At Coral Coast Pharmacies we believe in promoting "Health and Happiness".
Our team will assist you on your individual journey with obtaining a healthy lifestyle.  Here is some information that may assist you:

 The Dietary Guidelines for Australian Adults ( http://www.health.gov.au/internet/healthyactive/publishing.nsf/Content/eating 2003) are:

  • Enjoy a wide variety of nutritious foods
  • Eat plenty of vegetables, legumes and fruits
  • Eat plenty of cereals (including breads, rice, pasta and noodles), preferably wholegrain
  • Include lean meat, fish, poultry and/or alternatives
  • Include milks, yoghurts, cheeses and/or alternatives
  • reduced-fat varieties should be chosen, where possible
  • Drink plenty of water

and take care to:

  • Limit saturated fat and moderate total fat intake
  • Choose foods low in salt
  • Limit your alcohol intake if you choose to drink
  • Consume only moderate amounts of sugars and foods containing added sugars

Prevent weight gain: be physically active and eat according to your energy needs

Care for your food: prepare and store it safely

Here are some healthy eating tips for maintaining a healthy weight:

  • Eat breakfast and don’t skip meals
    • eat a wide variety of foods each day
    • keep ‘extra’ foods, such as biscuits, cakes, chocolate and chips to a minimum
  • Reduce the amount of fat you eat
    • limit saturated fat - saturated fats are usually solid at room temperature and are the main fats in milk, cream, butter, cheese and some meats
    • choose reduced fat dairy products
    • limit the amount of ‘take away’ food
    • select lean meat and remove visible fat before cooking
    • choose low fat cooking methods, for example - stir fry, grill, microwave, non stick cooking pans
  • Eat more low kilojoule foods such as wholegrains, fruits and vegetables
    • 2 serves of fruit and 5 serves of vegetables each day
  • Drink more water – instead of soft drink and fruit juice
    • limit your alcohol intake if you choose to drink
  • Read food labels – especially for fat, sugar and energy (kilojoule/calorie) levels
  • Eat smaller portions, eat slowly, don’t fill your plate, try a smaller plate, don’t feel that you need to finish every meal.

Our team may suggest IsoWhey which is an easy to digest, nutritional protein powder that may assist you with your weight loss.

IsoWhey Complete® is a high quality, easy-to-digest, nutritional protein powder. It contains ultra-purified whey protein isolate and high-grade whey concentrate, providing 15-16g of high quality, biologically active protein per serve. IsoWhey Complete® also contains 12 vitamins, 11 minerals, glutamine, medium chain triglycerides, as well as mineral co-factors such as chromium.

After a long run of success with the original IsoWhey Complete® formulation, IsoWhey Complete® underwent a makeover in mid 2011 to include new ingredients to support digestive health while helping to assist weight management goals.

IsoWhey Complete® now features an exclusive blend of three ingredients:

  • Litesse® - a low GI fibre that satisfies the appetite and nourishes probiotics
  • Probiotics - for intestinal balance
  • Digestive enzymes - to keep digestion running on time

IsoWhey Complete® is still free from artificial sweeteners, being naturally sweetened with xylitol. It's also free from casein, GMO ingredients, artificial flavours, artificial colours, preservatives and gluten. It is low in carbohydrates and fat, and contains only 0.8g of lactose per serve.

IsoWhey Complete® is a high protein, low carb, low-fat, meal replacement shake. Following the IsoWhey® Healthy Living Programs, 1-2 meals per day are replaced with a delicious and nutritious IsoWhey Complete® shake. The shake has been designed to provide you with an instant source of nutrition and energy without rapidly increasing blood sugar or insulin response.

By including a high protein meal replacement shake as part of your weight management program, you will be more likely to feel fuller for longer and experience less cravings. Protein is also important for building lean muscle - that's good news because having more lean muscle mass helps you burn more fat.
