Programmes

Special programs for:

Weight loss:

This is a program for people who are overweight or obese and desire to lose some weight in a healthy way. The diet plan is based on a low calorie low fat diet, custom made for each client and determined by the following factors: age, current weight, physical activity and medical history.

Weight gain:

This is a program for people who are underweight and would like to gain some mass in a healthy manner, in order to reach their optimal weight: by increasing their muscles and/or fat according to their bodies’ needs and deficiencies.

Weight maintenance:

This program is mainly for people who are already in their normal weight range and would like to maintain their figure whilst eating healthy, well balanced and tasty meals.

Children obesity:

Childhood obesity has more than tripled in the past 30 years. It has both immediate and long-term effects on the health and well-being of the child and therefore needs to be treated as early as possible. Overweight and obese children are put on a diet plan which will help them lose weight while including all the nutrients (Vitamins, Minerals, Fibers, Protein, Carbohydrates and Fat) their body and brain need for a healthy and optimal growth and cognitive development. Each child gets to custom make his own menu and to choose his own meals in order for the diet to feel more appealing, pleasurable and enjoyable rather than feeling like a punishment.

Pregnancy:

Adopting a healthy eating plan and supplying the body with a tasty blend of nutritious foods will keep the mom-to-be feeling healthy during pregnancy, will help her gain the right amount of weight needed, will pave the way for an easier labor and most importantly will help to establish essential building blocks of growth and overall health for her soon-to-be-born baby.

Breastfeeding:

the quality and quantity of milk depends very much on the mother’s diet. Lactating women are put on a diet plan which will help them get the calories and nutrients needed in order to breastfeed while losing weight in a healthy way.

Sports nutrition:

The performance of competitive athletes or weight lifters is always affected by what they eat. People who work out regularly need to follow a specific sports regimen, tailor made for them, with the right amounts of carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals and fluids in order to fuel the body properly during exercise.
