About Weight Management - It's not as difficult as we think

Updated: May 5, 2023

Most people think mastering the skill to maintain a healthy body weight takes forever.


But I can explain it to you in 60 seconds.


6 Steps to turbocharge your journey:

1. Stay Hydrated

You need 30-35ml/kg body weight daily [1-2].


Note: some caution for who may have reduced cardiac/renal function [2]. Please refer to your doctors’ prescription of a fluid plan.


2. Build a Balanced Plate

3. Eat an Adequate Amount of Protein

4. Have dairy like high protein yoghurt and fruit as snacks

5. Avoid consuming too much sweetened pre-packaged food items, desserts and beverages

6. Avoid maintaining a sedentary posture like sitting on the couch for more than 2 hours
