Not one size fits all! Everyone is different and there are several options when it comes to dietary approaches for weight loss. Here we provide information about a range of different dietary approaches, it's about experimenting and finding which one is right for you.
Often people that are trying to lose weight can fall into a pattern of disordered eating and go through cycles of weight gain and loss. This can lead to unhealthy habits and attitudes forming about foods which overall make weight management even more difficult and also have an impact on long-term health.
If this is something that you’ve struggled with and feel like you need support, then there is help available. You can speak to your healthcare provider for further guidance or have a look at the NHS website for further information and details of supporting organisations.
The key to losing weight and keeping it off is to get your mind around that it’s not a diet, it’s really about making long-lasting and sustainable dietary and lifestyle changes that work for you. Our My type 2 diabetes and type 2diabetes prevention eLearning courses are both great sources of further information - you can complete them in your own time and at your own pace - why not give them a try?
