The challenge with seeing a nutritionist or dietitian in Woodford Green 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.

Meet a member
Don’t just take our word for it, hear what a Second Nature member who lives in Woodford Green 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 have tried Slimming World and Weight Watchers in the past. I found the food to be too low in calorie on both, leaving me hungry. As soon as I came off the plan, I would gain back the weight. I did manage to keep off half a stone of the weight I lost after stopping Slimming World though.
2) How did you hear about Second Nature?
I heard about Second Nature through word of mouth after some friends had been successful on the programme.
3) What have you liked most about the Second Nature programme?
In particular, I’ve liked how it’s based on behaviour change rather than calorie counting. This means I have created lifestyle changes that are easier to keep than other programmes which tend to be very rigid involving counting points or calories.
