Croi Weight Management Programme Delivers Results!

As Autumn approaches and you consider making lasting lifestyle changes to improve your heart health,  The Croi MyBalance Programme may be the answer, says local Heart & Stroke Charity Croí.

Over the past number of years, the Croi Health Team have developed and tested an evidence-based approach to sustainable weight loss and weight management known as the Croí MyBalance Programme. Without any gimmicks or fad diets, the Croí Programme which is a scientifically proven approach to sustainable weight loss, is helping people lose weight by literally making small changes to their lifestyle which yield great results in the fight against heart disease & stroke.

The Croí MyBalance programme runs over 8 weeks (1 session per week) with follow-up at 3, 6 and 12 months, and  provides expert guidance on all aspects of healthy living and lifestyle change including practical advice on weight, cholesterol, diabetes and blood pressure control. During the 8-week programme, each person is encouraged to keep a food diary and a weekly ‘weigh-in’ is optional. Also, as part of the programme, all participants will have lifestyle screening at initial assessment, end-of-programme and at one year which includes measurement of blood pressure, diabetes risk score, weight, body mass index, waist circumference, Mediterranean diet adherence score and physical activity levels.

To date, the majority of commercial weight loss programmes focus on dietary aspects alone without incorporating exercise and behavioural changes. The Croí MyBalance programme is unique in this regard and the results demonstrate the effectiveness of a lifestyle focused  approach. The key to a healthy lifestyle is good nutrition, regular exercise and stress management. The programme addresses issues as varied as your relationship with food, hydration, fitness levels and portion control. The Croí MyBalance programme provides long-term support and motivation to assist individuals in achieving their nutritional and lifestyle goals for optimum heart health.

The next Croí MyBalance programme will commence in the Croí Heart & Stroke Centre on Tuesday 17th October 2017 from 6.30pm to 7.30pm (with an optional weigh in from 6pm).There will be an initial assessment arranged by appointment prior to the start date.

As places are limited, pre-booking is essential by calling Croí on 091-544310 or register online by clicking here - Croí MyBalance October 2017.  A 'not for profit' fee applies.
