When embarking on your own weight loss journey it is important to remember that there is more to losing weight than simply eating the right foods. The type of foods an individual eats is just one part – an important part – but still just one part of losing and maintaining a healthy weight. Think of healthy eating as one slice of a pie or one part of a larger whole. When all the different parts of this whole are understood, anyone can begin to make meaningful lifestyle change.
The seven remaining pieces – or pie slices – of weight loss are:
- Thyroid Hormones
- The Stress Hormone Cortisol
- The Fat Storage Hormone Insulin
From reviewing the above, it’s clear that our hormones play a massive role in weight loss, weight management and lifelong weight maintenance.
Our weight loss programs are designed around proven strategies to make sure an individual’s hormones are balanced and in harmony with the body and mind.
As our bodies change so too must our diet. When we reach our 40s, it’s important to switch to a low GL (glycaemic load) diet designed to balance blood sugar levels. This doesn’t mean we have to give up the foods we love, in fact, a diet based around maintaining a healthy blood sugar level likely contains foods you already enjoy; including meat, fish, eggs, avocados and beans.
These foods and more, are all part of a healthy diet that’s complemented with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables.
A stressful lifestyle takes a toll on both body and mind and can leave an individual feeling tired and miserable.
No weight loss or wellness program is complete without strategies to assist individuals in optimising their sleeping patterns and making time for self-care.
