We are working in partnership with NHS Ayrshire & Arran to deliver the Weigh to Go programme East Ayrshire.
The programme is suitable for anyone over 18 years with a BMI of 25 or more.
Twelve week group sessions
We deliver Weigh to Go over 12 weeks as group sessions, and will give you advice on having a healthier lifestyle through positive eating habits and increased physical activity. Each week covers a different topic such as proteins, fats and hidden sugars.
We also include a 45 minute session of activity that is suitable for all levels and 45 minutes of nutritional education.
We will continue to provide ongoing support for one year after the programme ends.
Six sessions one-to-one
Another option is a more condensed programme delivering six sessions one-to-one where we can sit with you and discuss healthy eating and work out goals for you to achieve.
We would also encourage you to increase your physical activity by attending one of our health walks or try an exercise class.
We will follow up after six months, and one year, to ensure you are still maintaining those changes.
