How does the diet programme work?
Diet and nutrition are essential elements of a successful health and fitness programme. It’s important to understand the impact that diet has on your performance and how to maintain a healthy diet. During your initial consultation, we will analyse your calorie and nutrient intake and health assessment. You will also be asked to complete a food diary for a week. We will evaluate how your diet compares with what you should be eating to achieve real results. From there, we will address your strengths and weaknesses and create a new day-today diet plan.
What is the safest type of weight loss diet?
Safe weight loss involves combining a reduced-calorie diet with physical activity to lose 0.5 to 2 pounds a week. Make healthy food choices. Eat small portions. Build exercise into your daily life. Combined, these habits may be a healthy way to lose weight and keep it off. These habits may also lower your chances of developing heart disease, high blood pressure, and type II diabetes.
Do fad diets help me lose weight and keep it off?
Fad diets are not the best way to lose weight and keep it off. These diets often promise quick weight loss if you strictly reduce what you eat or avoid some types of foods. Some of these diets may help you lose weight at first. But these diets are hard to follow. Most people quickly get tired of them and regain any lost weight. Fad diets may be unhealthy. They may not provide all of the nutrients your body needs. Also, losing 3 pounds or more a week and being on a diet of fewer than 1200 calories are unhealthy. Being on a diet of fewer than 800 calories a day for a long time may lead to serious heart problems.
Is it true that grain products such as bread, pasta, and rice are fattening and we should avoid them when trying to lose weight?
A grain product is any food made from wheat, rice, oats, cornmeal, barley, or another cereal grain. Grains are divided into two subgroups, whole grains and refined grains. Whole grains contain the entire grain kernel—the bran, germ, and endosperm such as brown rice and whole-wheat bread, cereal, and pasta. Refined grains have been milled, a process that removes the bran and germ. This is done to give grains a finer texture and improve their shelf life, but it also removes dietary fibre, iron, and many B vitamins. It was advised to making half your grains whole grains. However, to lose weight, you should reduce the number of calories you take in and increase the amount of physical activity you do each day. Create and follow a healthy eating plan that replaces less healthy options with a mix of fruits, veggies, whole grains, protein foods, and low-fat dairy
Is it true that some people can eat whatever they want and still lose weight?
To lose weight, you need to burn more calories than you eat and drink. Some people may seem to get away with eating any kind of food they want and still lose weight. But those people, like everyone, must use more energy than they take in through food and drink to lose weight. A number of factors such as your age, genes, medicines, and lifestyle habits may affect your weight. If you would like to lose weight, speak with our nutritionist about factors that may affect your weight. Together, we may be able to create a plan to help you reach your weight and health goals.
