Insights

Dietetics-mind

We become what we ... think!
The only food indications, even when they are addressed to health problems (hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, diabetes) or to particular physiological conditions (pregnancy, breastfeeding, etc.) are often not the solution to the weight problem. Our body is "modeled" around our habits, it is true, but our habits are modeled around our beliefs and our beliefs are modeled around the thoughts we cultivate.

It is customary to think of the mind as a reality detached from the body but mind and body are not only not separated, but are closely connected to each other.

This means that if we think something, this something is able to influence our behaviors and repeated behaviors, they become habits and habits will determine the results, both on the mental plane - that of beliefs - and on the physical plane, that of the body: its shape , his ability to react, his health. By understanding these dynamics, it is possible to learn how to manage critical moments, guide habitual, compulsive behaviors, including nervous hunger and structure specific strategies to solve the weight problem.

Get the skinny inside you out

Through group meetings, all those issues that help to get to know the body better, the stimuli that regulate food intake, the mind-body relationship, the social dynamics that influence the behaviors at the table and many other themes that revolve around to the world of food and which influence body weight such as anxiety and stress, self-esteem, menopause, physical activity, metabolism, language, etc. The groups will consist of 10-12 participants at most to be able to work interactively and experientially.

Bioimpedance

Bioimpedancemetry or bioimpedance allows to evaluate the composition of body weight: lean mass, fat mass, hydration status and basal metabolism. 

It is an examination - simple and non-invasive - thanks to which you have the possibility to determine the composition of your body weight, and this becomes particularly interesting, for example, when you undertake a physical activity or at the beginning of a journey weight loss or weight gain. Since every change in lifestyle (modification of motor activity, consumption of liquids, food style, etc.) involves a change in body weight, it can be important to determine what and how the body changes over time, because it depends on it the daily energy expenditure (Basal Metabolism) and the state of health and physical efficiency.
