“Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind, and spirit”.B.K.S Iyegar
Last year working with a client called Annie. She shared during our initial strategy session that her main issue was, she had gained 10 kgs over the previous 12 months. Unable to shift this excess weight. She became pre-occupied with trying to lose weight,. As a result she decided to only eat one meal per day and that was generally late in the evening.
As a health professional, alarm bells started ringing as we know from experience and case studies that starving your body to lose weight is generally counterproductive and creates other problems. Ultimately, starving your body can lead to difficulty with concentration, fatigue, and brain fog to mention a few.
Annie’s current situation, revealed that she was struggling to cope with her workload, trying to juggle so many competing priorities. Exhaustion had crept in! Compounding her situation by starving her body. For the body to function well it needs a regular supply of nutritious meals at regular intervals throughout the day.
At the same time, sometimes, we just need to stop, take a breath, and a long look at what is going on inside of us. As a result, by the end of our strategy session, Annie had identified her stressors and we had developed an initial plan to reduce some of these “pain points”. Finally, one key action that Annie took away was to introduce 3 small meals and two snacks throughout her day. These meals included 30% good fats including avocado or olive oil, 40% carbohydrates, such as green leafy vegetables, and 30% protein.
