🍎 Case Study: Kate's story

For Healthy Eating Week we spoke to Kate West to find out what she has learnt from attending Fit Robins.

Healthy Eating Week is an annual event created by the British Nutrition Foundation (BNF). It's a week to celebrate healthy living and encourage people to change their lifestyles positively.

Before joining Fit Robins, Kate often fluctuated from eating healthy one week to not the next. She knew what it meant to live a healthy lifestyle but found it difficult to follow. 

💬 "I enjoy food and socialising, the session has taught me that I can still eat the things I love but in moderation. It's ok to treat yourself once in while but important to make sure that it doesn't turn into a week of indulgence. 

"It's been nice meeting other people who are in the same boat as me so you don't feel alone. We have created a Whatsapp group to encourage one another and share healthy recipes we find. We have formed a good community and to get that support really helps.

"I have realised that this is not just a diet for a 12-week period but a lifestyle change." 

Kate has had a few health scares over the years and was reluctant to do any exercise as she didn't know the impact that it would have on her. However, since joining Fit Robins she has tested herself and found that she has been able to join in with the sessions.



What is Fit Robins?

Fit Robins is a completely free health programme for men and women aged 30-65 who are looking to lose weight, get fitter and lead a more active life.

Delivered in partnership with the EFL Trust and Public Health England, FIT ROBINS aims to help City fans make changes to their lifestyles in order to live fitter and healthier lives. The programme achieves this by helping participants:

  • Improve their eating habits by reducing portion sizes and swapping fatty and sugary foods for fruit, vegetables and high-fibre foods
  • Achieve at least 45 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity on most days of the week. They receive weekly exercise sessions at their club for 12 weeks and follow a personal pedometer-based walking programme that encourages them to fit physical activity into their daily lives
  • Use tried-and-tested behaviour change techniques to become more active and improve their diet. These include regular self-monitoring of their weight and pedometer step counts and setting SMART goals to make changes that can be sustained long term.
