Comprehensive approach ’aids faster weight loss’
A holistic approach that includes healthy nutritional supplements may be the best way to achieving success in shedding pounds.
According to Zoe Hellman, head of dietetics and health policy at Weight Watchers, people keen on losing weight should embark on a "comprehensive" regimen that includes healthy living and staying active.
She maintained that a multi-pronged approach that includes group support and adopting healthy behavioral patterns is the fastest way to weight loss success and maintaining a trim physique.
"You need to watch what you eat and control your intake, you also need to be physically active regularly," Ms Hellman commented.
"You need to acknowledge that if this weight loss is going to last for the long-term, which is of course what we want to help people to do, you have got to change those bad habits into good, and make changes to your lifestyle."
Incorporating supplements such as Organic Spirulina Extract Capsules and Total Body Slim Complex can also help keep the pounds from piling on.
Ms Hellman urged people trying to lose weight that it is not just what they eat that is important - they need to remember to incorporate all the other elements otherwise they are likely to fail in their quest to lose weight and keep it off.
Those seeking to lose weight were also advised not to try to go it alone and forgo the help of a supportive network of kindred spirits.
Ms Hellman pointed out that there is plenty of independent evidence is shows that weekly group support can significantly help people achieve success in their weight loss efforts.
A recent report published by The Lancet medical journal found that adults who are referred to a commercial weight loss programme lose around twice as much weight as people who receive standard care over a 12-month period.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
