Hi there. My name is Amy and I am a NHS Health Trainer for Holderness. Public Health England recently released their ‘Better Health’ campaign which initially focuses on weight loss. Whilst we all know the importance of maintaining a healthy weight, it is sometimes hard to know where to start and who can help. This blog aims to summarise this guidance and tell you about what is going on in our local area to support you.
Being overweight or obese causes additional pressure around our vital organs which in turn makes it more difficult to protect ourselves against diseases like cancer, heart disease and COVID-19. The Better Health campaign aims to support weight loss to reduce the risks associated with an unhealthy weight. The Better Health Webpage has lots of tools to kick-start weight loss such as their 12 week weight loss plan as well as links to free online workout video and exercise classes. https://www.nhs.uk/better-health/
There are also lots of local services in the East Riding of Yorkshire to support weight loss. Our NHS Your Health Health Trainer service provides free 1:1 personalised support for help individuals achieve their weight loss goals and sustain these changes. Put simply, we work with you to find what works for you! This way we can help to keep the weight off for good! We can also support with alcohol consumption, physical activity, sexual health, emotional wellbeing and stopping smoking.
