Importance Of Self-Managed Weight Loss

Are you sick and tired of weight loss programs not delivering long-term improvements in your health?

Adelaide Exercise Physiology and Dietitian Services pride themselves on delivering quality, self-managed weight loss advice to help you take control of your weight and health.

The comparison between AEP’s weight loss service and some common weight loss programs is shown below. Although AEP don’t supply meals to your door, they give you the vital skills to help manage your weight long-term. In our view, this is far more important then supplying your meals, but failing to educate you about the importance of a healthy lifestyle and assisting you with sustainable change.
