalized plan in a private, confidential setting.


This setting is great for co-workers, or a group of friends who wish to go through the program together and share their support.  You will receive one individual appointment with a registered dietitian at the beginning of the program to set some individual goals and to complete your initial Body Composition Analysis.  These sessions will be held at the same day and time each week..

Maintain Your Success

Following the 12 week weight loss program, CORE4 continues with a 3 month weight maintenance program designed to continue you on your weight management journey.  Additional topics are available as well as ongoing support.

Every step of the way, we’ll be there to guide and encourage you!  Contact the Prairie Lakes Healthcare System Registered Dietitians at 605-882-7874 to schedule an appointment or to inquire when the next group sessions start.
