Achieving and maintaining a comfortable, healthy body weight is generally considered to be a balancing act between the food and drink we consume and the amount of physical activity we do.
For many people it is so much more complex than that. It is very much like putting together parts of a complex jigsaw puzzle. You need to identify all the pieces of the puzzle before you can put them together in a way that is right for you.
Most of us know that if we eat less (or less of some foods!) and exercise more, we will lose weight. What most of us don't realise is that solving the puzzle of weight loss involves more than just these two factors.
Most people have tried to lose weight, often many times over many years, trying different diets and exercise plans, with varying levels of success or failure. If this sounds like you, you are not alone. Very few people who diet are able to keep that weight off, and research has confirmed this. 95% of dieters put their weight back on over a few years, and many will regain more.
DIETS DON'T WORK. In fact, many weight loss strategies aren't effective long term. Trying to lose weight with information on food or exercise, alone, is like trying to do a puzzle with only one or two pieces.
We are different. Advantage Healthcare and Physiotherapy want to help you piece together what is an individual, and often complex, puzzle that will help you to:
- Enjoy food without feeling guilty
- Increase your eating awareness
- Enjoy being active
- Achieve and maintain a healthy, comfortable weight for you, without being deprived of food or quality of life.
