Thank you. Your choice has been saved. You can change your preferences at any time.
You can work on tackling your diet on your own and here are some resources that you may find helpful.
However, it can be easier to make changes with the help of a health coach to find out what works best for you and support you to make changes at your own pace and develop your confidence to maintain those changes and manage any set-backs.

It doesn't matter if you don't know what you want or what could help you; a health coach will discuss your situation with you and help you decide what's important for you.
Whether you decide to be supported by a health coach or not at this stage, you will find plenty of suggestions in the links below to help you.
The eatwell plate applies to most of us – whether we're a healthy weight or overweight, whether we eat meat or are vegetarian, and no matter what our ethnic origin.
Anyone with special dietary requirements or medical needs might want to check with a registered dietitian whether the eatwell plate applies to them.
We were all brought up to finish the food on our plates, but sometimes it’s more than we really need. Try our simple tips to get you and your family into great healthy eating habits.
Being underweight can damage your health. Weighing too little can contribute to a weakened immune system, fragile bones and feeling tired. There might be an underlying medical cause for your low weight, such as an overactive thyroid. Or you may simply be underweight because your diet isn't providing you with enough energy. Stress or other emotional problems can sometimes cause a change in eating patterns that is hard to recognise.

This booklet is for people with a high blood cholesterol level. It also gives advice to their friends and family. It explains what cholesterol is, its role in coronary heart disease, what causes a high blood cholesterol, and how it can be kept under control.
Food plays an important part in our lives, and most of us will spend time thinking about what we eat. Our relationship with food often changes – sometimes we may try to eat more healthily, have cravings, eat too much or lose our appetite. We may find it hard to eat if we’re feeling stressed, or eat comfort food if we feel unhappy. Changing your eating habits every now and again like this is normal, and doesn’t need to worry you.
