The NHS has trialled a small-scale pilot of Dr Jen Nash’s Eating Blueprint online programme for people with Type 2 diabetes. The Eating Blueprint is a 12-week programme that equips users with psychological tools to change their eating habits and reach their weight management goals. There was an average weight loss of 5kg and an HbA1c reduction for people using the programme over a six-month period. Some participants were able to stop taking their Type 2 diabetes medication. If you are worried your weight and would like to join the programme membership is currently available for just £7 per week (you are free to cancel at any time). www.eatingblueprint.com
