None of us can shape our future without understanding the present.
When you first approach Weight Away, we will ask you to answer a questionnaire about your likes and dislikes and any foods you really can't live without. You can also choose to keep a frank (and we do mean frank!) food diary for one week, so that we can analyse what you are eating and when . . . which will help us analyse the all important why.
This information forms the basis for your future plan.
Please note – it is not a test, or a chance to criticise your eating habits. This is the Weight Away way – and in our opinion the only way - to help you build a more healthy future. If you don't want to keep the diary you can share your likes and dislikes and we can start from there. There is also a quick questionnaire if you want to start immmediately.
By providing us with some basic information about your age, height and current weight, we will assess your
BMI and your BMR.
This is your Body Mass Index and your Basal Metabolic Rate.
Don’t get caught up in the diet jargon - this simply helps us calculate a daily calorie allowance that will get results. The tailored plan will ensure you lose a healthy and sustainable amount of weight each week – usually between one and two pounds.
If you follow the plan for a month, you will see how possible – and even easy - it is to continue. By designing it around you, around what you like and don’t like, and around how you live, it will already feel like your ‘normal’. This will help you follow it without thinking of it as a diet, and it will change your eating habits for life.
This is the secret to avoiding the pitfalls of yo-yo dieting, losing the weight only to pile the pounds back on again. You will have learnt to balance your food. More importantly be able to eat without guilt.
