Anti-diet classes launched
A NUTRITION coach has joined a campaign calling for women to ditch the diet.
Rebecca Avgerinopoulou, from Macclesfield, has backed a new movement to help women move away from dieting fads and embrace their health.
She is running classes called Ditch the Diet from Morton Hall Community Centre.
Rebecca said the Ditch the Diet programme is aimed at women who have struggled with their weight, those who have yo-yo dieted and those who are confused about what to eat.
She said: “Dieting doesn’t work. In 2014 approximately 27 million people were on a diet, and this number only grows year on year. This is something Ditch the Diet is aiming to change for good. We want women to reclaim their health, to ditch the dieting mentality, chase after their health and wellbeing and let weight loss come as a by-product. If we see women coming back time and time again to our program we have failed. The idea is for us to educate women on what foods are best to eat, the importance of stress, lifestyle factors, how the gut works and problematic foods, easy ways to incorporate exercise into your life, and to make it all part of your life, not for a diet to be your life. We want Ditch the Diet to ultimately change the way women think about themselves, the food they eat, and the whole dogma surrounding dieting.”
