Shakin’ For Life:
The Shake It Program encourages exercise four times a week,
aiming for 40 minutes each time. Recommended and fun types of
exercise include walking, swimming, cycling, dancing and playing
sport. Exercise plays an integral role in maintaining general health
and is crucial for cardiovascular health, healthy insulin and glucose
balance, optimal energy levels and of course weight management.
If there is any reason that would restrict you from doing this level of
exercise, speak to your Practitioner for advice.
Another key to lasting weight loss is fun and relaxation. By including
more social activities, hobbies, rest and the things you find most
relaxing in your daily life, you will have a positive impact on your
stress levels and therefore support weight loss.
Keep a Track of Fat Burning:
Your Practitioner will provide you with the tools to monitor if your
body is burning fat by testing for the presence of ketones. Ketones
are a by-product of fat metabolism, created as the liver breaks
down fats. If ketones are present in the urine, you can be confident
that your body is burning fat stores to support your ultimate weight
Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is important for your
own personal health and for the benefit of your loved ones. Start
the year off with a change that will make a lasting difference. There
is no time like now to lose those extra kilos and reduce your risk of
chronic disease to become a healthier, happier you.
