It’s time for a new approach to weight loss!
The first UK dietary guidelines were launched in 1983, recommending a low fat diet for everyone. There was however NO EVIDENCE to support this blanket approach! The mainstream approach to dieting has been centred around two core principles: ‘fat is bad’ and ‘count your calories’. Since the introduction of this advice the prevalence of obesity has more than tripled to the current rate of 1 in 4 adults (27% of the population), with 63% of the UK population now classified as overweight!
The large number of people who have tried and failed to sustain weight loss through this approach shows it is time to try something new.
Why choose X-PERT Weight?
If you are struggling to lose weight, or if you have tried and failed countless diets, the nutrition and health experts at X-PERT Health may finally hold the answer as to why. The good news is, it is certainly NOT YOUR FAULT!
‘Eat less and exercise more’ is a weight loss message that may initially lead to weight loss but, at some point, you are guaranteed to hit a plateau – once you hit this brick wall, it’s very unlikely you will be able to knock it down or climb over it. This is because your metabolic rate slows down when calories are reduced. When you hit this brick wall, you will probably start eating at a ‘normal’ rate again after losing motivation and willpower. While your calorie intake increases back to where it was, your metabolic rate will stay low for a while (for up to a year!) so the chances are, you will regain all the weight you have lost; and maybe even more! This is the infamous diet cycle so many people experience…..
Steering away from this traditional weight loss message, X-PERT Weight instead focuses on the latest scientific evidence. We explore how to effectively achieve and sustain weight loss through controlling the hormones that regulate appetite and fat storage. Other factors that affect weight such as stress, sleep, gut bacteria and metabolism are also covered. The programme supports participants in adopting a Low Carb, Mediterranean or Intermittent Fasting dietary approach to meet their goals.
X-PERT Weight is a 12 week programme, offered via either structured group sessions or via a web app. When you register on a programme you will receive a 200-page Resource Folder packed full of nutrition and health information, support tools, tips, practical suggestions, recipes, food diary templates and much much more. Sessions are delivered using digital technology to support interactive discovery learning to help you understand the science behind why traditional weight loss approaches have failed and what you can do to lose weight and keep it off!
