What’s your reason?

Life often gets in the way of us doing the things we know are important but don’t feel we have the time to deal with properly. This is often the case with our health.

How many times have you thought, one day… I’ll lose a few kilos, eat better, walk more, start playing sport again, address my sleep issues, quit smoking, cut back on alcohol, or sugar or salt? One day…

If any of these sound familiar, you are not alone! However, health issues can catch up with us when we least expect it.

How we live, how active we are and what we eat are all lifestyle factors. They have a major influence on whether we enjoy good health or develop diseases in the future. Chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, some cancers, and even the risk of having a stroke, are often influenced by lifestyle factors.

 

What the program offers

My health for life is about behaviour change. Eligible participants take part in a six month program that helps them to move past the barriers that stand in the way of making healthy choices and positive lifestyle change. The program is free. There are no clubs to join, weigh-ins, special food or gym-style programs involved. Our emphasis is on providing a respectful and supportive environment.

We believe healthy change is best achieved in manageable steps. We show you how to set realistic goals and develop an action plan for success and we support you on your journey to get your health back on track.

What to expect

The first session is a one-on-one, personalised appointment to help tailor the program to your needs. Session two, three, four, five and six are either delivered by phone at a time that suits you, or in small groups. Your My Nutrition Clinic facilitators are Accredited Practising Dietitians.

This program takes a different approach to getting healthy. So, why not find out if My health for life works for you.

Make changes today so you can enjoy good health now and tomorrow.
