Weight Control

EXTEND YOUR LIFE WITH PROPER WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

  • Excess weight has reached epidemic proportions globally, with more than 1 billion adults being either overweight or obese.
  • Increases have been observed across all age groups.
  • If you are even slighly overweight, you have a higher amountof body fat than is healthy or desirable.

Excessive weight may have an adverse effect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy and/or increased health problems, particularly heart disease, type 2 diabetes, breathing difficulties during sleep, certain types of cancer, and osteoarthritis.

Healthy eating is about feeling great, having more energy, and keeping yourself as strong as possible – all of which can be achieved by learning some nutrition basics and using them in a way that works for you. It is critically important to follow good diet, to feel full of energy and stay in good mood after meals.  Any uncomfortable physical signs, such as heartburns or stomach aches, are signals to change your eating habits, as well as any unpleasant aftertastes.

The complementary and alternative medicine can be very helpful in resolving excessive weight problems. There are therapies which are successful in treating weight problems. They include acupuncture, yoga, meditation, massage, and special exercise programs. Nutritionist plays an important role in building the personalized weight loss program, teaching you about healthy eating and systematic physical activity and exercises in order to stay healthy and live longer.

There are too many people today who have weight problems. Usually, they are eating to maintain their poor self esteem and/or to overcome their life problems. Eating feels good, it brings comfort and supports false feeling of achievement.

Aside from the health risks and medical consequences, psycological, emotional and social problems contain a serious burden in their own right.  There is a strong link between overweight conditions and difficulty in experiencing emotions, psycological problems
and depression. People fear that emotions, unpleasant thoughts will overwhelm or even destroy them.

What are the feelings that people commonly suppress through overeating? Anxiety and nervousness are common reasons, and it is almost a cliche in today's society to say "I eat when I'm depressed". Many eat to suppress anger or frustration, and food is often a dear friend to those who are alone and lonely.  Unwanted or unfulfilled sexual feelings may be the target of suppression by overeating, as well as feelings of career or relationship unfulfillment. Suppression of any feeling or conflict that has been chronically present, for a period of years or even over the course of one's entire lifetime, may be the cause of chronic overweight or obesity.

Aside from what is mentioned above complementary and alternative therapies for weight control, there is another successful one: NLP (Neuro Linquistic Programming). NLP techniques will teach how to feel wonderful anytime and give a sense of connection to family, friends, community, world and universe.

  • Imagine the sensory rich 3D image of yourself being already slim, step into your body and remember what you see and feel.
  • Recall this vivid picture often, and try to carry it with you wherever you go.
  • Even if it sounds easy, most people need guidance, support and feedback to achieve any results and continue slimming behavior.
