We all know that its calories in matching calories out, but the programme made you aware of the whole picture rather than focusing on just food

SandraAdult Weight Management Completer

I feel as if I have more energy and confidence since starting the MoreLife programme.

JanetAdult Weight Management Completer

I started my MoreLife journey at 94.5kg, and 12 weeks later, I was 86.4kg! Unfortunately, COVID-19 then hit so I now work every day instead of part-time, this made it harder for me to maintain my diet. I find it hard now being able to go swimming but I have been doing 10k steps every day and will continue to lose weight.
