The challenge with seeing a nutritionist or dietitian in Wandsworth 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.

Meet a member
Don’t just take our word for it, hear what a Second Nature member who lives in Wandsworth 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 tried to lose weight with Weight Watchers which I found easy to follow and had quick results. I did Weight Watchers on three separate occasions, each time I lost around 20lbs but I never managed to keep it off. The weight always crept back on and often I would put even more weight back on.
2) What made you want to sign up to Second Nature?
It was the end of summer and I felt heavier than ever. I was worried that we were heading towards winter and another possible lockdown, so I would continue to gain weight. I saw advertisements for Second Nature on social media and then read more about it on the internet and thought it sounded good.
3) If you were trying to persuade a friend or family member to sign up to Second Nature, what would you say to them?
It’s not a quick fix but more about changing your mindset and understanding why you have certain behaviours.
