The challenge with seeing a nutritionist or dietitian in Morden 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.

Don’t just take our word for it, hear what a Second Nature member who lives in Morden 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?
In the past, I have tried to lose weight with Slimming World and Weight Watchers. Although I liked the sense of progress I felt after the weekly meetings, I didn’t get along with the “one size fits all” approach, or the forced enthusiasm and slightly patronising approach. I disliked how each brand would push us to eat their own branded processed food. I never managed to maintain any weight lost.
2) How did you hear about Second Nature?
I first heard about Second Nature through social media. When I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, I knew something needed to change and asked for a referral from my GP.
3) What have you enjoyed the most about the Second Nature programme?
I think the different approach to weight loss (i.e. behaviour change) is refreshing and I liked how the scales synced up with the app, making it easier to track weight loss.
