About Us

Our team is serious about supporting individuals, families and communities to help them achieve their healthy-lives. We know that the issue of obesity is not going away and if we don’t tackle it now, we will pay with our lives later.

MoreLife exists to raise awareness, inspire action and treat the global problem of obesity. Our team have an unshakable passion to support those who struggle with their weight, to better their own lives by making small, achievable changes. Our approach is driven by our passion to make sustainable changes to people’s lives by creating programmes that: are grounded in robust research; are relevant to every-day experiences; and help people reach their healthy-life goals.

We've been around for quite some time, born from Leeds Metropolitan University in 1993 as Carnegie Weight Management. Founded by Professor Paul Gately, one of the UK's most respected experts in obesity and nutrition, MoreLife’s heritage is anchored in its research and academic philosophy.
