Eat Well

One You Plymouth offers a free healthier eating/healthier weight programme to anyone aged over 18 living, or registered with a GP, in Plymouth. The Eat Well programme provides an understanding of how to make informed changes to your diet and lifestyle, helping you develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to manage your weight more effectively and live a healthier lifestyle.

The programme offers 7 group sessions with supportive health improvement practitioners. These weekly sessions include evidence based nutritional information, group discussion, hands on activities and resources to take home with you. Further free support to help maintain a healthier weight includes monthly weigh in and motivational support sessions, a 4 week healthy cooking course plus access to free and subsidised activity sessions.

The programme is suitable for those with a body mass index (BMI) between 26-39.9. If you’re not sure of your BMI, you can use our BMI calculator below.

Three reasons to eat well


BMI is a measure that adults can use to see if they are a healthy weight for their height. For most adults, an ideal BMI is between 18 and 25. If your BMI is over 25, you weigh more than is ideal for your height.


You can also attend a free informative, two hour, Healthy Eating Workshop covering a range of subjects designed to motivate, energise and educate towards making small changes around healthier eating.


Eating healthily can cost less than you might think. There are plenty of healthy options available which will not just help you to live a healthier lifestyle but will also help your bank balance.
