Complete Health Improvement Overview (CHIP)

The Complete Health Improvement Program (CHIP) was developed by Dr. Hans Diehl, a Clinical Professor of Preventive Medicine at Loma Linda University in California. CHIP focuses on eating more, but weighing less. It doesn’t promote limited food intake or counting calories. Instead it promotes eating healthy food, exercise, stress management and maintaining healthy sleep patterns.

CHIP has been around for more than 25 years with more than 75,000 people graduating from the program. It’s taught by physicians, dieticians, wellness coaches or certified CHIP facilitators. The Rochester Clinic offers three different settings to teach the CHIP philosophy. It can be taught at the community level, which is held at Hy-Vee Barlow Plaza, the corporate environment, where companies can hire a CHIP facilitator to instruct members on their lunch hour. Or, CHIP can be taught medically. In this category, a doctor groups patients with similar medical conditions, and they complete the program together.
