Diabetes is very common in Singapore and affects people of all ages and walks of life. It is characterised by high levels of blood sugar (hyperclycaemia), due to insufficient insulin production or the inability of the body to respond to insulin. Complications of diabetes include kidney failure, nerve damage and dysfunction, heart disease, and lower limb amputations. Diabetes is also a leading cause of blindness.
If you have diabetes, you’re probably already familiar with some of its effects. Diabetes is a part of life now, but don’t let that be a limiting factor to living your Life fully! It will take time but you will be able to manage it by making healthy lifestyle changes. Diet and medication come to mind, but exercise is also an indispensable management tool with multiple benefits. If you’re not already exercising, here’s why you should.
A significant number of people consult with me not because they want to start losing weight but because they’ve already tried to, but aren’t successful. By unsuccessful, I mean they have either lost no weight, or have had some weight loss which plateaued before they reached their goals.
Justifiably, they want to know WHY.
Over the years I’ve had the privilege of working with many goal-oriented and intelligent clients. These are people who want to learn not just the WHATs, but also the WHYs. This agrees with me since my focus is on education, empowerment and independence. Working together, I’ve developed an understanding of what the commonest reasons for weight loss failure are. Here are 4 might apply to YOU right now.
