Weight loss & General Health

Have you ever tried a weight loss program that worked for a friend but not for you? Or are you eating really well and exercising and the weight is still not shifting?

In cases like these it probably means that the weight loss diet you are using isn’t right for your metabolism but does suit you friend, or maybe the exercise program you are using is not at the correct intensity for you.

Let’s look at two simple examples, perhaps you are on a low fat diet, and it isn’t working, this would indicate that potentially you would function better on a diet that is higher in protein and fats than carbohydrate.

Or it might be the other way around for you and you might lose weight on a more vegetarian / carbohydrate diet.

What about exercise? If you are working really intensely, but at the same time you have a lot of stress in your life, your body may take the intense exercise as more stress and actually hold on to the weight in a protective manner, for future fuel!

A key component to digestive health is movement. Movement will cause either expansion or contraction of the body. There are many reasons we might gain weight – with the main causes being stress, disease, illness or injury – and quite often there is little we can do to combat it just by eating healthily. Instead, by addressing the internal, deeper issues within your body, an osteopath is able to guide you through and help you discover an effective, natural way to lose weight and stay healthy.
