Your journey towards a healthy weight

You can take 6 actions today that will start your journey towards a healthy weight:

  1. Download the NHS weight loss plan.
  2. Check if you're a healthy weight with our BMI healthy weight calculator. If you need to lose a few pounds, you'll be given a daily personal calorie target.
  3. Take the next snack you plan to have and swap it for something healthier. Aim to do the same every day: you've adopted your first weight loss habit.
  4. Drinks, including alcohol, contain calories too, so try to cut down on sugary drinks and get advice about cutting down on alcohol.
  5. Find a way to fit just 1 extra walk into your day. Check out our walking tips.
  6. Try to have breakfast every morning. Get ideas in healthy breakfasts (for people who hate breakfast).
