A weight loss programme might sound like a boring way to tackle excess fat but weight loss is only the beginning a journey towards a healthy relationship with food and an improved quality of life. Yes, there are loads of diets out there with enticing promises but one single truth remains… the way in which you lose excess weight is also the way in which you will have to keep it off. Going back to pre-diet eating behaviour will, without doubt, cause weight gain. Maintaining weight loss requires nutrition education and support.
One of the most important goals to achieve when losing weight is to maintain or gain lean muscle mass. Rapid weight loss or extreme calorie restriction often results in the unwanted loss of muscle mass and water. As we age we are losing muscle mass and this is the reason for reduced mobility, strength, independence and ultimately quality of life in the elderly. Accelerating natural muscle loss is likely to accelerate the aging process, the cost of which is not worth the short-term weight loss.
Opting to lose weight with healthy eating and a more active lifestyle may seem like the scenic route but it is the most successful route. Adopting lifelong healthy eating habits will ensure that the lost weight stays off. Working with a dietitian toward a weight loss goal is better than conforming to a rigid eating plan, lacking in variety and flexibility. Learning to eat well, shop well and cook well is an important part of the process while following nutrition advice that will suit the whole family rather than making separate meals is a recipe for success.
