New Years Resolutions...New Year, New You? If you've gained extra kilos over the festive season and losing weight is high on your priority list, Power by Nutrition is here to guide and support you to get lasting results.
The New You! Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is important for your own personal health and for the benefit of your loved ones. Start the year off with a change that will make a lasting difference. There is no time like now to lose those extra kilos and reduce your risk of chronic disease for happy, healthy longevity.
Obesity is one of the biggest public health challenges facing the population, with numbers soaring by 80% in the last 33 years. Did you know that according to The New Zealand Health Survey 2018/19 around 1 in 3 adults (aged 15 years and over) in New Zealand were obese (30.9%). Clearly this is not an uncommon health condition, and many of us will face weight challenges at some point in our lives. Weight gain is not just a symptom, but actually a health condition in its own right. If you had an illness, wouldn’t you do something about it to make yourself better? So why not start the year off with a fresh start and give yourself the gift of health and feel great in 2020.
Many factors can contribute to weight gain; including prolonged or recurring stress, reduced metabolic rate from low thyroid function, imbalances in blood sugar levels or hormones, toxicity and poor digestive function. Even muscle aches or pains or frequent infections may be slowing your fat loss due to the presence of inflammation.
Shake Off Those Extra Kilos
If you feel like you are carrying a spare tyre round your middle, the Shake It Program can help you lose that unwanted belly fat. Also known as visceral adipose tissue, this type of deep fat surrounds the abdominal area and organs, and is associated with an increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke and even dementia. All good reasons to trim down now, get healthier and reduce your risk of chronic disease.

Healthy Eating For a Healthy Body
The Shake It Program is an easy-to-follow, nutrient-rich eating plan. Every day you can enjoy two healthy low carbohydrate meals, one meal replacement of a tasty shake, hearty soup or delicious bar, two low carbohydrate protein snacks and healthy oils in your diet. You will receive a guide demonstrating healthy portion control, which will also guarantee fullness and satisfaction so you won’t be left feeling hungry. There is also a recipe book available with tasty and easy recipes to try that are all suitable for optimal weight loss. Sample meal plans give you some great ideas for meals and snacks, and food lists are a handy resource to take shopping so you don’t get caught out buying the wrong foods.
Shakin’ For Life
The Shake It Program encourages exercise four times a week, aiming for 40 minutes each time. Recommended types of exercise include walking, swimming, cycling, dancing and playing sport. Exercise plays an integral role in maintaining general health and is crucial for cardiovascular health, healthy insulin and glucose balance, optimal energy levels and of course weight management. If there is any reason that would restrict you from doing this level of exercise, discuss this with your Practitioner.
Another key to lasting weight loss is fun and relaxation. By including more social activities, hobbies, rest and the things you find most relaxing in your daily life, you will have a positive impact on your stress levels and therefore support weight loss. Keep a Track of Fat Burning Your Practitioner will provide you with the tools to monitor if your body is burning fat by testing for the presence of ketones. Ketones are a by-product of fat metabolism, created as the liver breaks down fats. If ketones are present in the urine, you can be confident that your body is burning fat stores to support your ultimate weight loss goal.
If you want to lose weight and keep it off, the Shake It Programme is a great place to start.
