In the past couple of years mention the word “garcinia cambogia” or “african mango”, “high protein/low carb diets like “Atkins” or “Paleo” and you’ll have anyone wanting to lose some weight come running… generally on the empty promise of a quick fix and a magic pill. High protein diets are a real concern for practitioners because you run the risk of producing high levels of metabolic waste that can potentially cause accelerated ageing and potential long term health problems (remember in the Paleolithic time the average age was around 33 so the potential long-term harm of restricting whole food groups was not realised).
The amount of inquiries is always astounding whenever “magic pills” or “magic diets” are advertised in the media. It’s hard to believe anyone in this day and age, with access to so much information, can truly believe that taking a pill is the answer to their weight issue.
Focus On Wellness And Not Just On Weight-Loss
Our focus here at Mammoth Health is on wellness and not just weight-loss. While a focus on weight control is important, body fat levels are but one piece of the puzzle that makes up complete health and well-being. Weight loss programs that not only show you how to eat and exercise, but help you sleep better and deal with stress are more likely to get results. In addition, making lifestyle choices that reduce blood pressure and blood fats can not only boost heart health, but can also boost quality of life.
Whole Health Eating Focuses Not Just On Weight-Loss But On Healthier Lifestyles
The “Back to Basics” is the approach we take focuses on getting away from highly processed foods and back into eating whole foods. Whole health eating focuses not just on weight loss but on healthier lifestyles. With emphasis on eating and enjoying seasonal foods sourced locally– we’ve finally embraced the notion of eating watermelon in the middle of a Victorian Winter just doesn’t seem right!
And my passion – Foods as Medicine (or functional foods) where we use foods for healing or specific health specific health issues; foods for anti-ageing or foods for nutritional therapy… so integral for overall health and weight loss.
After fifteen years of being in the health and wellness industry, I have heard the many issues and struggles of those who are desperate to lose weight. It is understandable to ‘buy into’ the promise for a quick fix when all else has seemingly failed.
Many have had weight issues for most of their life, and essentially tried every diet, every magic pill, everything, it would seem, to try and lose weight. Most stick with the new promise for a few weeks and then fall off the wagon and blame themselves – the guilt, the self-loathing, the feeling of helplessness and despair – and their self-fulfilling prophecy of failure is reinforced.
And every time a new magic weight-loss pill or diet is released the cycle continues. Back on the wagon, I suspect to convince others (but mostly themselves) that they are trying and are taking control.
But inevitably they don’t really believe it’ll work because it never has before. And it doesn’t.
