Will I lose weight on this programme?

Wellbeing Way has been designed by a team of Dietitians, clinical and health Psychologists, and experts in exercise, to facilitate a 5% total weight loss. The advice you receive is evidenced based and in line with current NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) guidelines for weight management, this advice has also been personalised based on the answers you provided during your profile set up.  Nevertheless, changes to your weight will require behaviour change. The programme is designed to support and empower you to take meaningful steps to achieve a healthier weight but ultimately you will be your own driver to success. 

Tip: Completing your weekly checklists will help keep you on track with your weight loss goals. 

What actions do I need to take each week?
  • Weigh yourself once a week and update your health tracker with your latest reading
  • Complete the latest online module, and use what you have learned to create your SMART goals
  • Work on your goals and update them in the app
  • Chat in the community forum and make use of the bank of guides, top tips, blogs, and recipes available in your Resources.
Do I need any measurement equipment?

The only mandatory measurement across the programme is weight therefore you will be required to have weighing scales.

How frequently should I take my weight?

Weigh yourself weekly and log that weight in your ‘Health Tracker’, this will help you to track your progress and achievements. If possible, try to weigh yourself at the same day and time each week.  

* Logging your weight weekly is a requirement of all users on our programme, if you do not have access to scales at home, have a think about how you will weigh yourself. Could you borrow scales from a friend or family member? Alternatively, you can often weigh yourself at your GP surgery, local pharmacy, or leisure centre.  

How does the programme work? What will I be eating?

During your programme you will learn about portion guidance and how to improve the overall balance and quality of the food you eat. Use this knowledge to make choices that will help you achieve your goals. No food is off the table completely and there is no single superfood which you must eat.  

Take what you learn in your online modules and apply that to the foods you enjoy; you can still enjoy your food whilst making meaningful steps towards a healthier lifestyle. If you need a reminder of what you could be doing towards your weight loss goals, review your weekly checklist, and try to complete all the items each week.

Should I stick to my suggested meal plan for the full 12 weeks?

All meal plans are designed to be used for three to seven days (maximum). The purpose of providing you with a meal plan is to give you an idea of what you could eat whilst on the programme and give you additional support in making food choices at the start of your programme, should you feel you would benefit from it.  

We encourage you to create your own meal plans, including foods you enjoy that align with eating well advice, take a look at our recipes for inspiration. 

Can I skip an online module?

Try to think of your online modules as the pieces of a puzzle, having all the pieces makes for a much clearer picture! We recommend you work through all 12 online modules; they have been created with you in mind and are your steppingstones to success.
