Help to lose weight

Many people with lung disease get breathless, and as a consequence believe they cannot exercise (which as you will see elsewhere in our website actually is not the case).

As a consequence of exercising less, and eating too much, weight gain occurs. This results in even more breathless!

We'd like to help you with this, so we hope the You Tube video provides "food for thought" (pun intended), and the information below might also be useful to you.
