New Paradigm for Health?
The Weight is Over
Changing the paradigm
Until now, especially over the last 40 or 50 years, the weight loss industry has relied on this simple equation:
If Calories IN exceeds Calories OUT - weight gain results.
We now know this to be an oversimplification. There are many more “X-factors” involved in maintaining healthy weight, and simply reducing calories and/or increasing activity will not necessarily result in sustainable weight loss and control.
Types of food eaten (including macro and micronutrient quality and character), hormone balance (including, but not limited to insulin activity and metabolism), age, gender, socioeconomic status, chromic illness, psychological state, spirituality, type of activity, career satisfaction and even the quality of our relationships all play important roles in calorie intake and expenditure as well as the proper utilization of nutrients.
All these factors, and many more, must be integrated into a successful weight management program, in order to achieve specific individual goals.
This is exactly why Integrative Nutrition counseling can be extremely helpful in achieving short and long term heath goals in today’s complicated world. We, at MONACO Wellness, can help you wade through this complicated Wellness environment, where we are bombarded with mountains of health and wellness information every day. How do we know what to believe and follow?
The key is there is no “one size fits all” universal right answer to living a healthy life. We embrace the individual approach to integrate the unique aspects of YOUR life with YOUR personal wellness goals. You owe to yourself to give it a try. Call today for a free MONACO Wellness consultation.
