The challenge with seeing a nutritionist or dietitian in Cupar 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.

Don’t just take our word for it, hear what a Second Nature member who lives in Cupar 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 Slimming World and Weight Watchers before. I found that Weight Watchers was not particularly supportive. The leader had an accident and couldn’t work so the class was closed and no other times or locations worked for me. I liked Slimming World because of all the foods I could eat but it never worked for me in the long term. I think there were too many carbs! The clapping and sharing in the group wasn’t for me either.
2) How did you hear about Second Nature?
I saw an advert on Facebook and decided to look into it further through your website. I was worried that I would find the food restrictive as I’m quite a fussy eater, but decided to give it a go and see how I got on as it was so different from anything I had tried before.
3) What made you sign up?
I needed to try something new, a different approach. I am a serial dieter and nothing was working. I was also sick of eating the same foods all the time. Whilst I might lose weight initially with the other diets, I always fell off the wagon and Second Nature seemed to offer an alternative way to look at things, that might help change my mindset and help me build better habits.
4) What have you enjoyed most about Second Nature?
I’ve eaten some of the tastiest food I’ve ever eaten and managed to lose weight whilst not just focusing on weight loss! Second Nature has helped me to change my whole outlook on food and dieting.
