We all know that losing weight is often down to a healthier diet and more exercise, but very often life gets in the way. That’s why we’ve brought the two things together in the form of FREE weekly sessions that include 45 minutes of exercise and 45 minutes of nutritional advice, where you can learn more about eating healthily.
Why lose weight
Maintaining a healthy weight can do so much for both your physical and mental well-being. If you’re carrying excess weight it means you’re more likely to suffer medical conditions including Type 2 diabetes, Coronary heart disease and certain cancers, including breast and bowel. You also have an increased chance of suffering a stroke and a heart attack and weight issues are also linked to depression.
Who can lose weight with us?
Staffordshire residents aged 50 and over who have a BMI of 28+ and:
- live in one of our targeted wards OR
- are registered to one of 40 specified GP practices
