A six-week programme for metabolic health

It’s a great ‘next step’ for organisations looking to go beyond single webinar sessions, to support employees to implement change and reap the benefits for physical and mental health.

Content overview

Please note that the topics can be tailored for different themes. We’ve run versions of the programme focusing on energy and addressing fatigue, mood and brain health, or more specifically on building an exercise routine.

Week 1: Metabolic Boost – 1 hour webinar

There are many factors which influence our metabolism, from hormones to sleep, and calorie intake is just one part of the story. Why is it important to know about these factors? Because our metabolic health has a major impact throughout our life on our body shape, how we feel, as well as our overall health and longevity. Book onto this eye-opening session to discover:

  • Why our metabolism is so important for long-term health
  • How to measure metabolic health at home (why knowing your waist/hip ratio is more useful than BMI and how to measure it)
  • The role of different macronutrients (protein, fats, carbohydrates) and the perfect balance to aim for
  • How to kick sugar cravings and plan well-balanced meals throughout the week
  • The 7 blocks to healthy weight loss and how to address them (including the role of different hormones, sleep and exercise)
  • Intermittent fasting: is it a good idea?

Week 2: Practical Meal Planning – 1 hour interactive structured group coaching

Week 3: Boost your Fitness – 1 hour webinar

Whether you’re already a keen fitness fan or the idea of exercise makes you break into a cold sweat, this workshop is filled with motivating insights that will make you want to take your fitness to the next level. What it covers:

  • How fit are you? Let’s do a quick check
  • Movement vs exercise – how they differ and why we need them both
  • Benefits for your brain and your mood

Cutting down on alcohol, even for just 21 days, can pay huge dividends: clearer healthier skin, weight loss, feeling healthier and mentally stronger.

This workshop is designed to encourage and support the reduction or abstinence of alcohol for 21 days or longer.

  • Estimate how many calories you’re ‘drinking’
  • Work out your monthly tipple budget and how much you could save
  • Understand the benefits of reducing alcohol intake
