Welcome to Cornwall Can

So far an incredible 705 people have signed up losing an impressive… 

2073.24lbs SO FAR


Within the last decade, Cornwall has seen a sharp increase in type two diabetes and obesity related illness, putting enormous amount of strain not only on our health but that of the local NHS. In fact it is estimated, that 10 per cent of hospital admissions are related to both conditions. This figure is set to rise by 2035 and if we don’t act soon, future generations are looking at greater risks to health such as amputation surgery. Putting vast amount of strain on an already over stretched NHS. The worst part is…. Both conditions are preventable and we could help reduce the risk if we just took a little bit more control of our waist lines.

So back in June 2018, Cornwall Can went live with the small ambition to help the county of Cornwall lose weight with an aim to improve the lives and health of those signed up. We watched in amazement as over 500 people took part to lose weight, walking, increasing exercise, sharing recipes online under the hashtag #CornwallCan on social media. Despite not getting to the original target of 50,000lb the people of Cornwall proved to the rest of the UK that it can be done and together lost 2,000lb between them- a tremendous effort. 

Now heading into 2020, we want to build on the success, by getting more and more people involved across the county. Offering a unique online social movement whereby people can come together, share experiences, recipes and embrace the Cornish Community to encourage one another. Because lets face it, trying to lose weight alone, can be an uphill struggle.

This week we have been exploring the internet for simple recipes at home and came across these wonderful #maryberry fork biscuits!

Ingredients

100g (4oz) butter, softened
50g (2oz) caster sugar
150g (5oz) self-raising flour

(We added a small amount of vanilla and essence to the second batch just for a different flavour)

Follow the link here for the method and baking instructions. It’s very easy to make and great for the kids to get involved with too!

Good morning everyone, Laura here! I hope that you and your families are well at the moment!

As you maybe aware, we as a community are faced with a challenging couple of weeks and months ahead. There is a lot of anxiety, worry, stress and uncertainty surrounding covid19 and that is why our current focus needs to shift from weight loss to general health and wellbeing.

Please don’t worry this will not be a bombardment of official information (there is enough of that already online) but rather a change to service on our part.

Over the coming weeks we will be sharing recipes especially those that don’t require a lot of ingredients. To ensure that you can still make healthy food for yourselves and loved ones even if the supermarket shelf’s are empty.

Equally our focus on exercise won’t be for weight loss either but finding other methods, online resources and simple things that you can do from the comfort of your own home. The reason is simple, it helps to keep you physically and mentally well- an area that is particularly important when you can’t get out and about!

Also looking at running some online live chats and a virtual silent disco with the idea of socialising from a distance and also having a bit of fun (and maybe a gin)

I’d like to thank you for reading this. Please enjoy this wonderful picture of Cornwall! An please stay safe!
