Why Weight Ireland FAQ

Why Weight Mission Statement


What is Why Weight Ireland®?

Why Weight Ireland® is a unique and award winning weight loss and fitness business. Until 2018 we offered members access to Ireland’s only fully comprehensive online food & exercise diary, online personal fitness workouts, personal & tailored fitness plans and full email support 7 days a week, all at a lower cost that any of our competitors. Why Weight Ireland also runs a fitness & weight loss studio in Tinahely, Co. Wicklow.
In 2018 Why Weight Ireland decided to alter its business model and ended offering access to its Online Food Diary and will be updating its business model throughout 2018.

Can I get trained personally by Hannah in running, fitness or even for private weightloss?

Before Hannah lost almost 8 stone in weight she never exercised and since losing her weight she took up running and has gone on to become a County Champion runner. Hannah runs at all distances including full marathons – 26.2 Miles. Her goal is to get a marathon time of Sub 3 hours.

Due to work schedules Hannah can only have a very limited number of personal clients. She does accept clients for any needs, be-it running, fitness, strength training, weight loss, confidence building etc.

  • If you are taking any medication such as steroids or immunosuppressants, this can affect the test – we need to know how long you have been taking the medication and at what dosage. Please click here to read more about taking steroids or immunosuppressants and our food tolerance test.

Will you create a food plan for me?

The reason that Why Weight Ireland works is because you don’t have to follow a set plan. You get to eat your own food. Following a set food plan is just not sustainable. If you require an example of what a typical food diary would look like and see how much food you can actually eat, then as a member, please drop us an email and we can send you a 7 day food plan example.
People are shocked to see that they can actually eat A LOT of food when making the right choices.
