The challenge with seeing a nutritionist or dietitian in Hull 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.
Weekly face-to-face sessions with a dietitian, nutritionist, or nutritional therapist at a clinic in Kingston-upon-Hull can be very expensive (£40-£100/hour).
To compare the prices of visiting a private nutrition clinic anywhere in Hull with joining the Second Nature programme, we have added a column representing this (Weekly Nutritionist).
Meet a member
Don’t just take our word for it, hear what a Second Nature member who lives in X has to say about their experience of making healthy lifestyle changes:
1) Have you ever tried any weight loss programmes or slimming clubs prior to Second Nature?
I disliked that there was always pressure to always lose weight, a maintain or gain was not rewarded and failure to lose was always pushed back on you as failing to do something. They both seemed to inadvertently promote members to adopt strange patterns of behaviour. For example, I would not eat or drink on weigh day but once I had stepped on the scales I would consume their branded snacks sold at the meeting.
2) How did you hear about Second Nature?
I found Second Nature on Instagram when I felt I was struggling with binge eating. I didn’t have a good understanding of nutrition and liked that Second Nature was different – a 360 degree programme that covers all aspects of a healthy lifestyle.
3) What made you want to sign up?
I was at a conference with unlimited food and drink. I couldn’t fit into my evening gown properly and wanted to get out of it as soon as possible. That evening I said to myself that something had to change and signed up.
4) If you were trying to persuade a friend or family member to sign up to Second Nature, what would you say to them?
That if they are willing to be honest to themselves and make a genuine change with some hard work and commitment they can make significant long lasting changes to their life.
