Understanding the Science behind BB

Managing your weight is a mind and body game. Setting realistic goals is the first step. Calorie controlled meal replacements, a balanced diet and light exercise is the game plan. Your Betty Baxter Consultant will step you through a measured program designed to regulate food intake and ramp up fat burning while maintaining and toning lean muscle. The results will have you looking good and feeling fantastic.

All diets are about balancing calorie intake and calorie burning. In the early stages, burning more than you consume results in stored body fat being used as a fuel source. The  most important thing is to lose fat, not muscle and water – and that’s what the BB Program is all about.

Betty Baxter Weight Management is an holistic program designed by dietitians in touch with all the issues of weight management. They know you don’t want to starve, so there’s plenty of variety, taste and choice. They know the value of extra motivation now and then, so you’ll have a consultant to help with that.

And they know people can be a little moody when they diet, so the program is designed to deliver an improved sense of wellbeing while you burn off the kilos.

Here’s why BB works:

BB GETS THE CARBS RIGHT:
CSIRO studies show that a high protein, low GI carbohydrate meal plan consistently gets the best results. So that’s what we do. But there’s another benefit. Low GI carbs result in a more positive mood stabilisation, greater satisfaction and higher energy levels – so you’ll be smiling all the way to the scales.

BB CUTS THE CALORIES:  
The calorie intake for each phase of the program is devised for optimal weight loss without the trauma of gnawing hunger pangs. It’s nutritious, delicious and satisfying with two levels of calorie control, because eating too little can be detrimental.

BB’S BIG ON FIBRE:
A high fibre intake increases adherence to a low calorie diet  by improving feelings of satisfaction. So there’s fibre in our shakes and a high  fibre content in your healthy food options.

BB KNOWS YOU ONLY WANT TO LOSE FAT:
So we monitor results to ensure you’re not losing muscle and water.
