Slimming World Consultants in Newton Aycliffe area have successfully supported members to lose 2,640 stone during 2019.
One in four adults has an ‘obese’ BMI of 30 or more, which could put their health at risk. Obesity has increased from 15% of adults in 1993 to 27% now.
Through its powerful combination of group support, a generous flexible eating plan and an incremental activity programme, Slimming World motivates and supports members to lose and keep off 10% of their body weight, recognising their achievements through its Club 10 programme. The Club 10 programme recognises the significant health benefits of losing and maintaining a 10% weight loss. Members who lose 10% of their starting weight receive a Club 10 award. When they have sustained their 10% weight loss for 10 weeks (or continued to lose weight) they are rewarded with a free week’s attendance at Slimming World. The award provides members with an incentive to reach and maintain their 10% target and helps to cement the habits to maintain their weight loss in the long term.
Losing weight can help reduce your risk of developing many health conditions, such as Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, some cancers, breathlessness, fertility problems, asthma and reduce depression and anxiety.
With this in mind our local consultants are urging anyone who wants to lose weight and lead a healthier lifestyle to come along and find out more,
