Winning Weigh is an NHS Tayside free interactive, friendly and fun-filled healthy lifestyle weight management programme for anyone who is overweight and who wants to do something about it.

Winning Weigh is aimed at people with a Body Mass Index of 25 but less than 35, with no obesity related co-morbitities (Diabetes, CHD, Hypertension, Sleep Apnoea).
