28 People that completed a Healthy Weight programme in June 2013, lost a collective 60kg and shaved 97cm of their waists.

The Gr@nd’s Healthy Weight team have been supporting adults with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 28 or above on a 12 Week programme .Participants learned about nutrition and tried a variety of exercise taster sessions, which has helped them to make little changes to lead a healthier lifestyle.

Tracey Bloomfield, 47 from Gravesend who attended the Cascades course said: “I recommend the course, it is very good. What helped most was meeting with others in the same situation, talking, bonding as a group, giving and getting encouragement.”
