The Dietetics weight management service supports people to feel more confident about managing their weight and health through diet and lifestyle changes. Using a friendly approach which puts individuals at the centre, guidance and advice is tailored by registered and experienced dietitians according to individual’s needs, taking their health profile into consideration. The service is available to adults with a BMI 30+ and will support individuals to:
Plan, implement and review their chosen diet and lifestyle goals
Achieve a realistic health-enhancing weight loss
Identify everyday factors that will affect their weight control and health
Develop knowledge and confidence to manage their weight and health in the long-term
The service has been running since 2011 and has supported hundreds of individuals who have collectively lost 2000kg! To read about how the dietitians helped one local man change his life, see "I did it My Way" below.
With financial support from The Commission, the Dietitians are delivering the CounterWeight Plus programme locally, a clinically proven programme for type 2 diabetes remission.
Clients can be referred to the service by their GP, health care professional, or Life Fit. For more information see the Dietitians' website.
