The challenge with seeing a nutritionist or dietitian in Doncaster 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 Doncaster 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?
In the past, I’ve tried Weight Watchers and Slimming World. I found that I lost weight initially but as soon as I took a break I would gain some weight back which was frustrating.
2) How did you hear about Second Nature?
Second Nature was recommended to me by my NHS doctor. I signed up because I wanted to try a new way of losing weight, since the other methods hadn’t worked in the long term.
3) What did you enjoy most about the Second Nature programme?
I really liked that we were able to enjoy all food types rather than restricting anything, instead we learnt to enjoy them in moderation. I found the encouragement and guidance from my health coach to be great. I liked that physical activity was encouraged too which is different from some other programmes.
