Over 60% of Americans have at least one chronic health condition and over 40% have been diagnosed with at least two chronic diseases, including heart disease, hypertension, stroke, cancer and diabetes. Fortunately, many of these conditions can be prevented and treated with diet and lifestyle changes. But, understandably, many people find it difficult to make these changes alone. That’s where a nutritionist can help!
It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the amount of information, and often conflicting advice, instructing you what to eat to lose weight and stay healthy. The truth is, everyone’s bodies and needs are unique so what works for one person may not work for another. A nutritionist can help you navigate which foods are working for you and which ones may be keeping you from achieving your weight loss and wellness goals. By gathering a detailed health history and evaluating your current diet and lifestyle habits, a nutritionist will be able to suggest practical diet and lifestyle modifications to help you reach your personal health and wellness goals.
