CLAN will be offering a new programme for people in the after-treatment stage of cancer who wish to maintain a healthy weight and avoid weight gain.
Knowing what to eat after cancer treatment can be challenging. You may have gained weight and your tastes or appetite may have changed. The dietary guidelines for people in the after-treatment stage of cancer include the recommendation to maintain a healthy weight and avoid weight gain. This can be achieved through a balanced diet and regular physical activity which can help to lower the risk of developing cancer as well as cardiovascular disease, hypertension and type 2 diabetes.
Counterweight is a nationally recognised evidence-based weight management programme which has been running for the past 10 years. Led by a qualified Counterweight practitioner, Counterweight @ CLAN will provide you with the right information to make important choices regarding your diet.
The programme takes a holistic, lifestyle approach to weight management through a combination of healthy eating, exercise and psychology. CLAN Cancer Support’s programme supports those in the after-treatment stage of cancer who want to ensure they are taking the best approach to supporting their health.
Join us at our information sessions on 6th June from 2pm and 7th June from 6pm at CLAN House, Aberdeen to find out more about the programme and the benefits of actively managing weight.
Robert Gordon University will be involved in evaluating the programme.
