Have you heard about the new resource to help people lose weight healthily in Tower Hamlets? GPs or health professionals can now refer people who have a BMI over 40 or 35 with related health problems to the 12-month programme, which is run by Oviva.
A team of experts will support clients by helping them to make changes to their lifestyle including diet, physical activity and mental health.
Andy who joined the programme in February 2018, lost 30kg in weight. He said: "Nothing I tried before worked, I had no confidence in myself being able to lose weight. My dietitian Rosemary was amazing. As soon as I started changing my diet, the weight was just dropping off! Although I have physically changed, the biggest part has been the mental change – I am more positive and confident now and my biggest problem is that none of my clothes fit!
