Food & Activity Buddies (FAB)
What Does Our Service Do?
FAB weight management services are for anyone who needs support to achieve a healthy weight. The FAB team run fun and interactive six week courses to help you identify and overcome your food and exercise barriers and make a positive lifestyle change.
Each two hour session contains an interactive nutrition workshop and exercise session. FAB Nutritionists will help you to understand various food topics and our FAB Exercise Mentors will support you to become more physically active. All exercise sessions are tailored to your ability, so everyone can take part.
We monitor your weight as well as your lifestyle changes. There will be a six week check up after your course and we will find out how you are doing. If the barriers have re-surfaced we can help you set new goals to get you back on track.
