Weight Loss

  • Why should we lose weight?
  • Does it matter that we are overweight?

Most modern day disease is caused by obesity, for instance
diabetes, heart disease, some cancers, high blood pressure,
chronic back problems and lots more.
But just as important is our quality of life, Can we do everything
we want to in our day-to-day life, or is our weight holding us
back
from enjoying the simplest things such as:

  • Going for a walk or hike with friends or family. Going for a
  • swim on a hot day but not feeling comfortable wearing your
  • swimming costume.
  • Going out for a special night and having problems with what
  • to wear and feeling uncomfortable in it.
  • Always feeling tired and no energy

Gold Coast Naturopath Chris Tompson says now is the time to change
all those problems by simply following
our eating pattern, it will help shed those extra kilos.
It is easy to follow and is more of a lifestyle change than a diet.
