5% Less offers a structured, evidenced based healthy lifestyle programme for Dietitians wanting to help their patients successfully lose weight.

Developed by a Dietitian and GP, the programme is simple, sensible and easy to follow, and is based around eight sessions over which key information to aid weight loss can be delivered.

Its success has been proven in NHS Wandsworth where it has reduced weight in 78% of patients over an 18 month period. It was so well received by both patients and staff it continues to be the core of the community weight management services within Wandsworth borough.
