Another area which we are giving a lot of attention to is healthy eating plans. The NHS choices 12 week plan is a safe way of gradually losing weight in a way which can be measured and can have a long- term benefit to health. As this plan requires you to count calories, an effort must be made to weigh the food and count the calories. However, there are plenty of free apps which do the job for you - an example of this is “My Fitness Pal”. You just sign in and record the food you eat and it works out the calorie count for you.
The Service fitness advisers are putting together information to help staff achieve their ideal weight and assist in fitness plans.
I am more than happy to discuss any areas of Health and Fitness, so just get in touch, and we can share ideas.
