Anne Prince attended Weight Off Workshops run by Health Champions in Burgess Hill. These included our Cookery Champions courses focused on weight loss. Anne said that this course promoted her to change her diet and lifestyle "for good". Anne said:
"I lost weight on the course and also learnt to eat more healthily. I used to mainly eat ready-meals and things out of tins, but now I am preparing my own food. I have more energy and feel healthier. This course sets you on the road to eat the right things – for me it's been a change for life. Homemade food is also better for you and cheaper."
