Nutrition for Weight Loss

Healthy Alternatives at Go Girl Physique Timaru

“The first wealth is health. “ – Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Feul up (even if your goal is to lose weight)

Even if you’re attempting to lose weight, give your body the energy it needs to do the tasks you want it to. Lack of nourishment can result in weariness, a decrease in bone density, and a loss of muscle mass. This in turn raises your risk of injury and disease, slows down your recovery, disrupts your hormones, and, in the case of us women, affects your menstrual cycle.

It is important to eat the right foods and you can have lots of it! Good nutrition can help you shed excess pounds — without food cravings or feeling hungry! This is because healthy foods are packed with nutrients, unlike processed foods, which are typically loaded with fat, sugar, and salt.

Loss of weight

You need to be in a calorie deficit to lose weight, which means your body burns more calories than you take in. Less calorie-dense food and liquids, increased physical exercise, or a mix of the two can help you reach this goal.

The advantages of diet

While both exercise and diet are crucial for weight loss, controlling your calorie intake by making dietary changes amplifies the result when it comes to loosing centimetres off your waistline.

At Go Girl Physique we have addressed a swath of questions on what types of high calories foods can be replaced with a similar food albeit with less calories. Our recipe pages contains recipes that are not only healthy but lower in calories and can easily be added to your weekly shop.
