Being overweight can put you at increased risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers. Obesity is one of the major health problems confronting people today in the UK and, unfortunately, it is on the increase.
Even losing a small amount of weight can make a big difference to your overall health and wellbeing. For example it can:
- Increase your energy levels
- Help you to move about more easily
- Reduce breathlessness
- Reduce joint pain
- Lower blood pressure and cholesterol
- Reduce the risk of diabetes and heart disease
Glycaemic index (GI)
Low GI foods cause minimal increase in blood sugar levels and doctors and nutritionists recognise that when you eat foods that have low GI the carbohydrates in the food are absorbed by your body at a relatively slow rate. This means that your feelings of hunger and food cravings can be reduced. Reducing the desire to eat to excess means you can have better control of your eating - and therefore your weight.
The high GI of some foods you may eat - such as fruit, bread, cereal or chocolate - means the carbohydrates they contain are absorbed by your body at a faster rate than that which occurs with low GI foods. But adding low GI foods to your meal can reduce your subsequent hunger cravings.
Lipotrim weight management foods have been specially formulated so that they provide you with a unique combination of high soluble fibre/low GI foods to help reduce your hunger pangs while providing the full range of nutrients your body needs for a normal, active life.
The average person uses little more than one Calorie a minute. When you think that a single biscuit can provide enough energy to power the body for well over an hour and a bar of chocolate, at around 300 calories, will normally sustain our energy needs for about five hours it’s very easy to eat more than your body actually needs.
Weight management requires control of your eating over a long period of time. Without control, weight gain is usually inevitable.
The hunger drive is perhaps the single most powerful biological instinct we have and the reason why weight gain is such a problem is that most people underestimate the strength of the drive to get food when food is restricted.
Losing weight is very similar to treating an addiction because, in effect, our bodies can act as if they are addicted to food.
The Lipotrim Weight Management Programme can give you the results you want, but you need to follow the programme strictly, and put aside any dieting preconceptions you may have from previous attempts to lose weight.
