Healthy Eating

With so much information about food, good and bad, available to us through social media and the internet these days, it’s hard to know what to eat and why.

Understanding how certain foods affect your body and mind is important and can help choices about what to have for dinner, or whether to have a snack, much easier.

Use the links below to find a range of information about healthy eating, useful weight loss tools and evidence based advice. You may also be referred by your GP or health professional to specific weight loss schemes.
