Eating smarter for your health

by | Mar 16, 2018 | Health & Well-being |

At Bargara Beach Holistic Health Centre we have the latest technology available to analyse your dietary choices.  Rather than making dietary recommendations based purely on age or gender, our technology is able to provide dietary recommendations unique for you.  We are able to identify the optimum amounts and composition of foods that are required by your individual body to run at its peak.

When it comes to our vehicles the decision on which fuel to use is simple.  We also know that it is best to have our cars regularly serviced so that they run well and last longer.

However, when it comes to fuelling our bodies, and regular health check ups to promote wellbeing and longevity many of us tend to think we will sort that out later. But later never happens.

We are constantly bombarded with new and conflicting information.  Should we look for the Heart Foundation Tick of Approval, Traffic Light Labels, Health Star ratings, sugar-free or fat-free options?  Should we use the ‘Eat Well Plate’ or the ‘Healthy Food Pyramid’ to guide our decisions?  We know we should be eating 5 serves of vegetables and 2 serves of fruit, but exactly how much is in a serve and does it matter which fruits and vegetables we choose? What is a good fat, what is a bad fat, and where do the superfoods fit?  There are Keto diets, Mediterranean diets, Paleo diets, and Atkins diets to name a few.  Sadly, while we are trying to do our best to make healthy food choices we often just aren’t sure where to start.

Would you like to have a Food Eating Plan individually created for your specific body that will assist you with increased energy, health improvements and ideal body weight?  Would you like to see reports that will accurately analyse your body changes as you maintain your individualised Food Eating Plan?

At Bargara Beach Holistic Health Centre, our qualified Naturopaths and Nutritionists are here to help answer these questions.  We have the latest technology available to analyse your dietary choices.  Rather than making dietary recommendations based purely on age or gender, our technology is able to provide dietary recommendations unique for you.

We can take a quick 24-hour snapshot of your food intake, or a more comprehensive review your diet over a longer period of time.   Using this technology, we are able to identify the optimum amounts and composition of foods that are required by your individual body to run at its peak.  We can identify the exact types of fuel (carbohydrates, proteins and fats) that your body requires to provide energy for its everyday activities.

We can also identify your specific vitamin and mineral requirements, and determine how your intake compares to the Recommended Daily Intake.  Are you consuming insufficient amounts of a specific nutrient, and if so how may this be impacting on your overall health? Are you eating well but gaining weight?  Are you eating healthy foods that are incompatible with your body and causing further health issues?

Our technology also enables us to identify your total dietary sodium amounts, hidden sugar intake, and percentages of good fats to bad fats. Our primary focus is to educate and improve the overall wellbeing of our clients and to provide reports using scientific tools, that will motivate you to make the changes you need to be in optimal health.
