FAQs

For online sessions, you will be required to send your weight monthly ahead of your session.

Joining a new group gives you the opportunity to learn from and share with others that
have been through the first 12 weeks like yourselves.
Everyone receives the same content over the course of 9 months, everyone does each
session once.

The change from weekly to monthly helps empower you to continue the changes you’ve made whilst still having support from your practitioner.

By keeping up with what you’ve learnt in the first 12 weeks:
•  Reviewing your goals every 1-2 weeks
•  Keeping a food diary
•  Monitoring your activity levels

By reviewing your goals every 1-2 weeks, and actively working on the goals you’ve set. Keeping a food diary/exercise diary/thought diary and revisiting content between sessions will give you accountability, refresh your knowledge and help you with setting future goals.

Once per calendar month.

Once you have completed the programme it is down to you to use the tools (handbook, recap email, resources, physical activity) you have learnt over the 12 months with Morelife, and to continue with the lifestyle changes you’ve made to reach your goals. If you are on the bariatric pathway and have achieved the 3 criteria, you will have a review call for bariatric surgery. If you are on this pathway, you will be informed by your practitioner.

We revisit some of the topics covered in the first 12 weeks to refresh your knowledge and reflect on your progress and the behaviour change that has occurred.

We cover a variety of topics including nutrition-based information.

No, we do not have structured weekly calls, we meet once per month and there will be information to recap in the summary emails and in the handbook. However, if you need additional support or advice (e.g., food diary), you can arrange this with your practitioner.

In some cases, to aid weight loss, we can prescribe Orlistat. However, further information can be found by speaking to your practitioner.
We do have cut-off points for the prescribing of medication, which is handled on a case-by-case basis.

To be reviewed for bariatric surgery you need to meet all of the below criteria:
•  Achieve a 5% weight loss
•  Engage with the programme (attend 80% of sessions)
•  Attend 2 bariatric information sessions
You can discuss this further with the practitioner too.

If you cannot attend a session, please inform your practitioner in advance. The Attendance Policy states that: if you do not attend on two occasions and do not let us know or if you miss three sessions in total (even if you let us know), then you could potentially be removed from service, and it may affect your place on the programme. We appreciate that individual circumstances may vary so if you cannot make a session, please let your practitioner know in advance via phone/text/email.

If you feel the 12 weeks gave you enough information and do not wish to continue with the monthly phase, you can let your practitioner know to discharge you. If you want bariatric surgery then attendance to the monthly phase is mandatory.
