Unless you have a food intolerance or want to lose weight, why would anyone need to contact a nutritionist?
The health industry is growing, quickly. And for us normal folk, it’s only getting more confusing. While you may think nutritionists are only for the rich, famous or unwell, there are actually many ways a nutrition professional can help you. Here are five things you didn’t expect:
If you’re sick of dieting, it’s time for change. Fad diets and cutting out food groups aren’t sustainable ways of eating, for anyone. Plus, your body is unique and therefore won’t work in the same way as others. A nutritionist can guide you through your journey, assess your current lifestyle habits and create a tailored plan, specific to you and your body. Say goodbye to that cabbage soup!
You’re in the midst of your health journey; going to the gym and eating a balanced diet, but progress has slowed. Now, you’re not doing anything wrong, but our bodies are clever. They adapt and quickly get used to this new lifestyle. If progress has plateaued, it’s time to mix things up. A nutritionist can help you kick this routine and introduce you to the next steps in your journey.
As we go through life, our body will change. Whether this is through pregnancy and menopause, illness or a medical diagnosis, such as diabetes or Crohn’s disease. It may be through choice, like training for a marathon. Whatever stage in your life, our diets need to change to suit this new lifestyle. A nutrition professional can help you begin this new stage of life, with tailored advice and support.
If you’re stressed, it’s likely your routine has slipped. While you normally prepare lunches and regularly workout, stress takes no prisoners. Suddenly other tasks are more important and your health is no longer a priority. Stress can affect us mentally and physically. Loss of appetite, comfort eating, headaches and lack of sleep are common symptoms. A nutritionist can help you understand why you’re stressed and get you back on track.
Your skin is a reflection of what’s going on inside. If your health falters, your skin will appear dull and deflated. But if you eat well and look after yourself, your skin will appear radiant and plump. If you’re suffering from dry, dull skin, or are experiencing a skin condition, like acne, it may be down to your diet. A nutrition professional can help you get back that glow!Ellen Hoggard is a writer for Nutritionist Resource.
