The key to successful weight loss is to focus on a comprehensive healthy lifestyle approach rather than being on a “diet or fad diet”. This will improve the psychological impacts of healthy eating, whilst avoiding the unappealing phenomenon known as the “diet merry go round”. A healthy and sustainable weight loss approach aims to achieve a minimum of 0.5kg to 1kg of weight reduction per week, with a greater emphasis placed on waist measurement reduction. Gradual, ongoing weight loss will provide significant benefits for your weight and your well-being . Rather than making radical changes to existing eating habits, we believe that the key is to create gradual life-long changes that suit your taste and lifestyle, whilst maintaining all your nutritional requirements.
