New ‘Choose to Lose’ NHS weight loss courses for New Year

LOOKING to lose a few pounds after Christmas and get a healthier start to the New Year? A new series of free NHS ‘Choose to Lose’ weight management courses will be launching across North Liverpool and Sefton in early 2013.

Each course is six weeks long - split over a series of weekly, one hour sessions which are running at a range of different times and community locations. All of the courses are run by trained health workers from Liverpool Community Health (LCH) NHS Trust, and are completely free to attend.

Joanne Wilson, a Specialist Weight Management Dietitian from Liverpool Community Health explains,

Our team will work with people to help them set realistic and manageable weight loss goals, as well as offering lots of practical advice and support on losing weight in a healthy way.”

“Over the weeks, we look at things like how to read labels on food properly, and how to make small changes to your diet and lifestyle which add up to a big difference.”

“People can also choose to monitor their progress by being weighed each week, if they want.”
