Weight Loss Programmes
Ever wonder why it is so tough to lose weight? Maybe not getting that muscle tone you wanted even though you are working out? It could be what and when you are eating... As it has been said, “We are what we eat!”
But you are not alone. In the UK, 42% of males and 32% of females were classified as overweight in 2010 according to their body mass index. We did not get to this point overnight, so why do we think we can make healthy changes and lose weight overnight. Also, only 1/4 of us are eating our 5 a day. There is help to overcome these statistics and small changes can add up. If you reduce your alcohol intake by only one per day, you can lose a pound per month and this can add up to one stone in a year! Or add a little physical activity in there such as taking the stairs instead of the lift or walking to work instead of the bus and this weight loss can double and reach your goal in half the time. Other help can be having dinner on a small side plate instead of the that dinner plate. That way you still finish your plate as your mum used to say, but you are eating less.
Susan can help. She has a Masters in Obesity and over 20 years of experience in helping people lose and maintain their weight. She can design a personalised programme for you. This could include a Personal Trainer (such as Ellie Lock), DNA diet testing, Elipse Balloon Therapy and Nutrition Counselling. Counselling is bespoke and the programme is designed together suiting your personal needs in mind. This can include: Meal Plans, specific diets and goal setting to help you reach your full potential.
