A recent report (October 2018) in the Journal of Cancer (1) has shown that postmenopausal women who lose weight have a lower breast cancer risk than those with stable weight. These findings suggest that postmenopausal women who lose weight may reduce their breast cancer risk.
So why not combine your desire to look good for the Summer with helping you reduce your risk of breast cancer.
And share this with your friends who will benefit too.
At the Australian Menopause Centre we have 3 main pathways for weight loss:
1. We can assist you by assessing your current diet and making any adjustments that may need to be made to encourage weight loss and stop any further weight gain. This is done by discussing with our inhouse nutritionists your completed 2-week diet-diary and designing an eating program specific to your needs.
2. The second option is to introduce a ketosis diet. This diet aims to put your body into a state of ketosis, or fat burning. Information on portion sizes, allowable foods and recipes will be provided. Supplement use with your program will be considered. You are looking at an average loss of 0.5kg/week.
3. The third, and most popular option is our Kick Start Weight Loss Program (the HCG diet). We see an average of 10% of your body weight lost in the first 26 days – for example about 8kg in an 80kg person. We will provide you with an overview of the program, further information about human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) and an ebook that was written by the founder of the diet, Dr Simeon.
