Research-based weight loss program gets Australian launch
Sum Sanos, a new weight loss program based on research work undertaken at Bond University on the Gold Coast is based on an understanding that habits and behaviours, not diets and exercise, are the best way to lose and sustain weight loss.
Looking to change the way people lose weight, Sum Sanos is based on scientific research conducted by Dr Gina Cleo.
As Sum Sanos Chief Operating Officer and Wellness Coach, Kate Krieg explains, “based on Dr Cleo’s groundbreaking research, Sum Sanos is aimed specifically at cutting through the noise and giving people solutions that really work.
“Dr Cleo’s work is life changing and you can see the amount of notice it’s getting worldwide from scientists and psychologists. I’ve used this method, and I know it works.”
At Sum Sanos’ launch event on the Gold Coast last weekend, attendees heard from Dr Cleo about her work in ‘Interventions Based on Habit Theory’, which explains that by examining the science behind behaviour and habit, participants can achieve weight loss without rigorous diets or prescriptive exercise.
Krieg advised “at Sum Sanos, we don’t want returning participants. We want to equip people with the ability to maintain their changed lives forever.
“Sum Sanos is based on two major elements: the core psychological foundations of a 12 month global coaching program interwoven with Dr Cleo’s scientific research methodologies. We want to be the final stop on our clients’ weight loss journey.”
Dr Cleo advises that participants can reach their goals by examine their own habits, stating “about half of our everyday behaviour is automatic and habitual which means we’re not completely conscious of the decisions that made us partake in that behaviour. We generally sit in the same place to have dinner, eat the same breakfast, eat at similar times of day - not necessarily when we’re hungry.
“We actually make over 200 food decisions everyday - it’s the ones we make subconsciously that are invariably hindering our weight loss success.”
Explaining that Sum Sanos is “not another fad”, Krieg adds “we want to make real, lasting change.
“Unlike other programs which see people regain the weight they have lost after 12 months, our program is life changing and enables participants to avoid ever facing this issue.
“Sum Sanos takes Dr Cleo’s research results and shows people how to apply it to their daily life to achieve weight loss success in a way that is structured and well supported.
“Our expectation is that Sum Sanos will not only help people across Australia to lose weight and improve their health and overall wellness, it will become a game changer the world over for people wanting to lose weight.”
