We are working with NHS Better Health to provide you with NHS weight loss support.
Covid-19 has led to changes in almost all areas of everyday life. Many people have experienced changes in their working situation while others have been self-isolating. This means, that for millions of people, staying at home has become the new norm. As we adjust to the new “normal”, there has never been a better time to look after your health. Being at home does not mean that you have to be sedentary. Use the extra time you may have to prepare nutritious meals, get active, whether indoors or outdoors and look after your mental health.
On average, obesity deprives an individual of an extra 9 years of life, preventing many individuals from reaching retirement age. To achieve Better Health, try to keep your BMI between 18.5 and 25. Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups (BAME) should aim to have a BMI between 16.5 and 23.
