Why Life2Change?

Regular diets and physical exercise are the mainstays of treatment for obesity. Right now these are the methods offered:

  • Most diets are all about reducing the consumption of energy-dense foods such as those high in fat and sugars and increasing the intake of dietary fibre. Following one of these 'hunger diets' actually produces weight loss, but doesn't deal with all other problems which are directly tied to the symptom of overweight and obesity. Also, these diets often take a lot of discipline to follow.

  • The amount of anti-obesity drugs and fat burning pills has grown enormously during the past decade. Nowadays the public is literally being bombarded with all kind of "magical" pills which will promise a leaner you just in a matter of days. Besides the fact that most fat burners are no more than glorified caffeine, there are also a lot of side effects that come with these pills. These include: Central nervous system burnouts, exhaustion, mental fatigue, mood swings, loss of the body's ability to recover from everyday stress and even psychological problems such as depression and anxiety.

  • When the diet, exercise and medication are not effective, a more drastic solution is being offered by placing a gastric balloon or performing surgery to reduce stomach volume and/or bowel length, leading to earlier satiation and reduced ability to absorb nutrients from food. As you can imagine this 'solution' delivers an intense blow to the body and therefore comes with a truckload of side effects. These include: occasional cramps, sense of nausea, vomiting, damage to the oesophagus or stomach, bleeding, general discomfort, the formation of ulcers, risk of infection and Intestinal obstruction which is caused by the balloon leaking and deflating which will cause it to pass through the intestines like normal food and on its way causing an obstruction. A lot of these problems will require additional surgery.

Although the methods in the above actually will produce weight loss, they all come with additional problems and risks. All of the mentioned methods focus on losing weight only, whereas the Life2Change program offers a lifelong solution that not only offers effective and healthy weight loss, but more important deals with the reason why a person is overweight or obese. Not solving these issues will only result in gaining weight again, which will lead to an even more depressed and desperate individual. Every single person on this planet is unique and different, therefore the solution to a person's overweight and obesity should be unique and different as well. The Life2Change program offers a solution to what has been the central and most challenging problem for successful weight management. It's time for your last diet. It's time to really change. It's time for Life2Change!
