Weight Support

Types of Support

We offer support in a number of ways.  We provide links to generic support organisations such as charities in more specific areas, for a particular need or problem.  We also in some cases provide specific support, sometimes in the form of one-to-one help, sometimes special events or services. Finally, we can offer links to products which we believe can help in this area. In these last two cases, they contain affiliate links which mean that we may receive a commission for purchases made through these links. 

Support Organisations

The organisations in this category are generally government organisations or charities, set up to help people with this particular issue.

Which? give a briefing on the Public Health Responsibility Deal regarding obesity here

Specific events, coaching / training or technical support

These are more specific things you can do, such as take a course or get one-to-one advice.  There may be a charge involved.

There may be some things you can buy which will help you achieve your targets.  Some of these are listed here. Again there will be a cost involved, and you’ll leave our site to buy them.  We may earn a small commission.

Kindle Unlimited

A lot of support comes in the form of additional focussed reading, and we use Amazon as a source of books.  We find reading on Kindle more convenient (you can change the font size when your eyes get tired!).  If you do read, we use Kindle Unlimited as a way of reading books cheaply, and you can get three months free by clicking the link below.
