  • You will steadily continue to lose weight, without inducing 'starvation mode'
  • All your favourite meals from step 1, plus loads more!

HOW DOES THIS PROGRAM WORK FOR ME?
 Have you ever started a 'diet' and lacked motivation to continue? You will get quick results with step 1, encouraging you to continue to choose your healthy future.
 Have you ever 'dieted' successfully for a while, then plateaued? Eating too few calories over a long period, slows your metabolism, as your body adjusts to the restricted intake. Step 2 ensures you continue to steadily lose kgs and reach your goal weight.
 Have you ever 'dieted' successfully, but eventually put the weight back on when you started eating 'normally' again? By the time you complete step 3, your eating habits will be completely overhauled - you will crave healthy foods to fuel your body and will be completely in control of your eating. At Mint, we don't believe in short term dieting - lifestyle changes happen when we are educated about our body's needs and are provided with healthy options. And we know no-one wants to count calories.. let us do all the counting and you can focus on eating delicious, nutritious, fresh food!
 
What's the science?? Research shows a 1200 calorie intake is the minimum requirement for the basic functions of the body - your brain, heart and breathing are amongst the important processes which all require energy.  However, your height, weight, gender and daily activity all play an important role in determining your daily calorie requirement (your basal metabolic rate = BMR), ie the amount you can eat without gaining weight. So by simply sticking to a calorie plan which is below your daily BMR needs, you will actually start to lose weight - just by changing your eating habits. Of course exercise will speed up this process and is definitely required to maintain your general health and metabolism.
 
Example:
- 35 yo female, weighs 73kg (healthy) & is 176cm tall
- requires 2350 calories to lead a 'moderately active' lifestyle, without gaining weight.
How would she lose weight?
1850 calories per day, for our moderately active female above, means that every day she is consuming 500 less calories. Over a week, this equals 3500 calories LESS than what is required to maintain her weight.
 
So what will she actually lose??
It's important to know:
1lb of weight = 3500 calories 
i.e. she would lose almost half a kg per week, just by following her specific 1850 calorie healthy eating plan! This is a safe weight loss that she is likely to keep off longterm.

Exercising (ie burning more calories) would ensure she lost even more!

Why?

A healthy balance of protein, carbs, and good fats has been calculated for you in this Dietician approved menu - this isn't a fad, just good old fashioned healthy eating.  We now know that weight is a predictor of disease - it is very important to maintain a healthy weight throughout your life. Being middle-aged and just 10kg heavier than you were in your 20s increases your risk of cardiovascular disease (heart attacks, stroke, high blood pressure) and diabetes. And if you are obese (BMI > 30), these are just some of the chronic conditions associated with your weight:
  • Some cancers including breast, endometrial and colon cancer
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome
  • Stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Musculoskeletal problems such as osteoarthritis and back pain
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Stress incontinence
  • Insulin resistance
  • Type 2 diabetes (non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus)
  • Gall bladder disease
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Gout
  • Cataracts
  • Sleep apnoea

 There's so many 'diets' out there - how do I know what's right for me?
At Mint our food philosophy is simple:
  • DON'T DIET!! Healthy living is a part of your life - these programs are designed to guide you towards choosing the right foods, forever.
  • use fresh, seasonal, high quality ingredients
  • protein is important - but so are good carbs and good fats!
  • avoid processed foods - 'make your own' wherever possible
  • eat 'clean' - let's do our bit for the environment and choose local produce, which hasn't been packed and travelled. Your local Farmer's Market is a good place start
  • always choose wholewheat
  • and did we mention.. avoid processed foods! No-one ever became obese eating fresh fruit and veggies!!
