Ideal Weight – What’s On 4 Me 2013 Headline Sponsor

What’s On 4 Me 2013 Headline Sponsor

Ideal_weight_120x120At Ideal Weight we see things differently. We believe that losing weight isn’t the hardest part – it’s keeping it off that’s tricky. That’s why learning the skills for long term weight management is at the heart of what we offer.

Unlike most weight loss plans, we don’t believe ‘one size fits all’. Your ideal weight is personal to you, and only you should decide what it is. We offer a range of eating plans to kick start your weight loss journey combined with weekly weight management sessions with one of our Ideal Weight coaches.  This means that when you reach your ideal weight you’ll have all the tools and skills you’ll need to stay there.

We use the Body Mass Index to accurately measure if you are overweight or obese and your Ideal Weight coach will use this calculation to help you choose which of our plans is suitable for you. The Body Mass Index calculation is a basic and widely accepted way to measure if you’re overweight or obese. Medical professionals use BMI to assess health risks. For example, the higher your BMI the higher your risk of certain diseases such as high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, gallstones, breathing problems and some cancers.

We know the only way to successfully maintain your ideal weight once you’ve reached it, is to change your relationship with food. Our coaches are trained weight management experts who’ll not only support and listen to you through the usual ups and downs of your weight loss journey, but more importantly, they are there to help you build a positive relationship with food for the future.

Weight Loss Plans

IdealWeight

Our range of weight loss plans have been developed to fit in with your lifestyle. Ideal Weight offer three eating plans to help you kick start your weight loss journey. On the 4 Plan, all your meals are replaced with four nutrition packs a day and you will have a daily milk allowance. Because this is a very low calorie eating plan and your long-term health is important to us, not everyone who comes to us can do the 4 Plan, and those who are able to, can only stay on this plan for a maximum of eight weeks. Your coach will discuss whether this is an option for you.

The 3 Plan and 2 Plan consist of nutrition packs (you can choose from our range of delicious shakes, soups, meals and bars which are all suitable for vegetarians), plus meals which you’ll prepare for yourself from our list of every day food options, which includes a daily fruit and milk allowance. Using this you’ll be able to prepare yourself meals like creamy salmon, pork stir-fry, curries and casseroles.

You’ll have a weekly session with your Ideal Weight coach to have a better understanding of why you have gained weight in the past and what behavioural changes you can make to manage your weight better in the future.

Maintaining your Ideal Weight

Once you’ve lost weight and are close to your ideal weight, you’ll have already started putting into practise the skills you’ll need to help you maintain your weight in the future. When you reach this stage your coach will introduce you to our weight management eating plans. The 1 Plan is the first step towards weight maintenance. This plan includes one nutrition pack a day alongside three meals which you’ll prepare for yourself from an extended list of every day foods, plus you will still continue to attend your weekly session with your Ideal Weight coach.

Once you’ve finished the 1 Plan, and are ready to start maintaining your ideal weight, you’ll start experimenting with food choices, portion sizes and new recipes, and fully put to use all the new skills you developed during your weight loss phase. And of course, the support of your coach and group will also continue throughout this time.

Ideal Weight Coaches

Our coaches are at the heart of Ideal Weight, so finding the right people to work with us is crucial to our success. We recruit people from all backgrounds, however, there’s one common thread – you must have excellent people skills and empathy. We recruit against a competency framework to ensure that all Ideal Weight coaches offer the best possible service to our clients. If you think you have the skills to help our clients reach their ideal weight and stay there, contact us now, we’d love to hear from you!
