BREAK FREE

Changing the way weight is perceived, spoken and thought about to help people BREAK FREE of the damaging misconceptions.

“It’s simple, just eat less and move more…”

How many times have you read this, heard this, thought this?

Well, the reality is that over 100 different factors influence weight including genes (how our bodies have evolved), environment (where and how we live) and mental health.

It’s time to challenge the outdated perceptions around weight. It's time to BREAK FREE from the stigma and seek help.
