A recent article in Choice Magazine put popular weight loss programs under review, revealing alarming results. People were given ‘incorrect’, ‘misleading’ and potentially harmful advice. Some programs were restrictive and unsustainable, and others used forceful sales tactics. Experts concluded that if you want to lose weight, it is best to:
1. Speak to your GP who can refer you onto a suitable health professional
2. Consult a university trained Accredited Practising Dietitian
3. Check the credentials of any weight loss program before committing.
