Your dietician or nutritionist may be your first line of both defense and knowledge when it comes to learning how to make better food choices throughout the day. Sometimes it seems that they are telling us more and more foods we need to stay away from rather than what foods to embrace. The following are just a few things your nutritionist may want you to know that they might not bring up themselves at your appointments.
Which Diet Should I Choose?
One of the most commonly asked questions for any dietician or nutrition counselor would be the client asking which is the best diet to choose when trying to lose weight and get healthy. Well, most of them don’t feel as if one diet is really superior to the next.
Instead, they will help you find an approach that is best for your body and your nutritional needs and situation. They will also almost always advise that you stay clear of sugary sodas and processed foods.
They Don’t Want to Just Enforce the Rules
They do not like to be considered food enforcers and people who are there to tell you that your entire diet is wrong. They help people because they love food and nutrition, not because they want to make people miserable.
Nutrition counselors and dieticians can offer helpful suggestions on new ways to enjoy food and may even be able to get you to explore a little and discover new foods you may actually like. They will also teach you how to prepare these dishes in a healthier way so you can eat what you love but gain all the possible benefits and nutrients you can by modifying a few unhealthy habits you may have picked up over the years.
They Also Like the Occasional Treat
While it may seem like they can do no wrong or eat no wrong thing, they are still people and still do enjoy the occasional treat. They allow themselves the opportunity to indulge in their other favorites from time to time, but they do not allow it to affect the way they see and teach about nutrition and healthy living. In reality, it may even help them do their job better because they suddenly become more relatable because they are real people that face the same struggles and temptation that the rest of us do.
