This World Health Day, I would like to address a very common yet pressing issue. Being a Nutritional Consultant comes at the cost of giving your clients the hard truth. I’m often asked why I am such a staunch advocate of weight loss. Why can’t I just let people be happy with how they look and their weight? What most people fail to understand is that it’s not just about weight loss, but rather about the effects that being overweight has on your body. It’s about health. As long as a person achieves an ideal body composition, their body is equipped to keep them mentally, spiritually and physically healthy.
