LOOKING to improve your health and shed some pounds, without turning into a gym rat?
Australian health programme Juniper is on hand with some simple yet useful tips to help you kick-start your regime.
Juniper uses specialist clinicians to create personalised-based plans, helping women achieve their long term weight-loss goals.
The fully clinically approved programme is perfect for anyone looking to get healthier by shedding some pounds in a sustainable way.
Here Juniper expert health coach, Deborah, shares the basics anyone looking to lose weight should start doing in order to help increase their metabolism and start moving again.
Make sure that you set achievable goals that can fit into your day-to-day life.
Making incremental changes over time and focusing on developing healthy habits rather than the number on the scale – is more sustainable and gratifying in the long run.
When we talk about enablers, we think about the ‘somethings’ or ‘someone’ you have on your side that can help you achieve your goals.
Barriers refer to the obstacles in your way to success.
Identifying these and being aware of them will better prepare you to face your challenges and overcome them.
Strong evidence shows that self-monitoring is a key factor in successful behaviour change.
Self-monitoring can be as simple as you like, from weekly weigh-ins and calorie tracking, to keeping a diary to track cravings and moods and using checklists.
It’s the part where your metabolism is the most active as it needs to synthesise the food you’ve just given it.
Lots of sleep is also important for anyone trying to lose weight. It stimulates your metabolism, a good point for those loving a bit of a lie-in.
In contrast, a lack of sleep can lead to increased appetite caused by hormonal changes. This can often lead us to reach for unhealthier foods that are detrimental to long-term health.
Using clinically-proven medication and sustainable healthy habits, Juniper, the scientifically-backed programme has already helped thousands of Australian women.
And now Juniper is has newly launched in the UK.
Juniper‘s health experts explain: ‘"Juniper prescribes a medication called ‘semaglutide’ which is the active ingredient in a brand of medication called Ozempic (manufactured by Novo Nordisk).
"Semaglutide is clinically proven for long-term weight loss and has been shown to help patients lose 10 to 15% of their body weight on average in one year."
On the programme eligible users will get access to clinically proven medication, one-to-one health tracking, a personal health coach and ongoing medical consultations.
Users will also be able to make the most of the Juniper community of women who are all on the same weight-loss journey.
With medication, one to one health tracking, a personal health coach, ongoing medical consultations, and a community of women on the same journey – all in one package.
