Obesity Epidemic – Eat Less, Move More Isn’t Working
The NHS and slimming clubs, who mainly deal with weight loss by treating it as simply a food problem, don’t work
For more than 25 years we have helped hundreds of thousands of people to lose weight, and keep it off, by helping them get to the root cause of their emotional eating*
The Government’s advisory body, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), have asked healthcare professionals including GPs, England’s Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and Scottish Health Boards to provide 4 tiers of support to the obese. Tier 3 offers talking therapies, to help people identify the reasons behind why they overeat
We surveyed 225 CCGs and health boards in the UK. Our research reveals that the services available are grossly under resourced and too few and far between – in fact 19 per cent of CCGs and Health Boards, aren’t helping the obese at all!
