Nutrition, dietetics and treatments for obesity

Sedentary habits, the passing of the years, pregnancy and the menopause are some of the risk factors that promote weight gain and to which we are all exposed. Being overweight always negatively affects our health eventually.

As we are all different, we have to tackle this problem in a personalized way, analysing the personal, social and morphological circumstances in order to identify the most suitable solutions for each person.

· For regulating weight. Diet for slimming or putting on weight, preparing for pregnancy, postpartum and menopause.

· For improving performance.

· For insomnia problems.

· For improving health and wellbeing. Improving the intestinal flora, preventing illnesses.

Procedure:

We start with a thorough prior analysis of the body, including an anthropometric study and measurement of the composition of the body mass, in order to determine the dietary needs and habits and assess or rule out the presence of any pathology.

A personalized treatment plan is proposed aligned with each person’s circumstances and preferences. The objective is always to create healthy eating habits. As well as being balanced, healthy and varied, the diet must be personalized and designed to provide the nutrients and foods required for each person’s body in the appropriate amounts and proportions. The objective is to learn to eat in a healthy and rational way and moderately and progressively introduce physical exercise into our habits.

Treatments:

Personalized Diet

An effective diet plan must be overseen by a Medical Nutritionist. They take charge of giving good nutritional education that ensure the common rebound effect and they design a personalized diet with foods and timetables designed in line with each person’s habits and tastes. They also perform a regular follow-up program, which is extremely important for ensuring that the objectives set continue to be achieved, while also varying the diet to make it easier to stick to.

High-protein diet

Optionally, the diet of conventional foods can be replaced or complemented by foods specifically designed to lose weight. In this case, the Medical Nutritionist designs the treatment based on the most suitable products for each person at any given time. Protein foods ensure the provision of proteins, essential for our bodies to function properly, while also reducing the intake of carbohydrates and fats, responsible for weight gain.

Food supplements

Micronutrients, called so because they are required in small quantities, enable macronutrients (proteins, carbohydrates and fats) to be absorbed and used effectively, thereby giving us the energy our bodies need to carry out all of its activities. They also perform a great range of functions for preserving our health and improving our quality of life. Most micronutrients are not produced by the body and must be provided by the food we eat.
