CONDITIONS WE CAN HELP WITH...

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.

Using the service of Nutrition Mission has been a god send. I've gained the confidence to enjoy food again, instead of viewing it as the enemy and restricting certain food types. I'm also dealing with menopause and all the traumor that brings to women. Thanks Nutrition Mission, I'm sure I would have pulled all my hair out by now without your help.
