Genetic predisposition, associated with inappropriate nutrition and lack of physical activity, results in the gradual accumulation of kilograms of fat. This excess fat is not just a tissue void of activity, responsible for the inaesthetic appearance. Excessive fat, especially in internal organs, is an active metabolic of the tissue, capable of secreting a series of compounds responsible for the occurrence of various diseases and a disruption of metabolism, so it becomes more and more difficult to return to weight healthy.
A correct nutrition approach must take all of these factors into account so that weight loss can be maintained. Our personalized " Healthily Lose weight - Lifestyle Optimization" program is not a diet, so it does not create frustration, but it calls for a healthy lifestyle through a balanced diet and regular physical rules. The personalized program consists of 6 sessions (the first 3 of 45 minutes and the next 3 of 30 minutes) in which patients will go through several stages in order to lose weight in a healthy way:
