Defining the four letter word
No diet is a one-size fits all approach. What most people do not know is that the word “diet” originates from the Greek word, 'diaita', which means ‘a way of life’. The term Diet literally means a way of life.
The word diet is sometimes viewed as restricting or depriving, which is why most people do not find being on a diet to be sustainable. However, if you consider your eating habits and food choices as a general way of living, you can achieve sustainable, joyous, and pleasurable ways of eating and living.
How do you start the change?
Changing your way of life needs to be a transitional change and cannot be abrupt. The reason for change must be worthy of your effort and for this we need a focus and a set of goals. Reaching a goal takes time, consistent effort, and continued appreciation. Numen Health brings to you a highly personalized goal oriented, also focusing on nutritional intervention.
However your diet need not be a mere list of foods that you can eat or you must avoid like a checklist, but a scientifically calculated balance of nutrients, your likes & dislikes and replenishments for deficiencies. Here are some of our very unique approaches that have helped hundreds of individuals achieve their own healthy diet.
Moderation is the key
Quality over quantity is the rule here, which is reflected in the portion sizes. Keeping on top of the latest research translates to an up-to-date, scientific and practical approach, that makes it possible for our patients to enjoy their favorite foods during our carefully designed personalized meal plans. Personalized plans ensure that all the major and micro nutrient needs of the body are met in the process educating the patient to learn to listen to his/her body signals.
Live as the Romans do
No fancy diets here- all in the context of the geographical location, affordability and the latest from the research. We understand that fads are short lived and precisely the reason why they don’t picture in the scheme of our lifelong practical habit formation approach.
It takes two to tango
When people are apprehensive about starting something new, we believe they need a holding hand. As a result of our continuous education and unlimited interactions, we help them get on the path of empowerment, belief in themselves and, of course, Numen.
Discipline, discipline and discipline
Timing is the key! We at Numen health make our patients understand how to gel with the body metabolism. In a unified approach to our patients, Numen experts help them pay attention to their circadian rhythm and go with the flow.
Laughter is the best medicine
A cascade of neuropeptide release happens in the brain when one smiles, even a fake one. The happy hormones that are released in the process relieves stress and boosts the immune system. Our group sessions help patients emulate the go-getters, motivates the starters and provides a happy place for laughter and discussion on the learning curve of each Numen family member.
Move on the go
Fidgeting is one of the lesser known components of energy expenditure (Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis). While emphasizing on the defined components (cardio exercises, yoga and walking), we do practice and preach this lesser known component by holding standing meetings, walking while speaking to our patients and soaking in some sunshine vitamin D known to regulate metabolism and ward off cellular damage.
The bottom line
There’s no questioning the importance of healthy food in your life. Your diet affects everything in your body, from your health to your appearance. That is why sustaining your body with the right nutritional needs is crucial. A healthy, balanced diet is the key to a healthy lifestyle, and unless you maintain a proper diet for a healthy body, you may be prone to diseases, infection, or even exhaustion.
Your diet has more impact than you might imagine; keeping your body healthy means keeping your body nourished!
