The challenge with seeing a nutritionist or dietitian in Hounslow 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 Hounslow 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 Hounslow has to say about their experience of making healthy lifestyle changes:
1) Have you ever tried to lose weight prior to Second Nature?
I’ve never joined a weight loss club before but I have been trying to lose weight with lots of different diets to no avail for years.
2) How did you hear about Second Nature?
I found out that I was borderline type 2 diabetic so my GP referred me to Second Nature to try and reduce my weight and avoid going on any medication. I followed their advice and contacted Second Nature to start the programme – I think it was the best decision I have ever made!
3) How have you found the Second Nature programme?
When I joined, I wasn’t sure if I would lose any weight but I found the articles and diet plans easy to follow. Slowly my weight was coming down and I never felt hungry, which allowed me to stick at the programme and continue up until now.
I’ve introduced my daughter to the programme as she saw me losing weight by following Second Nature’s advice. This inspired her to join the programme and pursue her own health goals.
The best bit is my diabetes is now controlled and my GP has been able to reduce my blood pressure medication due to the weight loss – I am so thankful to the Second Nature team.
