Vitality Healthy 4 life (Adult healthy weight loss)
Vitality Healthy 4 life is an adult weight loss programme designed to provide participants with the information and support to make long-term changes to their lifestyle that will encourage healthy weight loss and increase physical activity levels.
The free 12 week programme is run by trained health improvement practitioners, who provide the knowledge and support needed to make healthier lifestyle choices. Each weekly, hour-long session is fun and interactive, with helpful information on what makes up a healthy diet, advice on increasing physical activity, and the barriers often faced when trying to lose weight. Sessions also include weekly weigh-ins and an opportunity to discuss progress on a one to one basis.
The programme begins with a brief outline of the course, starting weight measurements, and a welcome pack that will include a food diary to complete throughout the programme. Each weekly hour-long session will then include educational information on diet and nutrition, food labelling, portion sizes, increasing physical activity, changing behaviours, and much more.
Programmes are available in venues throughout Thurrock, in the daytime and early evening.
