Who can help?
There are lots of people who may be able to help you manage your weight after cancer treatment
Tell your family and friends what you’re doing and ask them to support you. They might even join you in your exercising, which can encourage you and is good for them too.
Your doctor or nurse can advise you on your ideal weight or put you in touch with a dietitian. If you find that you’re struggling, your GP may refer you to an NHS weight loss clinic.
You can find more information on local exercise groups at your local library, healthy living centre, community centre or leisure centre. Or search online or in the phone book.
These can be a good way to meet other people who can encourage and support you.
Weight loss programmes should be based on a balanced, healthy diet, with regular physical activity and weight loss of no more than 0.5–1kg (1–2lb) a week.
