A series of free weight management programmes have been launched in Blackpool.

Energise Blackpool and Energise Blackpool Teens are organised by weight management specialist ABL Health and commissioned for the town by its Clinical Commissioning Group.

The programmes, as well as a specialist Choose to Change scheme, aim to promote behavioural change with nutritional and physical activity support.

The programmes will help people to lose weight and keep it off.

Grandmother Heather Lee has lost five per cent of her body weight in just six months on the Choose to Change Programme.

She said: “It is not a diet. Instead it educates you on portion sizes, how to read food labels and that all food can be enjoyed in moderation.”
