Sustainable Weight Loss Q&A With Amelia Phillips
In our recent event, 'Sustainable Weight Loss', we received an abundance of questions, so many that we ran out of time to get to them all! In this article, our event speaker, Amelia Phillips, took the time to answer the questions that were missed during the event.
Small Lifestyle Adjustments Can Save Your Life
Many chronic diseases today are also referred to as ‘lifestyle diseases’, as they are often influenced by unhealthy lifestyles. The good news is that the reverse is also true – lifestyle improvements can significantly reduce the risk of chronic disease.
Finding hard to manage your weight in your 40s? You are not alone
Weight gain after 40 is natural. However, you can take action to adjust your habits and counteract the effects ageing has on your body.
Inflammation & Body Weight: The Hidden Link
Sometimes our efforts at the gym don't pay off as we thought they would. Managing your diet and exercise schedule may not be enough, as inflammation may be continuously hindering your weight loss efforts.
Is your lifestyle making you age faster?
You undoubtedly know your age, the number of years that have passed since you were born. But do you know your biological age? Also known as physiological or functional age, biological age differs from chronological age because it considers the gradual accumulation of damage to various cells and tissues in the body. In summary, your body may be younger or older than the years you have been on this planet!Your biological age is influenced by your lifestyle, genetics, chronological age, and certain diseases. While the passing of time is out of our control, it is possible to manage how our body ages through lifestyle improvements.
Is inflammation preventing you from losing weight?
Weight Loss, as many other initiatives we may take to improve our health, tend to be more efficient if taken holistically. Looking at your diet and and exercise may seem the most intuitive approach, however, many studies indicate you should also manage inflammation to ensure your weight loss efforts brings the results you wish for. Recent studies have shown that although exercise and diet management are efficient weight loss tools, it will not be effective if your body is fighting inflammation. Inflammation knocks the body out of balance. A healthy lifestyle is key to returning back to equilibrium.
