The programme is designed to give you the tools you need to make small but sustainable changes that can be maintained long term, supporting you to lose weight and maintain this weight loss.
The programme focuses on behaviour change, individuals have their weight taken each week and are encouraged to work towards a 5% weight loss goal by week 12, with a follow up session at 26 weeks.

Feedback from those who have attended the group:
“An informative course conducted excellently with lots of humour by Kayvon and Louis, together with a good bunch of blokes what more could one ask for …. Other than weight loss!!!”
“It’s not just about inches and lbs – it’s about exposure to new activities, a bit of confidence that there are other like minded guys out there, and we are ultimately not alone in our journeys. The fact that we turned up, took part and we will walk away with a support network, some new knowledge and having tried new things is the aim of the course, it’s what we do with that network and knowledge that dictates what we take out of it”
