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.

Nutrition Mission have been invaluable in giving me nutritional advice and sorting out any nutritional problems I have. Also they looked at my lifestyle and have gone out of their way to get advice and publications to me. I have had problems with insomnia, weight-gain problems and general lifestyle, so my nutritional therapist has given great information as to how to look at my daily diet coupled with my ailments, which supplements to take and while the laymen guesses at a lot of this Nutrition Mission have clearly shown me the way forward!
