I must really congratulate the Healthy West African team for the Weight Loss for West Africans programme we have just completed. It was a very good format and very informative. I was able to lose some weight and thoroughly enjoyed the whole input of the complete course. Well done!
The facilitator was very good to us during the programme. It made me feel that even though I have a weight problem, I am still human. I will follow on from this and make positive changes.
An extremely interesting and informative course full of practical and useful advice.
Thanks. The sessions have been wonderful and I learnt a lot from them.
Thanks for the sessions, very useful information and well presented. Really informative with useful tips that will us improve our lifestyles.
Thank you very much for your well-informed sessions. The information provided is very helpful and will be used on my healthy nutrition journey.
Absolutely fantastic session with lots of useful information. Thank you 🙏 This awareness is much needed in our community.
The power of choice...very important. Thanks... very engaging and informative session. Great session; glad l attended.
The programme was much better than I expected… A lot of things have become clearer. It was exceptionally well-presented which made the whole topic interesting rather than boring. I have to say that it has given me the tools and confidence to carry on losing weight on my own!
Very comprehensive…Very useful information that is current, well organised and accessible. For healthcare professionals (particularly dietitians) working with this ethnic minority group or for West African people who are interested in diet and nutrition, this book would be ideal.
Angela's books have been invaluable in Southwark - filling a very big gap in knowledge on West African diet and lifestyle not only for health professionals who may not know much about West African culture and diet but also giving sound, realistic and culturally appropriate advice to people who would like to help themselves and their community. We have bought them in for our 'healthy lifestyle' project in local libraries.
At last! Clear, practical, guidance on how to make diet and lifestyle changes for healthier living, based on West African foods. These books are long overdue and Angela Tella is well qualified to provide the authoritative, practical information that can make change possible for anyone who enjoys West African foods – based on her professional knowledge and personal experience.
I believe Angela Tella has the answers to help the West African community eat healthier and become more active, whilst still maintaining cultural values. These books are the first of their kind and a must-read for every West African and anyone who enjoys West African cuisine.
As a world first, Angela Tella has written 2 books that could really make a difference to the health and wellbeing of people of West African origin. Weight Watchers believes that making diet and lifestyle changes that will last is all about making informed decisions – and these books will certainly help fill that knowledge gap.
Providing culturally appropriate material for West African communities is essential if we are going to begin to address the diet-related conditions that are particularly prevalent amongst these communities. Angela Tella’s publications fill a much-needed gap whilst embracing traditional practices and recipes.
