Having and maintaining a healthy weight is vital for a balanced and healthy lifestyle. This can be a challenge for some. Here in Torbay we offer services suited to you to support your goals in a range of ways.

You can have your height and weight measured at your local GP surgery, the results of which are then used to calculate your Body Mass Index or BMI.

Maintaining a healthy weight is about keeping the right balance between the energy that you put into your body (food), and the energy you burn through physical activity.

You don't always have to spend hours at the gym and go on a strict diet. In fact, you can get to a healthy weight by making a few small and long-lasting changes to your diet and lifestyle. There are some innovative local projects and a team of professionals and health trainers who can support you.
