There are a number of reasons why diets in the past have not worked:
• They are often unbalanced and do not meet your nutritional requirements so you are left feeling hungry, which can lead to over eating later on
• They may not fit in with your particular lifestyle
• They often set unrealistic standards and are not sustainable in the long term, despite being effective in the short term
• They may have required you to avoid certain food groups leaving you with the risk of developing vitamin and mineral deficiencies
• They often allow you to lose a significant amount of weight in the early stages, which then plateaus off causing you to lose motivation, reverting back to old habits.
Healthy living is a long journey, we will work with you to set realistic and achievable goals and provide you with the support to help you achieve those goals through individual eating and lifestyle plans. We will teach you to understand and read your own body, hunger and satiety cues as well as equip you with crucial skills that allow you to make educated food choices in the long run.
