The challenge with seeing a nutritionist or dietitian in Croydon 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 Croydon can be very expensive (£40-£100/hour).

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’ve tried Weight Watchers and calorie counting using MyFitnessPal in the past but didn’t lose weight with either. I found the constant counting and adding up really impractical and couldn’t find a way to make meals work for the whole family.
2) How did you hear about Second Nature?
I found out about Second Nature following a Google search. I liked that the programme helps you to gradually learn about managing your diet by changing just one or two elements at a time.
3) What made you want to sign up?
I’ve been on steroids for the past two years and my HbA1c has been slowly creeping up. Since I’m an ethnic minority, I know that I’m predisposed to type 2 diabetes, and I have a family history. I was carrying some extra weight as well and knew something had to change!
4) What have you enjoyed most about Second Nature?
The programme has allowed me to learn about managing 1-2 different elements of my diet and lifestyle at a time, rather than doing too much at once. I like that you have the support and guidance when following the programme and there is help available to adapt things to suit your likes and dislikes. Most importantly, I’m pleased that it has delivered results and that Second Nature has your back in the long term!
