The challenge with seeing a nutritionist or dietitian in Bath is that you have to take a few hours out of your week to travel to and from the session and have the consultation. There are also travelling expenses associated with face-to-face consultations.
In the current climate, most in-face appointments have been shifted to online but might still cost the same amount. On top of this, you’re limited to your appointment slot rather than getting support as and when you need it.
For this reason, many people prefer the convenience of an online programme, where they can communicate with their nutritionist or dietitian around their busy lifestyle. Plus, many individuals find a digital peer support group to be motivating and helpful.
Second Nature is a digital programme that helps you to lose weight and make sustainable lifestyle changes. Second Nature combines support from registered nutritionists and dietitians with the convenience of an app-based programme.
Many people are more familiar with Weight Watchers or Slimming World, so we created a guide comparing the digital programmes with Second Nature to help you decide what’s best for you.
The Second Nature programme focuses on three areas that lead to long-term habit change: tracking, support, and education. When you sign up for the programme, you receive:
- Daily support from a registered dietitian or nutritionist health coach
- A digital peer support group
- 2-week, risk-free trial
- Hundreds of in-app recipe videos
- Daily educational articles
- Meal planning and journaling tools
- Steps, weight, and habit tracking technology
We’ll help you replace bad habits with healthy ones, entirely from our app with no need for face-to-face meetings.
Take a look at our Trustpilot reviews to understand what people think of the programme.

Meet a member
Don’t just take our word for it, hear what an Second Nature member who lives in Bath has to say about her experience of making healthy lifestyle changes:
1) Have you ever seen a nutritionist or dietitian in the Bath area?
No. I have known dietitians in the past, but I have not had a consultation.
2) Have you ever tried any weight loss programmes or slimming clubs before you tried Second Nature?
Yes, I had success at Slimming World, but as we all read, the weight comes back on again over a couple of years. I sort of went back, but it seemed to me that my failure would be their success by trying again.
3) How did you hear about Second Nature?
Nothing more complicated than a Twitter Ad. However, the ad reminded me that I had read about the programme somewhere else beforehand.
4) What made you sign up?
I sense I am overweight again. The advert suggested a good success rate and a positive completion rate.
5) Would you say that Second Nature is good value for money?
Yes, I would! In terms of the raw numbers, it has run out at just over £10 per kilogram of weight loss for me, but everyone will be different. It has also saved me money by allowing me to get some nice looking clothes out of the wardrobe that I couldn’t fit into before. I imagine that I will be able to hold my new habits.
