It’s common for people to think their nutritionist will tell them they have to “eat this way” and “stop eating those foods.” While many professionals may give this advice, I know that it causes feelings of deprivation, disrupting your progress.
When we work together, my job is to inform and problem-solve with you. Then, we come up with possible changes together. These changes can be focused on nutrition, physical activity, sleep, stress, or supplemental/herbal products when relevant. In the end, you decide on a change you’d like to try.
The change can be a baby step such as eating a serving of fresh fruit five days a week or as complex as switching to a Mediterranean diet. When we meet again, we’ll review your experience with the change and consider your next steps.
Luckily, there are many roads to your health goal. If you aren’t interested or motivated by a specific nutrition strategy, we’ll develop something new. Ultimately, it’s all about sustainable changes for lifelong health, so there’s no need to stick with methods that don’t work.
