Welcome to a fresh start...
Live Lighter Sheffield is a free and inclusive weight management support service brought to you by Zest, the city-based community enterprise.
Our mission is simple. To promote and enable successful and healthy lives for the people of Sheffield.
Live Lighter Sheffield offers programmes tackling key nutritional topics in an engaging and interactive way.
Our sessions deliver practical support and guidance on a range of topics including:
- The Eatwell Guide
- Portion sizes
- Emotional / Comfort eating
- Food labelling
Each session is designed to support and empower individuals like you to make small, realistic changes to your diet and health so you can move forward and achieve sustainable results.
This service is commissioned by Sheffield City Council and provides city-wide weight management support to children, families, and adults FREE of charge.
We provide a group-based service open to all ages, genders, and abilities with various programmes running at venues across the city (when restrictions allow) and virtually using Zoom, offering both day and evening sessions to suit all. Plus we have an online programme you can access via this website and work through at your own pace.
All our group programmes are led by degree qualified Weight Management Practitioners. So you can look forward to receiving expert, up-to-date and National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) compliant guidance.
So what are you waiting for? Get involved!
