Women’s Health

According to research carried out on behalf of the NHS, the biggest threat to women’s health here in the UK is obesity. The statistics provided by the research suggest that between 35 and 45% of women in the UK are over weight or obese. The consequences of being chronically over weight or obese, regardless of gender, are diabetes, heart problems and shorter life spans.

The women I help who struggle with weight complain of aching muscles and bones, diminished energy levels not to mention frustration and low self esteem.Changing old habits to healthy habits requires a complete reorientation in one’s relationship to food, and the new relationship to food must be lifelong. Thus the approach to women’s weight issues is not the latest fad diet but a completely new relationship to food: eating to live, not living to eat.
