Weight Management / Maintenance

As seasons change, so do our waistlines. It’s always good to get back into your routine, start fresh, and maintain the weight that makes you feel great!

Weight Management / Maintenance

Here are a few tips to get you back on track:
1. Create a customized meal plan

– Whether you are looking to maintain a healthy body weight or shed a few extra pounds, a dietician is qualified to assist you or simply ask our dietician.

2. Get active!

– The benefits of exercise go much further than fitting into your favourite pair of jeans. Aim for 30 minutes of physical activity at least three days a week; Exercise is good for your heart, muscles and bones. Too busy for exercise? Try breaking the 30 minutes down to 3 blocks of 10 minutes each and remember walking to the car and talking the stairs count towards your 30 minute goal.

3. Don’t starve yourself

– Going long periods without food can lead to over-indulging later in the day. Keep your metabolism strong by snacking throughout the day on healthy foods such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains; aim to eat every 3 hours.

4. Make water your new best friend

Water is not only cheap and easily accessible; it also fills you up, keeps you hydrated and helps flush waste products from your body. Bored of regular water? Try flavoured or carbonated water with a wedge of lemon or lime! Aim to drink at least 8 cups (2 litres) daily.

5. Fight cravings the healthy way

– Power past that afternoon craving by drinking water, taking a walk, or calling a friend to talk; distraction is key! If your craving overpowers the distraction try choosing healthier snack alternatives such as strawberries, low fat cheese, or popcorn. Your body will thank you later!
