NHS & Slimpod trial

More than 50 patients in Denton, Manchester – many with diabetes – took part in a 12-week trial designed to help them shed pounds and significantly improve their health. The results found an average weight loss of 20lb and:

• 72 per cent reported a decrease in appetite

• 65 per cent said they have more energy and are more mobile

• 57 per cent described a rise in levels of confidence and less anxiety.

The study is an initiative between Tameside and Glossop Integrated Healthcare Trust and the creators of Slimpod, a clinically proven system that retrains the brain, via an app, to change people’s eating habits to make healthier choices, eat less and move more.
