Confidence and fulfillment are just two of the great feelings that a person experience when the body is in good shape. However, due to the sedentary lifestyle, weight-loss through dieting and exercise can sometimes be a pain in the neck. Achieving an ideal body weight needs drive and determination that one needs to religiously work hard for it.
29-year old certified public accountant and audit manager, Ethan Manzano revealed with us his weight-loss journey. “Two years ago, I used to weigh around 205 lbs., “he said. “It was about that time that I agreed to try out Naturhouse Philippines, which was just about to be formally launched then.”
He needs to lose 20 lbs and accepted the fact that it might take some time before he could lose the extra lbs he hoped to lose. Yet, with his passion, patience, drive and determination, he was able to attain the 175 lbs, his ideal weight proportional to his height of 5’8”.
It was during his college days that he reminisced when he can engage in different physical activities and had the time to play basketball with his fit and trim body. By the time he started to work, he noticed that his metabolism slowed down. His stressful environment became the culprit that made him difficult to engage in physical activities like sports and resorted to eating as a way to come with stress.
It was a good thing that he discovered Naturhouse food supplements, a global brand having more than 2000 outlets worldwide. With the help of their personalized nutritionists, Ethan was introduced and lead to a healthier lifestyle.
Whilst Ethan was on the weight-loss challenge program, he was advised to engage into brisk walking or jogging at the same time to strictly follow a diet regimen which was changed every week, depending on the results of his body to the diet.
He only ate cereals, vegetables, fruits, white meat and drank two liters of water every day for the first week. These regimens with the help of food supplements in the form of tablets and liquids provided for him by NaturHouse that week together with exercise, Manzano lost 5 pounds in just one week. Amazing!
In week two, he had a similar diet at the same time he was given a new set of supplements. On the third week, only during lunch that he was allowed to eat pork. fish and beef with less oil and half a cup of rice. Finally, on the fourth week, he was allowed to eat anything and everything, albeit in moderation. On the last day after he was allowed to eat anything, he was asked to take a crash diet of just eating three mangoes or a big watermelon for one day. The following week, his diet was back to normal where he could eat anything in moderation with the right food supplements from NaturHouse.
“What makes NaturHouse unique from the other weight-loss centers in the market is that it is not only a food store but it provides a personalized service based on the clients’ body weight or structure,” says Rick Cabanban, Natur House Philippines Project Leader.
Natur House, situated at SM North EDSA in Quezon City, offers a free assessment to clients done and assisted by their inhouse licensed dietitian and nutritionists.
“They create a personalized diet plan and recommend the food supplements based on the assessment. These nutritionists tailor-fit the diet and the supplements based on the needs of the clients and they don’t believe in single supplement. They encourage variety, ” he explains.
Natur House provides a nutritionist consultation free of charge, which is already a big savings whereas if you are going to consult a nutritionist from a regular medical center to give you a diet plan, it will cost you around Php1,500 and that is for a trial program only.
“It is expensive to consult a nutritionist, but now it can be achieved. Our target markets are B and C. During the cost of the method or program system, say the problem is four kilos overweight, we guarantee .6 to one kilo loss weight. So another two months for stabilization (maintenance), that would cost roughly P1,125 per week. That is still cheap as compared to other slimming programs. Here, you just spend 15 minutes per week to a nutritionist who will recommend you the right products,” he says.
Filipinos are really health-conscious. However, they don’t know the food supplements to be considered. “Most of us have the tendency to self-medicate. Sometimes we starve ourselves and when we don’t see the results, we get frustrated. In Natur House, the nutritionist calls the client to check. If there’s any problem, we restructure everything,” Cabanban says. Natur House also encourages its clients to eat five meals a day. During maintenance period, the client goes back to regular eating method.”By that time, the clients’ body has already gotten use to eating in small portions and everything in moderation.”
A global health brand with more than 2,000 outlets worldwide and over four million clients, Natur House has finally reached the Philippines, the foreign company’s first venture in Asia. It is also planning to open 140 stores nationwide, either company or franchised-owned.
One of the best-selling products at Natur House is the Garcinia Cambogia food supplement from the highest quality plants in Asia which contains an extract called Hydroxcitric Acid (HCA) which blocks fat development by inhibiting the enzyme ATP citrate lyase from converting carbohydrates into fat. When we eat too much carbs and sugars, the body just puts these away as fat. The fat-making process is halted by the HCA in Garcinia Cambogia. Cholesterol is a result of having too much sugar and fat in one’s diet,” said Cabanban.
“Our price range is comparable with other food supplements in the market. The idea is we have the same objective but to get a free nutritionist is an added feature. Natur House does not require any franchise fee when you want to open a business selling our products. Our advocacy is healthy eating and provide jobs for nutritionists,” adds Cabanban.
