After many years of experience in weight loss, we have decided on compiling a 12-week weight loss programme. The following is the outline of what to expect in each session:
Healthy eating dietary guidelines
Low kilojoule menu that will guide you to make better choices in the right portions
Individualised meal plan according to your body’s nutritional requirements
Education on label reading and food diary
Education of the different types of fats
Education on the different types and the role of fibre in the diet
Tips for eating out, beverages and alcohol use
Guidelines on exercise
Re-evaluation – Continue programme / Maintenance programme
Education is given according to specific disease conditions and follow-up appointments are arranged as necessary.
Group sessions can be arranged on request.
Medical aid tariffs apply and consultations can be claimed from the fund. Card facilities are available.
A dietitian registered with the Vitality Wellness Network can perform Vitality Nutrition Assessments, which will help you to earn up to 11 000 points by completing 3 x 30 min. sessions.
The assessment takes 30 minutes and includes physical measurements such as height, weight, body mass index and waist circumference.
SMART goals will be established to help you to achieve your goals.
Applicable guidelines from Discovery will be emailed to you that will help support your goals.
Remember to bring along your Discovery membership card.
Testing your own genetic makeup is one of the newest technologies available for effective weight loss.
Thirteen genes are tested that impact metabolism and fat loss. The results provide individual recommendations that include gene-based personalised dietary changes and an eating plan to achieve optimal weight loss according to your weight, height, and fat percentage.
Your current lifestyle, exercise, supplementation, likes and dislikes will also be taken into consideration with the implementation of the meal plan to ensure the effectiveness.
