Christmas is over and the New Year is here! However, you may feel the indulgences from the festive season are still hanging around – especially on your waistline. With the motivation of New Year’s resolutions urging you to take action, now is the perfect time to shed those extra kilos.
More Than Meets the Eye
Reaching and maintaining a healthy weight is not only about looking good – that’s just an added bonus! The real benefits come from minimising the risk of developing chronic conditions such as arthritis, depression, diabetes and heart disease, which are all associated with an increased percentage of body fat. While the long-term impacts of obesity are well known, what you might not realise is that being overweight can also affect your energy levels, making you feel tired and lacking vitality. By achieving a healthy weight, you give yourself the gift of increased energy and vitality to bounce into the New Year with gusto. You also set yourself up for health and wellness in the long-term.
Yo-Yo No More
If you have already tried a number of different weight loss strategies in the past without significant results, then you’re not alone. ‘Fad diets’ not only give varying results, but can also often lead to rebound weight gain. It is important to focus on healthy weight management and long-term health through lifestyle and nutrition. Monitoring and guidance from a Healthcare Professional will ensure you get the best results possible, and keep the weight off for good.
Kids Are No Exception
Childhood obesity has now become a serious health concern, affecting approximately one-quarter of children in Australia and New Zealand. With this in mind, it has never been more important to find options to support healthy weight in our children.
