Nutrition

It’s simple but true, the most powerful combination for sustained weight loss is eating the right foods at the right time and following a progressive exercise regime. If you want to lose weight and burn fat, following the correct nutrition plan is essential. Without adjusting your diet, all your effort on exercise is wasted.

The Liveforlife Diet philosophy is based on appreciating the foods our bodies have been designed to eat, not what we’ve been told to eat. It has been estimated that our genes have hardly changed over the last 40,000 years since our Cro-magnon hunter-gatherer ancestors roamed the earth. In short we are still designed to eat the foods we did as hunter-gatherers: organic, pesticide free, lean grass fed meats, wild fish, free range poultry, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. Foods such as breads, pasta, grains and sugar were not available and as a result many people living in today’s society do not handle some of these foods well.

The personalised liveforlife weight loss nutrition plan recognise that over consumption of these types of foods can be detrimental to our health. To address this the diet incorporates a 12 week phased approach of re-balancing and re-introduction personalised to you.
