Scrap 'fad diets' this New Year and focus on holistic health, warns doc
Keto? Intermittent fasting?
Dr Fundile Nyathi has warned those making new year resolutions not to fall for “quick fix” diets and fads.
Instead, the doctor has encouraged people to take a holistic approach to their health this year - improving their physical, mental, spiritual and social health.
He says getting healthy should not be reduced to weight loss alone.
Furthermore, the wellness expert has warned that many of the popular fad diets do not offer balanced nutrition.
The approach must not be a short term approach. The short-term benefits are actually causing damage.Dr Fundile Nyati, CEO - Proactive Health Solutions
