Why do we find it so hard to lose weight, especially around the middle? Our hormones have a big role to play which is why calorie restriction doesn’t work and why so often hormonal change at menopause is intertwined with fat gain around the middle. Join nutritionist Karen Newby at the beautiful Tilton House in the Sussex countryside to discuss how to shift that central weight and why calorie counting doesn’t work. The day will also include a session by Lucy Pinto on the best way to exercise.
“Misleading diets, food trends and pressure from society have created so many mixed messages about what we should and shouldn’t be doing to achieve our ideal shape. There are many factors that have an impact on our bodies and fat stores; stress, sleep and cortisol levels to name a few all of which are rarely talked about” – Lucy.
The day will include:
- Why diets don’t work and why they set us up to fail.
- Why we find it so hard to lose that fat around the middle even with calorie counting and exercise.
- Talk by The Box founder Lucy Pinto on how to exercise effectively.
- How to lose that hard to shift central fat (with vitality and no sense of deprivation thrown in!)
