In The Know: Metagenics Weight Management Program
Are you Overweight? Do you ever catch yourself thinking, "how did I end up here?", or maybe you are concerned about the impact it may have on your health. Perhaps you would feel happier with yourself if you lost those last few kilos.
You are not alone; three in five adults are overweight.
I have worked with the Metagenics Shake-It weight Management program since 2009. I run it as an initial 6 week program and most of my clients lose 6kgs in the first 6 weeks. I love this program as it is backed by science, based on real food and is designed to keep the weight off.
Shake It Science - Lowering the Metabolic ‘Set-Point’
Current evidence shows that your body has a metabolic weight ‘set-point’, which is influenced by many of the factors. For those who are overweight or obese, this set-point is higher, which can lead to difficulties in losing weight using dieting alone, or the swift regaining of weight following a diet regime. In order to successfully lose weight and keep it off, it is necessary to lower your body’s metabolic set-point.
The Shake It Program has been specifically designed to assist your body to lose weight and keep it off by making it simpler to adhere to a lower caloric intake, and also through addressing the lifestyle and behavioral factors that are typically neglected in weight loss diets. Once you have lowered your set-point, and reached your goal weight, the Shake It Program provides ongoing direction and guidance on how to maintain your new weight.
