The science behind Ten Top Tips

The scientifically-based programme involves adopting ten simple steps and using a weekly checklist over eight weeks to monitor progress and help reinforce the new habits.


The set of scientifically-based guidelines is designed to help people adopt healthy habits that can be sustained for long-term weight maintenance. Based on psychological theories of habit formation, these easy-to-follow tips can be incorporated into people's everyday routines without major lifestyle change. A key part of successfully losing weight on the programme is using a simple 'tick sheet' tracking tool which accompanies the tips and has been shown to help behaviour change.
