Chooz to Looz

After seeing more than 20,000 clients over 30 years, I (Caron Milham) realised that a lot of people, by the time they had consulted with me, they had spend several years of their life in the process of the ‘yo-yo’ syndrome, having tried meal replacement powders, mass weight loss centres, weekly weigh-in meetings, appetite suppressants and self imposed starvation diets. They were often very unhappy, had a low self-esteem and often ended up bigger than when they first started dieting.

I developed the chooz to looz program for people who have ‘been there and done that’, felt that they are the ones that have failed, when in fact it is probably their diets that had failed them.

How can we help you?

Firstly, our mission is permanent weight control. To help people stop, once and for all, the all too common “yo-yo” like syndrome (ie: repeated weight loss and weight gain) year in, year out.

Our programs not only focus on the mechanics of weight loss, such as diet and exercise, but we work with our clients on the psychological reasons behind positive and negative eating habits and health management.

Our philosophy is not about helping you lose weight quickly, just to have you put it back on when you finish the program. Our programs will teach you how to develop a healthy lifestyle and provide you with the support you need to manage and maintain your ideal weight, permanently.

Secondly, chooz to looz is effective and safe, as the program has been developed by a qualified, experienced Dietitian and offers up to date, professional knowledge.

Thirdly, chooz to looz can be tailored, to suit the individual, to ensure results and personalised care and that the program is easy to follow and convenient. We achieve this by the fact that everybody can personalise their menu plans to suit their needs, hunger levels, lifestyle, tastebuds, eating habits and usual meal routine.

The Chooz to Looz program is available as individual consultations at our clinics or by correspondence (at home, via skype or phone consultations).

How it works?

Individual Option

If you prefer (and can attend) individual consultations with the Dietitian, then you can participate in the chooz to looz® program by attending appointments at our clinics.

For further details on this option, please click here .

If you have extras cover, with most private health funds, you will probably be able to attract a rebate for these consultations.

Correspondence (at home) Option

This Chooz to Looz program option is a convinient, economic option for many people who lead busy lives and/or want to save money or time travelling to a clinic.  It is also the option to chose if you live outside of South Australia. Some of our clients even live on the other side of the world!

Firstly, you will have your comprehensive dietary and lifestyle assessment. Before your fully qualified Dietitian can devise your personalised program, and chooz to looz Menu plans and your first goal weight, the Dietitian has to assess fully your weight history, current dietary intake and lifestyle, attitudes, individual behaviours, family eating habits, hunger level variations, food preferences, and the environmental and your emotional influences on your food intake, together with identification of problem areas.

Following your comprehensive assessment, the Dietitian will develop a nutritional weight loss plan and a personalised written menu plan and daily food guide, and this will be provided to you to suit your specific needs, hunger levels, lifestyle, tastebuds, eating habits and usual meal routine, as much as possible.

In addition to your tailored weight loss plan (created just for you!) and daily food guide and menu plan you will receive your Chooz to looz pack which includes:

  • The Chooz to looz book titled ‘Getting Started'
  • Chooz to looz tools - including a weight loss chart to record your progress; food, exercise and mood record charts so you can track your progress and let your Dietitian know how you are going and a motivational fridge or pantry poster to help control emotional eating.

For your economy and convenience all of the above will be done by email correspondence, in your own time, without leaving you home.

You will then have a Phone/Skype consultation with the Dietitian to have your questions answered, discuss your progress and any problems you may have had. Your Dietitian will have your food intake (and/or other record charts) that you have emailed to her, prior your ‘appointment', to review, before and during your consultation.

Following this consultation you will then have the option to book further Phone/Skype appointments and access more Chooz to Looz products including books.

I have lost 15kg in 14 weeks on the Chooz to Looz program. The Australian Healthy Shopping Guide gave me a lot of information to help me to do my shopping and with choosing my foods.

David Coombe before and after his weight loss of 10kg

I have just achieved my goal weight and lost 10kg on the Chooz to Looz program. The book The Australian Healthy Shopping Guide has helped me to make better food choices. I love my food and with this book I can still do this knowing I have made the right choices. With this book I can repeatedly use it as a reference when needed. It is an essential part of my weight loss and ongoing weight maintenance and I wouldn’t be without it now.

Kathryn Simounds before and after her weight loss of 39kg

I have lost 45kg in 12 months on the Chooz to Looz program. I have found all of Caron Milham's literature helpful, especially the Australian Healthy Shopping Guide book. This book confirmed I was buying the right products and helped me buy different items that I was never sure about. My energy level is much higher, to a level I cannot remember it being before. I am now able to buy clothes 'off the rack', which I haven’t been able to do in 30 years. My blood pressure, blood cholesterol and blood glucose levels have dropped and no longer am I called ‘Borderline Diabetic’.

Kathryn Simounds, O’Halloran Hill SA

 

Jenni Colbert before and after her weight loss of 24kg

I have lost 24kg on the Chooz to Looz program. I found the ‘Australian Healthy Shopping Guide’ book invaluable in giving myself variety in my food types and keeping true to exchanges. The Guide informed me of many labeling ‘traps’ and put me on the right track to making the right choices. I am a lot more relaxed now in food shopping, as the stress I used to feel is replaced by a confident attitude.

Jenni Colbert, South Plympton SA

 

Michael Kristic before and after his weight loss of 20.5kg

I have lost 20.5kg on the Chooz to Looz program and haven't felt this good in 15 years. The 'Australian Healthy Shopping Guide' has helped me very much with my weight loss and with 'shopping smarter'. I had no idea that what I was eating was that bad.
