The health and wellbeing of our customers is our first priority. New You offers a high protein diet plan that, when followed correctly, gives on average a weight loss of 1 stone per month for women and 1.5 stone per month for men. These results are not guaranteed in any way and are simply an indication of what is average. Please check out our facebook page or weight loss challenges to see the results are current customers are getting.
Blood Pressure Monitoring
We do recommend that you have your blood pressure taken every month – this can be done with your GP, practice nurse, or at any pharmacy or supermarket offering this FREE service.
On the New You programme you can drink water, any leaf tea and coffee our bodies need water to ensure they work properly, it is very important to give your body a regular supply of fluids. It is recommended that you drink between 2.5 and 4 litres of water each day. Treat your body like a water mill and give it a small regular supply of water to help it function efficiently. We advise that you drink one 500ml bottle of water per hour, continue this over a 5 or 6 hour period – it is dangerous to drink huge amounts of water at any one time – to flood your body in this way can be very dangerous. There is no magic number where fluid intake is concerned this will vary between different people due to their height, age, activity level and body-fat composition. Be guided by your own thirst and listen to your body.
New You advice is for guidance only and should not be used in any way as a replacement for the correct medical advice – We recommend that you do consult your GP or medical practitioner before starting any diet or exercise programme.
WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU SEEK AND ACT UPON THE ADVICE OF YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE STARTING AN LOW CALORIE DIET PROGRAM.
