She has special interest in weight management. She is very experienced in managing clients with weight issues requiring low calorie diet, meal replacements, structured weight loss program or even bariatric surgery. Overweight and obesity is one of the biggest health problems in the world. It is associated with higher risk of developing diabetes, heart disease and certain cancers. Although weight gain is largely a result of eating behaviour and lifestyle, this can also be driven by genetics and hormones.
Hui Xin believes that people can overcome their genetic disadvantages by changing their behaviour and lifestyle. Of course, this requires willpower, dedication and perseverance together with the support from professionals.
