Our trademarked weight control system is one that aims to make the difficult task of losing weight and eating healthier easier for individuals with Prader-Willi syndrome and their families. The red, yellow, green color codes based on the traffic light make the guide easy to follow and easy to use.
Using an individualized daily meal plan and the Red, Yellow, Green System for Weight Control, calories are controlled by dividing food into low, moderate, and high-calorie food groups. Individuals using the system learn to "go" with some foods, "be cautious" with some foods, and "stop" eating other foods.

Yellow foods are "Caution" foods.
