There is no doubt that society today is preoccupied with weight and, yet, obesity is at its highest.

Weight control is not only about looks ... it is also about health and, according to PharmaSave pharmacists, weight loss and management is about choices and lifestyle.

The 'Ideal Protein' weight loss method offered by PharmaSave is very systematic and medically sound and, unlike fad diets, is based on a balanced approach and a long-term commitment.  There is no counting calories and a pharmacist is readily accessible to answer questions.

A basic, healthy diet should have three nutritious meals a day and should exist of all food types.  Being healthy does not equate with denial and deprivation of food but follows a healthy eating plan and exercise.

Here are some PharmaSave useful tips for healthy living:

  • Don't diet adopt healthy eating habits.

  • Accept your body. Focus on measures of success other than weight. These measures can include having more energy, feeling more confident, having a lower stress level, and sleeping better.

  • Make gradual changes, not drastic ones.

  • Start your day with a nutritious breakfast. People who skip breakfast actually eat more during the day than those who eat a good breakfast.

  • Try to eat something every 3 to 6 hours. If you leave it too long, it could lead to overeating.

  • Take your time eating. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes for a "full" signal to reach your brain.

  • Do not do other activities while you are eating. This can distract you from your internal "full" cues and may result in overeating.

  • Try to understand how emotions and feelings affect what you eat and when you eat.

  • Eat more fruits, vegetables, and fibre.

  • Don't be fooled by low-fat foods. Although they contain less fat, manufacturers usually add more sugar to make up for taste lost when fat is removed.
