DIETITIAN Andrew Simpson will be pass on some of his expert advice on Friday at a special lunch talk, entitle “Eat, drink and be healthy, an expert guide to weight management”.
Mr Simpson is a clinical educator in dietetics at the University of Canberra. In his talk he will serve a three-course, scientifically-balanced lunch and speak about general strategies for lifestyle-based weight management, including health eating and drinking, filling up without excess, eating with awareness, increasing your activity levels and managing your own lifestyle.
“Losing weight can be difficult and should not be about short-term-based approaches like dieting,” Mr Simpson said.
He said replacing the fad diet with a practical weight management strategy will lead to a healthier and more satisfying lifestyle over the long term.
“It is well documented that there are multiple reasons why weight gain occurs, incorporating a lifestyle approach to weight loss has been indicated as a successful strategy to losing weight and keeping it off,” he said.
“Eat, drink and be healthy, an expert guide to weight management” with Andrew Simpson, at 12.15pm to 1.30pm on Friday at the University of Canberra, Building 24, Ann Harding Conference Centre.
