Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to diet to lose weight?
No - you do not need to diet to lose weight. Simply adopting healthy, regular habits such as reducing your food portion sizes, reducing take away foods, drinking water as opposed to sugary beverages, eliminating alcohol and participating in more regular exercise will help you lose weight.
How many calories per day should I eat to lose weight?
The number of calories recommended each day is different for each individual. There are a lot of things to take into account when determining your recommended daily intake. These include your weight, gender, age, activity level and more. It is best to speak with your pharmacist or GP first if you are looking to monitor your weight loss by reducing your calorie intake.
What are the best healthy foods to eat to help with weight loss?
Weight loss doesn't necessarily mean that you need to go on a restrictive diet with limited food options. It is more so about looking at your current diet and making changes that allows you to lose weight without feeling deprived or hungry. By eating smaller portion sizes and limiting foods high in saturated fats as well as introducing more salads and vegetables to your diet can help.
