We put Second Nature's healthy living app to the test


Posted on August 29th, 2022 by Luisa Gatward

Second Nature was founded by Chris and Mike in 2015. They met while working as advisors to the NHS, where they saw the impact of lifestyle diseases on both people and health services first-hand.

They realised the real challenges of living a healthy lifestyle weren’t being solved. They believed there had to be a better way to make healthy living the default. They quit their jobs and used science and behaviour change to build Second Nature.

How many diets have you been on in the past? Most mainstream diets are designed to fail. They pull us into a cycle of dieting that’s difficult to break free from. Second Nature is different. They believe they are the last weight loss programme you’ll ever need to go on, because it actually works. You’ll lose weight and keep it off for good.

Lose weight without losing out. Discover a sustainable way to lose weight and keep it off — used by the NHS.

How does it work?

Your Second Nature programme is delivered through their app. Get the support you need to build and maintain healthy habits in the long term.

No counting – The only programme where you don’t have to track everything that you eat.

Delicious food – Hundreds of delicious recipes developed by qualified nutritionists to keep you feeling fuller for longer.

Your own personal nutritionist – You’ll get the right advice from a qualified professional, there to support you at each stage of your journey.

We loved the sound of this healthy living app and were delighted to test it for ourselves.

Our lovely Alexandra downloaded the Second Nature app and put it to the test. This is what she had to say about it:

Second Nature has been an incredible learning curve for me in the area of weight loss and nutrition. Prior to signing up I had not experienced the notion of group discussion when it came to topics like this, and it really made me more comfortable to share my own weekly thoughts and experiences around my meal plans and progress.

The recipes section of Second Nature was so useful – as I was particularly struggling to keep cooking new meals at home that could also provide good nutrition. The cherry on the top was the optional payment amount for the first two trial weeks. I thought that really made it accessible to all and was something I hadn’t seen before.

I am continuing to use Second Nature regularly, and dipping into the recipes section every week. I would really recommend this to anyone who wants to focus on their food and weight but hasn’t experienced a calm space to do so before. The group support and relaxed check-ins really help to reduce stress and anxiety around all-or-nothing updates.
