Weight loss advice from Boots
customers want to lose weight, their pharmacist is a good first
point of call," said Boots Pharmacist Angela Chalmers, "They
will be able to ascertain a method of weight loss which would
be suitable, provide advice and set realistic goals. They are
there to help the customer and monitor their progress, so they
really don't have to go it alone. They don't even have to make
an appointment, just pop into their local Boots store."
first step towards losing weight is for customers to find out
which for a healthy person is between 18.5 and 24.9. Boots has
installed easy-to-use Healthy-Weight Check Machines in larger
stores throughout the UK which enable customers to ensure they
are making the right weight-loss
decision for their individual needs. The machines give a healthy
weight assessment that measures their height, weight, and BMI
at the cost of just 50 pence.
those on a reduced calorie and lower fat diet, they may find it
helpful to consider supplementation, to help ensure they are meeting
all their nutritional needs while on a diet.
Positive Healthcare Technical Expert Nick Bennett said: "If
customers are taking a weight
loss product that reduces fat absorption, then they may wish
to consume extra fat soluble vitamins and important fatty acids
such as EPA and DHA which may otherwise be lacking in the diet.
A good way to do this is by building a foundation of supplementation
to include a complete A-Z of vitamins and minerals, an omega 3
supplement, such as a high strength fish oil, and a probiotic
supplement to help maintain the health of the digestive tract
while it experiences potentially radical changes in food intake."
