Introducing Sum Sanos™
Updated: May 16, 2019
A 12-month, clinically proven weight loss program based on the most recent scientific evidence on habit-based interventions.
Who wouldn't want a fresh start and a chance to achieve their weight loss goals? Sum Sanos™ is a refreshing approach for those who have 'tried it all'.
Why we've been getting it wrong
The weight loss industry in Australia is worth $635 million, yet almost two out of three Australians are overweight or obese and these numbers are continuing to climb. We are spending more and more money only to find we are fatter than ever.
How are we getting it so wrong?
“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results”
There are so many commercial diet options available on the market today. We are drawn in by quick fixes, many of which involve eating and exercise programs which are unsustainable in the long term.
Technology changes mean we are able to get information from everywhere and anywhere. Much of it is unsupported by evidence or research and as a result, people are more confused than ever about what healthy eating actually means. I had a client once who was trying to make a healthy change by taking salads for her work lunches. The salads were not filling her up, so every lunch time she was adding in a couple of fried potato cakes from the local fish 'n chip shop. When I suggested she may find a sandwich more filling, her response was "I can't eat bread, it's unhealthy".
When we passively follow programs or diets, we are not addressing the reasons behind our unhealthy behaviours and habits. Until we address these, any 'program' we follow is only going to yield short term results.
Why is Sum Sanos™ different?
The statistic around dieting are actually quite depressing. Of those who diet and lose weight, 95% will regain the weight they lost (and more!) within two to five years.
"The research unquestionably confirms Habit-Based Intervention as a reliable way to lose weight long-term and achieve lifelong wellness" - Dr. Gina Cleo
Unlike other programs which prescribe strict diets and exercise programs, Sum Sanos™ focuses on habit-based interventions, aimed to create sustainable healthy habits which become an automatic part of our day. The best part about habits happening automatically (automaticity) is that it frees up mental space for other things in life.
Throughout the entire program you will have the support and guidance of a coach who will work with you one on one. This is not a 'one size fits all' style program like many of the commercial options currently available.
How does Sum Sanos™ work?
As a Sum Sanos™ client you will receive:
12 months of support from a highly qualified health coach, including monthly coaching sessions and weekly telephone follow up
A comprehensive study guide for you to use throughout your sessions
Access to the private community Facebook group
Access to online Wellness Webinars hosted by Dr. Gina Cleo, habit change expert
There are no meal plans or rigorous exercise sessions to follow. This is about working with your coach to identify areas in your own life that could be improved and creating practical solutions to address them.
Does it work?
In short, yes. But like most things, you get out of it what you put in. So if you are willing to invest some time and energy, you will find this program will not only improve your health, but the knowledge and skills you gain will flow on to other areas of your life.
