One-on-one sessions with a registered dietitian gives you personally tailored nutrition advice to help you reach your health goals. Whether those goals are weight loss, management of a chronic disease, or living a healthier life.
Changing our lifestyle and the way we eat is not easy. A registered dietitian understands this and that is why they provide you with more than just information. They offer guidance, support, and motivation to help you make and maintain lifestyle changes. They will help you create a realistic eating plan that suits your needs and provide you with the accountability you need to keep those changes going. Making changes can be overwhelming. A dietitian focuses on helping you create small attainable goals so that you can build new habits.
If you have a chronic disease, a dietitian can help you understand your condition and provide you with education about the nutrients that affect it. They will work with you to create an eating plan that can help you manage your condition.
If you are wanting to lose weight, a dietitian can help you develop a safe and effective weight loss plan that you can stick with for the long haul. Because for weight loss to last, the plan you follow needs to last too.
What to expect when meeting with a Dietitian:
At your first appointment expect to do a lot of talking while the dietitian does a lot of listening. In order to best help you, the dietitian needs to learn your health history, eating and activity habits, as well as your food likes and dislikes. The dietitian will then provide you with some information and suggestions for changes to help you achieve your goals.
Follow-up appointments help you keep the change going. They are when you and the dietitian can really dig into creating an eating plan that helps you achieve your goals. They will provide you with more knowledge about nutrition and your health. Change is a process, follow-up appointments will help guide you through it and answer any questions or concerns you have along the way. Challenges are a natural part of change. The dietitian will help find solutions and tweak your plan to make it work for you.
