Lite 4 Life Weight Management

(currently online only)

Tees Active’s Lite 4 Life initiative is a 10 week group weight management programme that educates, supports and promotes sustainable lifestyle changes to prevent long term complications, which can arise from being over weight. Participants will learn about diet and physical activity to enable them to change their lifestyle and improve their overall health and wellbeing. Lite 4 Life has been running in partnership with Public Health for many years via referral from General Practitioners, however the programme is now open for self referral for any residents living in Stockton-on-Tees.

The Lite 4 Life programme is aimed at individuals who may be experiencing a number of conditions such as Diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, joint pain, low mental health or any weight related conditions. You must also have a BMI of 25 and over and be aged 16+.

FAQs

Here’s some useful tips for leading a healthier lifestyle…

Eat regularly

Always have a healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner. Eating breakfast kick-starts your metabolism and consuming food at regular intervals maintains this throughout the day. Skipping meals decreases your metabolism.

Drink Sensibly

If you drink alcohol, drink sensibly. Women should not exceed
2-3 units per day and men should not exceed 3-4 units per
day. Remember though that all alcoholic drinks are high in
calories and contain very little nutrition.

Portion size

Use around a 9” plate at meal times. Vegetables should cover half your plate, carbohydrates such as potatoes, rice or pasta should cover a quarter and lean meat or fish should cover the final quarter.

Eat a variety of foods

This is to ensure that you receive all the nutrients your body needs e.g. vitamins, minerals, energy, protein, calcium, fluids etc.

Move more!

Regular exercise burns calories. Increasing your muscle mass also increases your metabolism. Therefore combine cardiovascular exercises like jogging and walking with resistance exercises like lifting weights or doing body weight exercises.

Important Exclusion Criteria

There are a number of health conditions that will unfortunately prevent acceptance to the Lite 4 Life programme. If you would like to discuss your personal circumstances confidentially with a member of our health team please email referral@teesactive.co.uk
