"The pedometer is a big motivator!"
"It helped me understand the food groups more clearly. Especially the different sugars. I understand that although fruit is good for me, a fist-sized portion is enough!"
"I’ve learnt to moderate what I eat more. I can have jam, but just a little. This works for me, I’ve done really well."
"The details about diabetes week was very good."
"The stress management was very interesting - especially the fight or flight bit. If you get stressed, you lay down sugars in your body. "
"The behaviour of change week was very interesting - you contemplate and begin actions to make changes to behaviour. We set achievable goals - don’t bite off more than you can chew."
"I really look at labels now. I look out for the red traffic light labels and buy less of these now. I’ve also cut down on portion sizes. The course has been really helpful."
"Since I’ve been walking my digestive problems have gone. I walk a friends dog everyday now."
"The obesogenic environment - I didn’t know how supermarkets place food; firms pay to put food on the end of aisles and at different heights to catch your eye."
"It has been tremendously helpful. There’s nothing to lose, I recommend people come on the programme. It’s helped me to eat more fruit."
