A 12-week weight loss programme for obese people is starting soon across the district.
Bradford Council’s Healthy Weight Programme aims to transform people’s lives by helping them get to a healthy weight.
The programme, run over 12 weeks, helps people with a Body Mass Index (BMI) more than 30 – meaning they are obese or clinically obese – to lose weight by making small, sustainable adjustments to their lifestyle.
Excess weight and obesity are linked with a higher risk of developing a range of conditions such as diabetes, cancer and heart disease, as well as mental health problems such as low moods and depression.
Alison Moore, senior public health manager for Bradford Council, said: “The courses not only help you to achieve safe and sustainable weight loss but also will give you the tools to take control, stay motivated and get active.
