The challenge with seeing a nutritionist or dietitian in Sheffield 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 Sheffield can be very expensive (£40-£100/hour).
To compare the prices of visiting a private nutrition clinic anywhere in Sheffield with joining the Second Nature programme, we have added a column representing this (Weekly Nutritionist).
Meet a member
Don’t just take our word for it, hear what a Second Nature member who lives in Sheffield 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, Weight Watchers and Rosemary Conley diets in the past but I disliked the group setting and was never really made to feel part of the team. I disliked the pressure I felt and found that the celebrations were always focussed on a small few.
I was successful to some degree with all of them, losing 3 stone twice at Slimming World, 2 stone at Rosemary Conley and 4 stone with Weight Watchers. Unfortunately, I found it hard to maintain and each time I gained back the weight plus more.
2) How did you hear about Second Nature?
I was fed up and searching the internet for help and came across Second Nature as a result.
3) What made you want to sign up?
After finding out about Second Nature, I felt very sad that I had “dieted” for 30 years yet I was bigger than ever and still didn’t know what to eat.
4) What have you enjoyed most about Second Nature?
I like how the nutritional information in the programme is explained in great detail. The whole programme is not about what you can or can’t have and the facts show you that being healthy and weight loss are not only about food. It is not a quick fix but for me it is reversing the last 30 years of dieting with education.
