Tazafit Nutritionist Discusses Importance of Metabolism In Eating Behaviors

Nutritionist Emma Brinson of Tazafi says today’s generation has to have more information for developing the right eating behaviors to lose weight or to stay fit. Ms. Brinson observed that currently, most people engage in strenuous physical activities in order to burn calories. However, after running for miles, or after exerting themselves out in gyms, they tend to produce zero weight-loss productivity by going back to consuming their fave burger, pizza, pasta or other high-calorie foods.

As a professional nutritionists, she wants to raise awareness that people can still have tasty food choices, while at the same time maintain healthy diets. Ms. Brison asserts that this is possible by taking into account their individual metabolism, as it plays a huge part of nutrition when eating to stay physically fit and healthy.

She gives emphasis on metabolism as the core reason for nearly everything that is happening in a human body. On that note, Ms. Brison draws attention to an integrated fitness program called Metabolic Renewal.

What Makes Metabolic Renewal Different from Other Fitness Programs?

 

The Metabolic Renewal program recognizes the fact that every person is different, including their hormone levels. While an individual can eat and do physical activities as part of a fitness regime, the results can be encouraging only if the meals and workouts were planned based on a person’s metabolic hormones.

Under the Metabolic Renewal program, each participant is analyzed by way of the Metabolic Renewal Quiz, to which the results will provide insights about the metabolic rate of a person. The questions asked focus on factors that influence an individual’s metabolic rate such as age, gender, menstrual cycle, geographical location, living environment and occupation, just to name a few.

Insights include determining a hormone type that would cause a female body to resist weight loss, a tendency that is indicated by the fat depositions in select areas of a person’s body. The quiz also determines if there are existing metabolic stresses that exist when responding to specific certain life-like scenarios.

Dr. Jade Teta, the developer of the Metabolic Renewal program explains that the metabolic renewal quiz is designed to help women regularize the aspects of their lifestyle and health conditions in relation to their respective menstrual cycle.
The results of the metabolic renewal quiz, aim to reveal the hormone type that is predominant in a woman’s body and about its nature. The information will then serve as the basis for categorizing a female participant into a specific metabolic renewal class, in which the metabolic meals and workouts address the specific needs or goals of a participant.

Dr. Teta, whose specialization is on natural health, explains that the Metabolic Renewal program is expected to work best for women, because it addresses a female body’s estrogenic tendencies, including the development of belly fat, and in some cases, inclinations to resist weight loss actions.

Factors Contributing to Romania’s Growing Obesity Problem

In 2016 Eurostat reported that Romania is the least obese country in Europe, although at that time male obesity had grown substantially from 13.8 to 23.4 %. New studies In 2017 noted that Romanians were getting fatter every year. Currently, global statistics on obesity show that Romania now ranks No.76 with an obesity rate of 22.50%; slightly higher than Germany’s 22.30%, which now ranks No. 79 despite being the country that was ranked a decade ago as the fattest country in Europe.

While Romanians make general claims that they are into sports activities and are eating healthily, recent statistics show that Romanian people are becoming more and more overweight from year to year. According to the results of a study commissioned by Ponderas Academic Hospital, more than half of the adult population in Romania is overweight or obese. Around 40% have been struggling to reduce their extra weight in the past five years while 25% have been struggling with obesity problems for the last 10 years or so.

Factors that Caused Romanians to Become Overweight or Obese

The Ponderas survey also showed that the major cause of excessive weight among Romanians is their poor nourishment behaviors. Around 400,000 Romanians have shared that they have more than 6 meals per day, while 1 million responded that they only eat once. Moreover, it also revealed that over a quarter of the total number of respondents surveyed do not eat breakfast as a habit. Some 22% of those who responded believe that dinner and not breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Nourishment activities to 90% involves eating their dinner after 6:00 p.m.

Another critical factor that has caused the increase of obesity rates in Romania is that most Romanians consume plenty of meat, sweets and bread on a daily basis, Statistics show that 4 out of 10 Romanians eat bread everyday, while 40% consume pastries and sweets everyday About 12% regularly eat in fast food chains as weekly treats.

Some Romanians struggling with weight problems do not even think they have one, as only 8% of the respondents confessed that they do gave weight problems. The BMI aspect of the Ponderas study revealed that over 20% of Romanians are obese, which means they have reached BMIs of more than 30.

Romanian Consumers Push For Self Care Products

During the year 2015, local self-care companies in Romania were targeted by a proposed law that aimed to ban mass media advertising of over-the-counter self care products that consumers preferred because they were affordable. However local pharmacy chains, media agency associations and industry players banded together to counter the proposed bill, since would deprive Romanians of information about the affordable self care products they can use.

Many were relieved that bill was dismissed a year later as a result of the concerted and continuous efforts to push for persuasive logic. As proactive action in preventing similar laws that would deprive the Romanian people with affordable self-care products, members of the self-care industry organized themselves as The Romanian Association of the Self-Care Industry (RASCI), Their main mission is to follow the best practices and examples set by other countries in the EU.

The constant increase of self-care products in Romania’s market is also indicative of the increased purchasing power of the population. The self-care industry’s increased attention on prevention, and the development of new weight loss products like Reduslim România found favor among overweight consumers primarily because of their improved efficiency in helping them burn fat instead of storing them in fat cells.

Still, RASCI’s members have conveyed annoyance over the delays in approving regulations for food supplements. According to RASCI, it jeopardizes consumers’ safety since obesity is becoming increasingly common in Romania.
