Active for Life – Green Prescription – June 2021
herWhat is your background with health and fitness like?
Prior to joining Green Prescription, Dana wasn’t very active & needed to lose weight. Danas nutrition was also not the best.
How was your journey with green prescription?
Dana started going to the aqua classes at Glenfield leisure center and walking every day. She slowly did more intense workouts
What was your main goal when joining the green prescription programme?
Dana wanted to lose weight (3.5kg) and become fitter.
What results/impact has your journey had?
Dana’s nutrition was not the best but she took out lots of carbohydrates and made healthier substitutions like swapping white bread out for wholegrain bread. Dana started to eat more plant based, reduced her cheese intake and started eating hummus and yoghurt instead.
Dana achieved a weight loss of 2 kilos, her general health improved as well as the prevention of diabetes. the exercise that she has completed now means she is no longer in the pre-diabetic bracket.
The referral to the green prescription nutritionist Cherise was very helpful to me as well as the seminar for pre-diabetics and diabetics
What are your future goals?
Dana is very proud of how far she has come and wants to continue to be active every day and lose another 5kg, she wants to continue to make healthy lifestyle choices for the benefit of her health.
