How many times have you heard about the importance of restricting some food? And some professional carrying out nutritional terrorism? Countless, right? The truth is that people who restrict foods without having any intolerance generally do so because they follow a guru/doctor who sensationalizes nutrition, based on biased scientific arguments and in nutrition, we do not defend extremist positions. The big problem with following “crazy diets” is that over time it becomes unsustainable, in addition to the risk of developing eating disorders and damaging your social and family relationships, generating enormous frustration. In nutrition we believe that extremism is not the way. It's important to enjoy the journey and change your relationship with food. Don't think about the finish line, enjoy the entire journey and the good transformations. Hugs and see you next time, Erick PinheiroNutritionist
On November 14th, the world comes together to raise awareness and educate about diabetes. This date is an important opportunity to highlight the importance of physical activity in the management and control of diabetes, improving quality of life and reducing complications. Let's explore why physical activity is a powerful ally in the fight against diabetes and how you can benefit from it. Benefits of Physical Activity for People with Diabetes 1. Blood Sugar Control Physical activity helps the body use insulin more effectively, which results in more stable blood sugar levels. This is especially important for those with type 2 diabetes, which is often associated with insulin resistance. 2. Improves Insulin Sensitivity Regular exercise can increase the body's sensitivity to insulin, allowing cells to more easily capture glucose from the blood, which is essential for controlling diabetes. 3. Weight Control Maintaining a healthy weight is vital for those with diabetes. Physical activity helps burn calories, control weight and reduce body fat, which helps improve insulin sensitivity. 4. Reducing the Risk of Complications Regular exercise can help reduce the risk of diabetes-related complications, such as heart disease, high blood pressure and kidney problems. 5. Improved General Well-Being Exercise releases endorphins, which improve mood, reduce stress and increase the feeling of well-being, contributing to emotional balance, which is so important for managing diabetes. World Diabetes Day Awareness World Diabetes Awareness Day is an occasion to remind everyone, not just those living with diabetes, about the importance of prevention, early diagnosis and appropriate management.

At Movement, we're passionate about health and wellness, and that's not just limited to our customers - it's also a fundamental part of our corporate culture. Proof of this is our internal project "Health & Movement", an initiative created to encourage our employees to embrace well-being in the workplace. Since its launch in late 2022, the "Saúde & Movimento" project has been a resounding success at Movement. It offers our employees the opportunity to commit to their own health and quality of life, perfectly aligning with our commitment to "We are Alive and Healthy". This program includes personalized support with qualified trainers, access to our state-of-the-art gym in the showroom during certain periods of the day, an application for tracking training, periodic assessments and exclusive discounts on supplements from our partner brands. It is no surprise that, since its inception, 20% of our employees have already joined the project, with a waiting list for the coming months. More than Healthy Bodies Although improving physical health is one of the main goals, "Health & Movement" goes further. It also contributes to reducing stress, relieving pain and preventing health problems, creating a healthier and more productive work environment. Furthermore, the project strengthens our corporate culture, reinforcing the message that taking care of our health is part of our DNA, and that we are committed to democratizing well-being from the inside out. The Highlight: Leonardo Abreu Within the project, one name stands out: Leonardo Abreu. His dedication and commitment led him to achieve a remarkable transformation in his life.
