Being overweight adds to the risk of being affected by many chronic diseases like Diabetes, High blood pressure and high cholesterol. Weight gain around the middle part of the body is associated with a high risk of these illnesses so it is important to try and be the best weight you can be. Being overweight may also increase the risk of nutritional deficiencies as many high energy foods have very low nutritional value.
Weight management is about balancing energy expenditure and energy intake. Energy intake is the food we consume. The main part of energy expenditure is our metabolism, which is the energy required to keep us alive. However, regular exercising is also an effective way of increasing our energy expenditure.
Our dietitian’s at The Nutrition Specialists can help you by analysing your dietary intake and help you to plan a healthy and nutritious diet that is manageable for you in your daily life.
