NO DIET REQUIRED TO MANAGE YOUR WEIGHT!


When it comes to weight management, numerous theories exist but very few
of them do any real good. At Clinique La Prairie, it is not a matter of starving
to help lose a few kilos. Here, you learn to eat while ignoring received ideas.

Diets are harmful

Food restrictions are a source of suffering and draw on your muscle tissue without making sufficient inroads into your fat layer. In the long term, they lead to a slower metabolism which will be unable to function normally.


Weight management is not weight loss

This programme is a long-term treatment aimed at regaining bodily sensations linked to food, changing certain bad habits and reintroducing regular physical exercise.

Being hungry is not an option

Hunger is a healthy warning which must be answered by eating. Ignoring this signal disrupts the metabolism and the entire psychological balance linked to nutrition and can cause eating disorders and other avoidable pathologies.


You cannot impose an arbitrary weight on your body

Cette méthode radicale n’est à If the desired figure does not correspond to your ideal weight, you will be subject to chronic food restrictions in order to maintain it.

Comfort food is not prohibited

A food which is good for your morale can be enjoyed in reasonable quantities. Reassure yourself by thinking that you can eat some again tomorrow and, more importantly, do not feel guilty: that would spoil your pleasure and increase your stress.


Sleep is a friend of weight loss

Sleeping well ensures that the hormones and neurotransmitters influencing your weight are functioning correctly. In contrast, poor sleep leads to stress and increases hunger.

 

 

Liposuction is not a diet

This radical method should only be envisaged for cosmetic purposes once your weight and eating habits have been stabilised. There is no point in performing liposuction if you are going to put on weight again shortly afterwards.

Miracles do happen
Thanks to healthy eating habits, compliance with the body’s messages and regular exercise, many problems are improved or avoided. For example, diabetes can be reduced significantly and osteo-articular pain can be reduced or may disappear altogether after a 10% weight loss.

No food makes you put on weight

Only excess makes you put on weight. If you eat as much as you burn off, no food will make you put on weight.


Food is cultural

Each culture has its weaknesses in terms of eating habits. While some eat at any time of night or day, others eat and drink too much sugar. Some regions of the world live in permanent stress which has an impact on their manner of eating and their metabolism. While we mustn’t forget where we are from, it is nevertheless possible to adjust our behaviour.
