The challenge with seeing a nutritionist or dietitian in Whitchurch 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 Whitchurch 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 joined Weight Watchers and Slimming World in my local area. I found that I quite enjoy the Weight Watchers meetings and interacting with other people in the same boat, but I didn’t enjoy the Slimming World meetings where you felt pressured to discuss your weight gain or loss in front of the other members.
With both, I disliked the constant counting, whether it be points, calories or syns and the feelings of guilt when I gained weight. I also found it frustrating that every time I stopped going, I got heavier again and then decided to start again. I always lost weight but never kept it off.
2) What made you want to sign up to Second Nature?
I knew the risks of being overweight in a COVID world so wanted to try again to lose weight. I really liked the idea of focusing on improving health rather than just weight loss.
3) What have you enjoyed most about the Second Nature programme?
I’ve achieved the easiest weight loss I’ve ever experienced. I’ve never felt deprived or guilty. The guidelines are simple and the daily articles keep you focused and motivated.
