‘Why Weight?’ for a healthier lifestyle in 2018

Why Weight

Published: Tuesday, 2nd January 2018

As the festive season comes to a close, many people will be thinking about their New Year’s resolutions and perhaps considering ways to maintain a healthier lifestyle in 2018.

‘Why Weight?’- a 12-week programme delivered by Broadland District Council, may be the perfect fit for those who are looking for simple ways to stay healthy and who don’t want to be stuck to a regimented diet. In January, two new 'Why Weight?' groups will begin for anyone who would like to achieve a healthier lifestyle.

The new groups, which will run in Brundall and Thorpe St Andrew from the end of January, will consist of informal group discussions and activities, food diaries and tips for making healthy choices when eating at home and out and about. Each session will have a theme including one week where group members will visit a supermarket and take part in a ‘healthy meal food shop challenge’.    

Cllr Claudette Bannock, member champion for sport at Broadland District Council said:
“The ‘Why Weight?’ programme can see some small changes making big results for participants and is perfect for people who don’t want to have to count their calories. Sessions are informal and allow you to share experiences and tips with other members of the groups if you wish.”  
The new courses will run in Brundall on Wednesday afternoons from 24 January to 11 April, 2:30pm to 4pm at Brundall Memorial Hall, Links Avenue, NR13 5LL and in Thorpe St Andrew on Monday evenings, from 29 January to 23 April, 6:30pm to 8pm at the Dussindale Centre, Pound Lane, NR7 0SR.  

Sessions cost just £6 per week or £50 for the entire course. To book a place or to find out more, email WhyWeight@broadland.gov.uk or call 01603 430570.
