Obesity

Obesity is described as the accumulation of excess fat to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health, leading to health problems and reduced life expectancy. Obesity is most commonly caused by a combination of increased intake of calories, reduced physical exercise and a genetic susceptibility. Being obese increases the individual's susceptibility to many diseases including heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, certain cancers, osteoarthritis, and sleep apnoea. Childhood obesity is associated with premature death and disability in adulthood.

Obesity is one of the most controllable conditions in western society, small changes add up to make a big difference.

Changes we can make include: increasing your physical activity - aiming for 30 minutes of regular, moderate intensive activity most days, increasing your consumption of fruit and vegetables, replacing refined carbohydrates; white bread, white rice and white pasta with complex carbohydrates; brown rice, brown bread and brown pasta, removing saturated fats and trans fats replacing them with essential fats found in oily fish, nuts and seeds, avocado and cold pressed oils e.g. olive, flax and hemp, limiting your intake of sugars.

At Nutrition Mission we will work with you to devise a healthy eating plan that allows you to make a difference to your life whilst still enjoying your food. We work with adults and children to prevent the chronic diseases associated with this reversible condition.
Back
I visited Nutrition Mission for both myself and my 3yr old daughter. I suffer with an arthritic hip and my daughter with eczema. Following a consultation with the nutritional therapist, they recommended supplements for us to take along with some dietary changes. After a couple of weeks there was a remarkable difference in both of us. Katie's legs were clear of her eczema and my hip virtually pain free! It is now some months since first seeing Nutrition Mission. Katie's legs remain clear and even during this very cold spell I am not suffering at all! I would like to take this opportunity to thank Nutrition Mission for all their help and can totally recommend nutritional therapy to all!
