Weight Loss: Quantity or Quality?

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.

We offer a Nutritional Guidance consultation as well as an extensive and delicious menu designed to provide optimal-calorie, nutritious support from within. Our menus are crafted to stimulate and support cellular detoxification, with phytonutrients to accelerate the removal of toxins from the system. The delicious cuisine that we serve features only low inflammatory, low allergenic and low GI ingredients.
