Instead, we will help you to reduce your total calorie intake by analysing your current eating habits and identifying areas for improvement. Based on your individually prescribed calorie intake, we will create meal plans to help you achieve your total calorie target. At the same time, you will be equipped with essential dietary knowledge and skills to help you achieve a balanced diet. Your progress will be reviewed regularly and adjustments made based on your lifestyle to help you achieve your weight loss target.
