Eat Move Be Happy 1 

The new programme aims to reduce the prevalence of heart disease, and more specifically, reduce hypertension rates across the district.

The Healthy Choices programme runs over 8 weeks, starting with a virtual welcome session to introduce Patients to the coaches and explain the approach, including what is involved. The remaining sessions are one-and-a-half-hour face to face sessions, with each week exploring a new healthy habit and including an exercise session.

The programme will coach Patients to set up for success through a mixture of peer group health education and exercise. The goal of this programme is to:

  • Improve understanding of the long-term health risks of poor diet and a sedentary lifestyle
  • Help minimise these risks using a simple framework
  • Help make long term, sustainable changes.

Topics will include:

- choosing quality carbohydrates & fats

- learning how to plan ahead (meals/shopping/exercise)

- learning what is a balanced meal for reducing blood pressure

- Portion control - ways to measure and adjust

- Falling off the wagon - be prepared for it and how to get back in the saddle

- The environment - how to change it to make good choices easier

- Social circle - how to use it to make things easier for you

You can qualify for a free place if you have a:

- BMI over 30

- High blood pressure & high cholesterol

- Aged between 18-64
