Type 2 Diabetes

The Type 2 Diabetes Healthy Weight for Life™  Program is a specialised step by step chronic disease management program designed to maximise your overall health, vitality and quality of life by helping you Eat Better, Move Better and most importantly Be Better.

The ultimate aim of good diabetes management is to normalise your blood glucose levels to help avoid serious medical complications. Healthy eating, weight loss  for those that are overweight, physical activity as well as education, structure and  support are  paramount to this management.


The Type 2 Diabetes Healthy Weight For Life™ Program is designed to help with weight loss, energy balance and practical behaviour modifications.

All the elements of the program are carefully co-ordinated to help you learn and maintain important new habits for life.

The step by step program consists of 3 structured phases, run over 18 weeks. Each 6 week phase includes:

  • Portion control eating plan (including KicStart™ VLCD meal replacements) – this shows you how to select the right combination of food and drink in the right quantities, every day at every meal.
  • Activity plan – aiming to build up to at least 30 minutes of your favourite physical activity every day – this could be walking, cycling, swimming or even dancing or a combination.
  • Education – Carefully planned modules to build up knowledge and critical practical skills over time for making  behaviour and lifestyle changes that are going to stay with you.
  • Personalised online, progress and satisfaction tracking (phone and mail alternatives also available)
  • Monitoring and engagement – Personal motivation, support and advice  to help boost your confidence and motivation via phone, SMS, email, message board and post.


Your highly experienced Healthy Weight For Life™ Team (including a pharmacist, dietitian, occupational therapist, nurses and program navigators) are on hand to help you Be Better and achieve your goals.

We want to ensure you feel confident as you progress through the 18 weeks of the program and beyond.

We encourage multiple communication methods because we want to make it as easy as possible for us to stay in touch with each other – phone, email, SMS, online message board and mail.

We are available to help with any questions, to work through any difficulties, as well as to celebrate your successes along the way.
