The challenge with seeing a dietitian in Sydney 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.
While some appointments can now be done online, they often cost the same as in person appointments. On top of this, you’re limited to your appointment slot
For this reason, many people prefer the convenience of an online program, where they can communicate with their dietitian or nutritionist around their busy lifestyle. Plus, many individuals find a digital peer support group to be motivating and helpful.
Second Nature is a digital program 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 program.
Many people are more familiar with Weight Watchers or Noom, so we created a guide comparing the digital programs with Second Nature to help you decide what’s best for you.
The Second Nature program focuses on three areas that lead to long-term habit change: tracking, support, and education. When you sign up for the program, you receive:
- Daily support from a dietitian or registered nutritionist health coach
- Access to a local support group via the app, with members who have started the programme at the same time (up to 40 members) 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 change your habits to healthier ones, entirely from our app with no need for face-to-face meetings.
