This is a personalised plan for adult weight management:
- Body Composition Analysis,
- Truncal obesity assessment (trunk fat, visceral fat, waist circumference),
- Blood Glucose and Lipid Profile,
- Resting Metabolic Rate,
- Energy Balance Equation,
- Diet & Activity Plan.
Our weight management program is based on the measurement of the Resting Metabolic Rate, and the calculation of the Energy Balance Equation. The energy balance refers to the daily energy surplus or deficit resulting from the amount of energy intake through food and drinks, and the amount of energy expenditure through metabolism and daily activity level. The equation allows to vary the calories from diet and the daily activity level in order to reach your weight management goal over a given period of time. This type of planning is based on calories counting method. An accurate Lifestyle assessment it is very important in order to build the weight management plan. It is helpful to keep a food and activity diary for a week on an average week, using a personal activity tracker and a calorie counting app on your mobile.
We can work with any type of preferential diet, however we recommend a varied diet type over the narrow specialist ones or meal replacements, to cover all the nutrient requirements, and a gradual weight loss over time using medium calorie diets over the low/ultra-low ones (crash diets) for rapid weight loss. We also advise on intermittent fasting, as an alternative to dieting.
Our Weight Management Plan is not a supervised program. It requires implementation in one’s daily life and consistency in following it, for the duration of the program. We recommend employing either a Nutritionist or a Fitness Instructor to supervise the implementation of the weight management program in real life. For the more confident, we advise on how to self-monitor the progress, and what connected health devices to use for this purpose, in order to self-implement the weight management plan.
