Will you be heathier, or sicker, one year from now?
We have all made our resolutions for the year… what did yours include?
Better eating? Improved health? Exercise? Where are you right now with your goals?
The first step is always the hardest! We don’t like change, in fact we resist it as our old habits take over. But it’s amazing how a little change can make a HUGE difference.
According to the World Health Organization, “overweight and obesity are the fifth leading risk for global deaths. At least 2.8 million adults die annually from being overweight, 44% from diabetes, 23% from heart disease, and between 7% and 41% of certain cancers are attributed to being overweight or obesity”. Many of these deaths are preventable if we take ownership of our health, and strive to improve it. You made that resolution, right?
Recent research indicates that as little as 10% weight loss results in significant health benefits, including, but not limited to reduction in medications and increased mobility. 10%, that’s it. 10% is completely achievable!
But where do you start?
The key to a successful health program depends on both the types of foods you eat and the amount of food. You must reduce sugars and carbohydrates and increase protein consumption to meet your body’s requirements.
Kingsway Health by The Lake provides such a program. We have been an authorized Ideal Protein clinic for over 6 years, during which time we have assisted hundreds of patients in achieving their healthy weight loss goals. This program is safe and effective, provides one-on-one coaching, and results in rapid fat loss, and most importantly doesn’t sacrifice muscle mass. You will experience improved energy and appetite control, reduced cravings, improved blood sugar and cholesterol levels and reduced blood pressure.
Can your health be improved even if you don’t have to lose weight?
Of course it can – by taking personal responsibility and becoming informed on regular nutritional needs. But you already know that. You just need to do something about it. You’re active, ‘healthy’ and eat all the right things, but still feel sluggish throughout the day. Learning the right balance of foods, what and when to eat certain foods, and how to maximize your energy food needs are all part of our educational nutrition program.
Still skeptical… Please review our clinic’s success stories on our website, and contact the office via email at email@example.com or call 416-231-9502 to ask any questions. It would be my pleasure to discuss your long term health goals with you.
2017… Don’t forget to be healthy… Health is a deliberate choice!
