Healthy Weight "Plan to Succeed" Program
The Standard American diet ( SAD) has been implicated in the growing health and weight challenges that many people are facing today. There is a vast and confusing array of dietary theories that promise fast and lasting weight reduction, yet despite multiple attempts, many people continue to struggle with managing their weight. For many, this is repeatedly felt as a personal, ongoing failure.
Excess weight is a significant risk factor for many chronic, preventable diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, stroke and arthritis. I have seen first hand how excess weight complicates and exacerbates all forms of arthritis. For example, for every 10 pounds of excess weight carried there is a corresponding increase of 30-50 pounds felt across the knee joint during normal walking!
I have studied many dietary approaches from modern day" Atkins"," Blood type" to "Paleo", "Raw" and "Vegan". There are simply too many types of "diets" to mention here. There is only one common thread, and that is, there is never a "one size fits all" approach. Also, you will rarely succeed based on deprivation and will power alone. There are changes in the biology of the body and brain that need to be considered if we are to master lasting change. We are uniquely different in our physical, psychological and biochemical make up and therefore must respect and honor our individual differences.
"Let food be thy medicine", are the wise words of Hippocrates. The food we eat turns into our blood chemistry, this directly impacts our mind, body and spirit and ultimately our health. If you are ready to find a kinder, holistic solution to weight management and begin nourishing your body, mind and spirit, I can help you get started.
