More than just weight
Not everyone is motivated by measurements alone. The greatest indicator of health is how you look and feel, not just whether you can fit into your favourite jeans again. We’ve listed the top three benefits of weight loss to help you focus on your New Year fitness goals.
Improved joint health
Carrying excess weight takes its toll on your joints, with knees and hips particularly susceptible to long-term damage and joint pain. Losing weight not only reduces the stress on your joints, but will minimise inflammation throughout the body as hormone-generating fat stores drop. This in-turn can help prevent autoimmune conditions like arthritis from developing.
There’s no hiding it – a poor diet shows on your face. An excess of dairy products and refined carbohydrates can contribute to bloating, breakouts and under-eye bags. Losing weight by reducing these foods and incorporating more antioxidants into your diet will improve your complexion. Our Pure Package programmes (including Weight Loss) are packed with up to ten different types of fruit and vegetables to help you eat yourself beautiful.
It’s no secret that good quality sleep has fantastic benefits for your waistline. Excess weight and body fat increase the likelihood of developing obstructive sleep apnoea which can block airways. These blockages can cause sleep disturbances that can contribute to dangerous conditions such as high blood pressure, stroke and heart disease. And when you’re tired, you’re more likely to make unhealthy food choices. Break the cycle with 150 minutes of moderate intensity exercise per week alongside delicious, nourishing meals.
