Many people attempting to lose weight are motivated by improving the way they look, and that is great, but there are many more life-changing benefits than this and many come well before your goal weight is achieved.
- Diabetics typically see improved insulin sensitivity.
- Heart patients often see improvements in heart strength and efficiency, and lowering of blood pressure.
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) sufferers usually notice a lessening of symptom as well as a decrease in their risk of Metabolic Syndrome, Type 2 Diabetes, and Hypertension.
- Aspiring mothers may see improvements in fertility. The elderly generally experience a reduction in falls and an increase in independence.
There are often also improvements in mood, self-esteem and body image.
All of this leads to a longer, healthier, more enjoyable life, and quite often a reduction in medications.
It won’t be just your life you’ll be improving either, just by adopting these healthier behaviours you have a greater chance of your children adopting the same, which means they won’t be looking at a future of poor health and low self-esteem.
It takes most people 3-7 attempts to successfully lose weight!
However, they need to find the right program. Our program provides social support, lifestyle counselling, and education, as these are essential for long term success! Of most importance, is learning how to deal with stressful situations, and learning behaviours that deal with potential issues before they arise.
