The challenge with seeing a nutritionist or dietitian near Southam 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 X 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 have used Weight Watchers to try to lose weight. They used our Cricket Club for meetings and I let them in so I stayed! I liked that the programme was app based so you could log everything easily and keep track of your points. However, I disliked how neither the meetings nor the app explained why we were supposed to eat certain foods which were mostly aimed at being low in calorie and then lots of fruit. I did lose weight but didn’t manage to keep it off as I found the support to be lacking.
2) How did you hear about Second Nature?
I did a Google search and found both Second Nature and Noom. I chose Second Nature over Noom because Second Nature gave all the information upfront prior to starting, and had the advantage of a personal coach to help throughout the programme.
3) What made you want to sign up?
I wanted to sign up because I was overweight, fast approaching 60 and felt like I needed to shift this extra baggage as if I didn’t my mobility would get worse and it might kill me earlier!
4) If you were trying to persuade a friend or family member to sign up to Second Nature, what would you say to them?
That if you are serious about losing weight and changing your lifestyle this is the programme for you.You are given all the tools to learn what you should eat and why and that it is not a quick fix but a long term change in habits.
