The theme of this programme is changing your eating behaviours without changing your lifestyle
The media consistently report food related stories, such as how obesity is increasing, diets to make you slim in 3 weeks, foods which are good for you, foods which are bad for you, how anorexia in young girls is increasing…. The list is never ending.
This 8-week programme explores your eating habits, looking at what influences eating behaviours and why you respond the way you do. Based on the Government’s healthy eating recommendations and guidelines the programme takes you through a series of steps to look at your own eating behaviours, the type of food your body needs for you to be a healthy weight, and how much of those foods you should be eating.
The programme is ideal for those who want to:
- Lose weight, or
- Gain weight, or
- Understand how to eat healthily
