MoreLife is commissioned by local CCGs to provide Tier 3, specialist weight management services to adults with a BMI greater than 40 kg/m² or 35 kg/m² with obesity-related co-morbidities or a BMI of = 32.5 kg/m2 with type 2 diabetes and of Asian descent.
MoreLife provides a free 14 weeks weight management programme that not only looks at nutrition and physical activity but the psychological aspects of losing weight too. Our programme is informed by dietitians, psychologists and physical activity specialists and explores topics such as how emotions, lack of sleep and stress can impact upon an individual’s food choices. We also look at how the environment and people’s social situations can make weight loss difficult too.
After the initial 14 weeks, we provide monthly maintenance sessions to ensure that patients can sustain their weight loss in the long term.
We accept referrals from GPs, nurses and all allied health professionals. Patients can also refer themselves (but only West Essex area).
We currently run groups in West Essex (Saffron Walden, Great Dunmow, Harlow) and South Essex (Grays, Basildon, Brentwood, Thurrock and Rayleigh).
