Nutritional Guidance for Weight Management & Sports Performance
At the Active Healthcare Practice, we can provide you with not only expert nutritional advice, but also equip you with the tools you need for your long-term weight management.
We now live in a world where barely a day passes without the constant bombardment of new and conflicting information regarding what we should eat, how we should exercise and how we must curb calorie intake to avoid the modern obesity epidemic.
Weight management is a multi-billion-pound industry. It is an industry that showers the media and magazines with impossible body images of how we should look. They use slim models and airbrushed images. Celebrities show off their weight loss and encourage readers to buy the latest slim shake or meal bar.
Motivation will help you lose weight. Maintaining that ideal weight long-term requires a lifestyle change!
In the real world, most of us have very busy lives both at work and home and finding the energy to add in additional exercise or prepare nutritionally balanced meals can be a real struggle.
Being either underweight or overweight can affect your physical and psychological wellbeing and both carry an equally large number of risks. There are a large number of factors, which can contribute towards your weight. These range from the very obvious diet and lifestyle, through to hereditary factors and hormonal abnormalities. Regardless of the factors, which are currently determining your weight, it should ideally be within a healthy range for your height and age.
At The Active Healthcare Practice, our approach is to tailor a programme that is unique for you. We take into account all the things that have led to your weight gain and we will guide you through the transformation into a healthier lifestyle. We will equip you with the tools to help you make more informed choices over your diet and help you kick those unhealthy habits that might pull you back into the same old patterns that only lead to failure, demotivation and old damaging thoughts that its not worth it, that there is nothing you can do to control your weight.
Long term weight loss and improved health can only be achieved through a combination of exercise and diet. Improved self-image is a by-product of the healthy habits that we help you create. Your personalised nutritional plan will fit in with your lifestyle, and with a balanced nutrition through everyday, affordable foods, you’ll never go hungry. The right nutrition will help control your cravings, you will be able to stick to it and keep the weight off, for good.
