'WEIGHT LOSS'.....should actually be referred to 'FAT LOSS'
Losing 'weight' on the scales without knowing if you are losing fat, fluid or muscle is a common mistake made by many in an effort to look better and feel healthier.
Did you know that muscle actually weighs more than fat, so if you are using scales to gauge your fat loss, you will only being seeing half the picture.
A healthy 'weight loss' program should include a muscle gain component, because muscle helps your body to burn fat, preventing you from storing fat as easily, whilst slowing the bodies rate of ageing.
When patients attend my clinic for a consultation to 'lose weight' each is referred for specific pathology testing to assess the function of all their body systems at a cellular level, as opposed to merely assessing their health against a disease state, in the case of conventional pathology tests. I combine these tests with a BIO IMPEDANCE TEST, used to accurately measure fat vs muscle mass and fluid, in addition to hydration and toxicity levels. These bio markers combined, provide a true indication of a patients CELLULAR AGE as opposed to just their physical age. Your cell age can change if you lose body fat, gain muscle mass and reduce toxicity levels.
There can be many factors contributing to weight gain and sluggish metabolism, above and beyond simply eating too much of the wrong foods. Whilst this is the most common contributing factor to being over weight, most people are serioulsy confused and mislead about what actually constitutes healthy eating, due to so much misleading advertising and media reports.
In an attempt to lose weight, many people resort to going on a low fat, low calorie diet and engage in a high cardio exercise regime......all good stuff.....until initial 'weight loss' starts to plateau and the hunger pangs and food restrictions over power will power, leading to a relapse in bad eating once more.
What people do not factor into their weight loss regime is the impact hormonal imbalances and poor liver function has on weight gain. They also cut out good fats in an effort to lose weight. It is these good fats that actually makes you skinny!
There is no need to go hungry in an attempt to lose weight and food can still taste great and include treats and you should never go on a 'diet' to achieve your goal weight, but instead learn how to eat healthy food for life.
My health and wellbeing programs begin with a thorough pathology assessment to gain insight into your digestive function and hormone levels. These tests are then used to compose an individualised treatment program using specific nutrients and herbs in combination with teaching you how to eat healthy, yummy food. Together with regular fat burning exercise, this approach will see you losing body fat, gaining muscle and slowing the ageing process whilst feeling and looking great.
