Weigh-2-Go

Weigh-2-Go is a FREE 10-week programme for adults aged 18 and over who would like to lose weight and make lifestyle changes. Delivered by trained advisors in selected GP surgeries and pharmacies, you can choose from one-to-one support or a group if you’d like the support of others trying to reach their weight goals at the same time.

Each session involves practical nutrition advice, for example on label reading, portion sizes and healthy food choices when dining out. You’ll also receive ongoing support with setting personal goals to make gradual changes and a weekly weigh-in.

Weigh-2-Go is available to adults aged 18 years and over who are overweight and meet the following criteria:

with a BMI (Body Mass Index) over 25-29kg/m2 and either:

  • at an increased risk of health problems (such as a raised waist circumference) or
  • with a weight related condition (such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol)
  • with a BMI of 30kg/m2 or above.

If you need to check your weight and BMI, your Nurse, GP or Pharmacist will help you or you can visit  NHS Choices - BMI healthy weight calculator.
