Weigh Better Life (WBL)

Would you like to lose weight? Are you overweight? Do you often feel tired and sluggish? Would you like to have more energy?  

The Weigh Better Life course, led by our registered nutritionist, is a 12 week programme for adults. The programme focuses on healthy eating, nutrition and exercise to help people lose weight and keep it off in the long term.

These workshops cover a wide variety of topics from challenging the myths about diets, blood sugar balance, snacks and treats, exercise and how stress and lack of sleep may affect appetite and food cravings.

To join the Weigh Better Life course you need to have a Body Mass Index (BMI) between 25 to 40. To find out your BMI, take a look at the BMI calculator on the NHS website

Classes are either virtual or face to face and run over 12 weeks. The course includes a weekly video sent on a different nutrition topic each week, and course handbook. All sessions now take the form of a group discussion. This course is to help you get back to feeling healthy and introducing physical activity (all levels) whilst having fun.

To find out more about the course, watch Miranda's Question Time video on YouTube.

Feedback from our January 2024 Weigh Better Life courses:

"This course has been amazing, THANK YOU! So pleased I signed up. Very pleased with the weekly Teams meetings and to be able to chat with the rest of the group and Megan; the course leader. I have lost over a stone in weight and gone down a dress size. There is still a lot more weight to lose but i know that is well within my capabilities. This has not felt like a "diet" as there is no pressure, just a new way of eating. Another bonus for me is that my blood pressure has gone from high normal, down to normal and I am hopeful my cholesterol will have reduced as well. I have recommended this course to several of my friends so hope it will be run again."

"It was the most informative course on nutrition, the science behind why we should eat certain foods, was the most useful. Things I thought I knew, but hadn't fully understood. Miranda was amazing. Not preaching, just informing. Very personable. I felt as if I could ask her anything."
