Weight and Diet Advice

Are you struggling to lose weight? We can help.

Make an appointment to see the practice nurse – a double appointment for your first visit. We will talk about your health, what you normally eat and how much exercise you do.

Then we will recommend what sorts of food to eat and when. If you wish we will also recommend a healthy target weight for you to aim for.

Weighing is as often as you wish, but we find once every 2 weeks works well for most people.

A record of your weight is kept.

A trained dietician has clinics at the surgery and if you have a particular health problem, or are struggling, you could also see the dietician for advice.

A variety of diet information sheets are available on request from the practice nurses, including diabetic diet, low fat diet and low cholesterol diet sheets.
