Seeking the best weight loss nutritionist in London? In this article we will discuss weight loss and how a nutritionist can help you reach your goals.

Weight Loss Facts

The majority of adults in the UK are overweight or obese; 67% of men and 60% of women (NHS 2020). 11,117 hospital admissions in 2018-19 were directly attributable to obesity which was an increase of 4% on 2017-18, when there were 10,660 admissions (NHS 2020). Obesity is directly linked to a number of different illnesses including type 2 diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome, hypertension, gallstones and gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (NICE 2020), as well as depression, stress and anxiety. Therefore it is evident that obesity levels with all the detrimental side effects are increasing and current government protocols are not able to cope with this epidemic.

Causes of Overeating

The causes of overeating can be linked to several factors. Firstly eating without due attention an many of us eat on the go or whilst distracted by our phones. If we concentrate on our food experience (taste, smell, texture) we are more likely to feel satisfied and less likely to overeat. Whilst emotional eating is normal when we are sad, stressed or even happy, it can become a problem when it develops into a coping strategy to reach for ‘comfort food’. Processed foods are digested quickly giving us a blood sugar spike followed by a dip which makes us feel hungry and more prone to overeat. Skipping meal times and dieting can also disrupt your blood sugar levels which may result in overeating.

Body Mass Index (BMI)

Obesity is the medical term for an accumulation of body fat which may have a negative effect on health. It is classified by body mass index (BMI). You can calculate your BMI using a measure of your weight (kg) divided by your height (m2). Classifications of BMI (kg/m2) are underweight <18.5, Normal weight 18.5-24.9, Overweight 25-29.9, class 1 obesity 30-304.9, class 2 35-39.9 and class 4 obesity >40. You can also use the NHS online calculator which uses your height, weight, age and gender. In 2003/2004, the mean body mass index (BMI) of men and women in the UK general population was 27kg/m2 , outside the healthy range of 18.5-25kg/m2. However your BMI does not account for body fat distribution. Waist circumference measurement is considered to have better validity and has a closer association with morbidity and mortality.

Causes of Obesity  

Public Health England suggests obesity is complex with multiple causes of individual and environmental factors of psychology, physical activity and food consumption. Societal influences of media, education, peer pressure or culture affects our choices. Furthermore the individual’s biology influences of ill health and genetics. Overall partition sizes are larger and the macronutrient balance of foods has changed with refined carbohydrates/ processed foods now making up 20% of the grocery budget compared to 11% in 1982 and meats declining from 31.3% to 21.5% (Public Health England). Trends in household purchases of food and drink saw the greatest increase in cheese (13%), sugar and preserves (9%), alcoholic drinks (5%) and bread (5%) between 2014 and 2018. In 2018, only 28% of adults were eating the UK recommended diet and nutrition target of five portions of fruit and vegetables per day (NHS 2020).
