Support During Pounds for Pounds

Kicking off our 30th Anniversary celebrations, our Pounds for Pounds programme is here to help benefit participants health, nutrition and fitness whilst raising money for our charity.  

Linda Munster, our nutritionist for the programme spoke to us about how she would be supporting each participant and looking at everyone’s individual needs to help everyone achieve the goals they want.  

For many years I ran nutrition and weight loss groups so when Peace Hospice Care approached me to support their Pounds for Pounds challenge, I agreed to help. I’m so pleased I did as it’s been one of the most rewarding things I’ve done as a nutritionist.  I’ve so enjoyed educating, motivating and inspiring Pounds for Pounds participants to lose weight and feel great.   

This will be my sixth year of supporting Pounds for Pounds, and although it will be online via Zoom, one thing we’ve learnt throughout this challenging year is that anything is possible.  So, I’ll be kicking off as usual with the best way to lose weight in a healthy, sustainable way – I’ll be showing some slides, there’ll be handouts and we’ll make it as interactive as possible so everyone feels comfortable with the programme.   No-one will ever feel alone and I’ll be available for questions after the sessions in the WhatsApp and Facebook groups. I am here to support everyone taking part, and understand that there is no one size fits all approach when it comes to losing weight and making life style changes. The aim of the programme is to promote a healthier life style, and we want to support everyone in every way we can to help them achieve this goal.”
