CHANGE FOR GOOD

For many people, weight management is a tough, very

personal and frustrating experience. Some have spent much of

their adult lives 'on a diet' and have usually read everything,

tried everything and heard everything all before, but have

struggled to find solutions which provide anything more than

short-term success. Can OurPath change all that?

ADVERTORIAL

T

he OurPath programme

draws on the latest

behavioural change

science to support people

to do just that. It combines

a variety of tried and tested elements into

one holistic package - going beyond just

diet and exercise, it also looks at thought

patterns, behaviours: sleep and stress

management, for instance. It is part of a new

breed of healthcare sometimes described

as 'digital therapeutics' - a variety of apps

and services which offer evidence-based

and personalised behaviourial therapy to

address healthcare challenges.

The OurPath programme is fuelled by an

experienced team of health coaches who

bring their wisdom, knowledge and expertise

to help people with setting and reaching

personal weight goals by building healthier

daily habits. And it does this by harnessing

the power of the smartphone that 8 in 10

of us have in our pockets# - delivering an

innovative programme in a novel, convenient

and accessible way via an app.

Get chatting

Ahead of the start date, a recipe book

and guidebook is mailed out and new

starters enjoy a one-to-one introductory

call with their coach so they can get to

know each other. New starters are asked

to take some preparatory steps including

reading articles, clearing cupboards of

ultra-processed foods and doing a food

shop (basic shopping list provided) to

make sure they are set up for success.

Each Monday, small groups of new

starters begin the programme together,

and via the app, can begin chatting with

their group and asking advice from their

health coach.

The health coaches themselves are

all registered nutritionists or dietitians,

and the nutritional advice they provide is

simple, effective and evidence-based. But

the health coaches also bring a valuable

human element to the programme:

an understanding, encouraging voice

when you're facing the challenges and

temptations that daily life throws your

way; or a friendly cheer when you have

had success.

Get learning

The 12-week OurPath programme is

tailored around individual needs and

is designed to equip participants with

new knowledge and skills. The health

coaches prompt and encourage their

groups to read the bite-size daily in-app

articles. These are designed to stimulate

conversation and questions about topics,

encouraging a deeper understanding of

how everyday habits and food choices

can be used to create meaningful

Could OurPath help change

your lifestyle, for good?
