Following a successful introduction in 2017, Counterweight@CLAN returns to CLAN House in May 2018.
Two informal information sessions will be held at CLAN House on 24th April, between 2pm and 3pm and 25th April between 6pm and 7pm for anyone who wishes to find out more about the programme.
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 qualified Counterweight practitioner and Registered Dietitian, 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. The course consists of six, two weekly sessions with follow-up sessions after three, six and 12 months.
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.
A Registered Nutritionist at Robert Gordon University will be involved in evaluating the programme.
