Weight Loss Programme

Weight Loss Programme

Excess weight has been linked with several deadly diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and cancer. It has also been associated with such embarrassing situations as inability to conceive, stress incontinence (urine coming out whenever you cough) and “sleeping and snoring on duty”. The World Health Organization estimates that excess weight is responsible for 3% of all deaths in African countries like Nigeria, amounting to 2.6 million deaths every year; while the Federal Road Safety Corps ranks “dozing off while driving” as one of the most common causes of road traffic accident in Nigeria.

Most of the health and social problems associated with excess weight can be resolved with the loss of just 10% of a person’s current weight, especially if the weight loss is achieved gradually with a low calories diet and increased physical activity.

The required weight loss is best achieved through a packaged Weight Loss Programme. The best Weight Loss programmes, according to experts at Mayo Clinic in the United States have the following features:

  • They do not forbid the eating of certain foods or food groups, but instead emphasize low-calories such as vegetables and fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, lean protein sources, and nuts and seeds — and even an occasional sweet indulgence.
  • They recommend a balanced, but low-calories diet, to prevent deficiencies in protein, minerals and vitamins.
  • They recommend diets that are based on the local staples, and other readily available foods.
  • They recommend diets that are delicious enough for the client to want to eat the food all through his/her life, not only during the duration of the weight loss programme.
  • They recommend increased physical activity, not as the main method of achieving the weight loss, but as a means of improving the body’s metabolism to burn off the excess weight, and provide the motivational drive for success.
  • They are slow and steady, requiring the client to lose not more than 2kg a week, throughout the period of the Weight Loss Programme.
