Costing statement

The guideline on maintaining a healthy weight and preventing excess weight gain is not expected to have a significant resource impact. The recommendations in the guideline are intended to support other NICE guidelines on effective interventions and activities that prevent people becoming overweight or obese. Preventing a small increase in weight gain at a population level may avoid significant future costs. Implementing this guideline will support or improve the achievement of savings identified in previous guidelines.
