WEIGHT LOSS: FOOD QUALITY OR QUANTITY
The basic principle of dieting works by burning more calories than we consume. Since adding extra exercise to the routine isn’t always possible, many opt for a calorie-deficit-based routine and this is where the correct food choices play a pivotal role.
It’s important to plan meals in advance and understand the nutritional impact that the foods you eat have on your physical and emotional wellbeing. Without prior planning, it’s very easy to opt for low-calorie faster foods that require little preparation – especially when we’re exhausted or haven’t made time to dedicate to mindful food prep.
This is when the wider implications of dieting take hold. Feeling weak or irritable because we lack the right nutrients. It’s because poor-quality foods lead to chemical and hormonal reactions. Non-nutritious foods trigger chemical reactions in the body that work against weight loss. Poor-quality foods can also slow down your metabolism and lead to nutritional deficiencies.
Kamalaya Koh Samui Wellness Sanctuary & Holistic Spa emphasises the role of wholesome food in dieting. Nutrition plays a major role in restoring and maintaining health by supplying necessary nutrients to body cells for energy production, tissue repair, hormone production and proper organ function.

The warning signs that you’re suffering stress and burnout can start with the feeling that every day is a bad day; when caring about your work or home life seems to be a total waste of energy.
Characterized by constant fatigue, insomnia, low blood pressure, back and joint pain, decreased immunity and anxiety, it is the result of the adrenal glands going into overdrive, eventually becoming underactive before suffering a full burnout.
The word ‘spa’ is an abbreviation for the Latin phrase ‘Sanus Per Aquam’, which means ‘health through water’ and ‘wellness’ refers to our state of good health and combines the concepts of wellbeing and fitness together.
