We all know the phrase "fat and beautiful" frequently used by the generations of the 50s-80s - in other words, at that time, the extra kilos meant well-being, in a time of multiple privations. Over time, however, diet and lifestyle have changed, people in Romania have become more sedentary and have adopted a Western-type diet, rich in sweets and fats and low in fiber. The society began to look at extra kilos differently and overweight, or obese, people were stigmatized. Also with time it became obvious that behind the extra kilos are also hidden health problems, some of them serious. So obesity is a chronic disease and its frequency in the population is increasing, including in children (one in 2 adolescents is obese).
The complications and consequences of obesity are multiple - cardiovascular disease, diabetes, liver or osteoarticular disease, gastroesophageal reflux disease, biliary lithiasis, etc. At the psychological level, self-confidence decreases and affects the relationship (both from the individual to the society, as it tends to hide, but from the society towards the individual, which considers it far from aesthetic, lazy and devoid of ideals).
The main "weapons" in the fight for normal weight are diet and physical activity. Both diet and exercise need to be designed as a stable lifestyle change. A drastic change will not be possible and the yo-yo effect will appear, quickly gaining weight. It is important that the goal of weight loss be a realistic one. With the exception of bariatric surgery, weight loss will be neither rapid nor drastic, so many may feel discouraged. We support you throughout this period of change, because to give up the healthy diet and the exercise means, in the end, to give up on ourselves.
The program "CHOOSE A HEALTHY LIFE STYLE" is personalized according to the objective established jointly with the patient and taking into account the current health status of the patient.
The program is based on the stages L.E.A.N. (Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude, Nutrition) for weight loss, prevention and reduction, until elimination, of existing or chronic diseases.
The decision to lose weight is in our hands only because we need motivation, guidance and support on the path of transformation. We know that restrictive diets cause frustration, deprivation, have been ephemeral, and rapid weight loss also leads to functional weakness of the body.
