What is nutrition counseling?
The word "dieting" implies that being healthy is only about food. In reality, our diet affects all aspects of life from physical to mental wellbeing. This is why we focus on the benefits of nutritional counseling for people of all ages and how it can help them live a happier and healthier life.
Who Needs Nutritional Counseling?
You may not be aware that your diet can affect your life in many different ways. Nutritional counseling is designed to help people of all ages, from pregnant women to vegetarians and seniors with medical complications.
The list of people who may benefit from nutritional counseling is along. That said, there are a few groups that stand out among the rest. There's those with diabetes and osteoporosis for example. As well as anyone struggling with poor nutrition and eating patterns, eating disorders, digestive complications, HIV/AIDs, cancer or hypertension to name but a few.
These days, it's not uncommon for people to be too busy or exhausted to cook. As a result, many Americans are relying on quick and accessible pre-packaged foods which don't always have the nutrition their bodies need.
Many people with eating disorders find that nutritional counseling is very beneficial because they're able to adjust their diet accordingly and recover faster from their illness.
Nutrition Counseling an Integral Part of Comprehensive Wellness Plan
People often think that fitness equals weight loss but not true. Fitness has been proven to improve both physical and mental well-being. Nutrition counseling helps clients understand what types of foods are best for their body type, goals, lifestyle, age group, etc., which will help them have a more healthy and happy lifestyle because they'll be able to make better choices throughout their day.
For the betterment of your health, our nutrition counselors will help you set and reach achievable health goals. Whether you’re looking to lose weight or get better control of diabetes, we can help you with that.
Here’s the rundown on how nutrition counseling can benefit you.
Benefit #1 – A new study found that better management of chronic conditions can be achieved by eating a diet very low in salt, fat, and sugar. For example, Type 2 diabetes can be reversed with the help of nutrition counseling.
Benefit #2 - Weight loss is a common issue for many people. It can be difficult to lose weight on your own because you don't have an expert guide viewing the big picture. With the guidance of a nutrition counselor, you'll know how to create a meal plan that promotes wellness and weight management.
A nutrition counselor is able to provide the key components that are necessary for maintaining a healthy diet and weight. They will work with you in order to create an individualized plan that changes your unhealthy eating habits into positive, lifelong ones. This process not only helps you lose weight but also keeps it off long-term!
A nutrition counselor carefully evaluates your eating habits in order to develop an individualized plan that suits both your needs and lifestyle. As a result of this method, participants tend to weigh less than those who don't see a nutritionist as well as maintain their new low body weights over time.
Benefit #3 – Healthy habits that last. Clients who partner with a nutrition counselor are more likely to gain tools and learn habits that last for the long haul. Once you learn about proper nutrition and how to apply it to your daily wellness plan, you’ll have the knowledge needed for better choices. As opposed to drastic dietary changes, which may only lead to short-term success, they act as a foundation for lasting change.
Benefit #4 – A nutrition counselor can help you improve your overall wellness by using good nutrition to increase energy, improve sleep quality, strengthen the immune system, and reduce symptoms of disease.
Benefit #5 – In order to build and maintain a solid frame, it's important to develop your diet. A nutrition counselor can help you set up an individualized meal plan that will meet the demands of your body type and desired fitness goals. By understanding exactly what your body needs for optimal health and performance, you'll be able to skip trial-and-error diets while reaching all of your fitness aspirations.
What to expect during your first appointment
I was nervous when I attended my first nutrition counseling session. It's one of the most important appointments for me because it can help with so many things like improving your health and getting to know what the best foods are for you. To make sure everything went smoothly, my counselor asked about my goals and objectives. It felt really good to have someone care about what I wanted and how they could help me achieve them!
The counselor will delve into your lifestyle to get a sense of how much stress is in your life, the quality and quantity of your sleep, your energy levels, and physical activity.
They will also ask about dietary habits, identify trouble spots like late-night snacking or cooking preferences. The counselor will use this information to tailor a nutrition plan that’s suited for you!
