Holistic Weight Management with Jacqueline Lovett
Being overweight can lead to a range of health problems like heart disease, diabetes and some cancers. Think of weight loss as a means to living a better and fulfilling life with habits that last you your lifetime.
When it comes to weight loss, eating a diet full of nutrient dense foods is paramount. Nutrient foods are those that offer the most nutrients but with minimal caloric intake. This is important during weight loss as it allows you to control your caloric intake whilst still obtaining all the essential vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and macro nutrients your body requires in order to function properly. By replacing nutrient empty foods with nutrient dense foods, not only will weight loss start to occur, but energy levels will increase, concentration will be at its peak, hunger should subside and overall promotion of immunity and longevity should result.
Weight loss is never going to be a quick fix, it involves 100% commitment and lifelong changes to enhance and promote good health and longevity.
4 nutrition tips to get you started:
- Replace margarine, low fat spreads, hydrogenated fats and vegetable oils with coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, flaxseed oil, ghee, and full fat organic butter
- Replace processed breakfast cereals with home-made muesli, eggs, avocado, protein smoothies, nuts and seeds
- Replace supermarket snacks with nuts, seeds, vegetables, fruits and homemade nutrient dense snacks
- Replace processed peanut butter with tahini and pure nut spreads
