Weight management

If you struggle to control your weight on your own, actually you're not alone. Many people find it difficult to keep to a healthy weight.

The good news is there are many weight loss and weight management programmes that are available to help you to lose the pounds and to keep them off.

Everyone is different, so depending on your personal circumstances you may get along fine with a few tips or maybe some signposting to some activities and organisations.

If you need something a bit more structured or intensive to succeed, there are options there too.

On these pages we've gathered together information for the different parts of the Frimley Health and Care area.
