Your food choices have a large influence on how you feel from day to day, in addition to the impact it can have on your long-term health. Good nutrition is an essential part of leading a healthy lifestyle. A healthy diet can help in maintaining a healthy weight, as well as reducing the risk of chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease, whilst enhancing your quality of life. Using their knowledge of the science of food, nutritionists can assist you in making good food choices.
The initial consultation will explore details of your current lifestyle, activity levels and health goals. A nutritional plan can then be agreed which fulfils your optimal calorie and macronutrient needs. You’ll be given advice on meal plans, shopping lists, supplementation and exercise plans. If felt helpful, the nutritionist can mentor you through the dietary changes to ensure effective results.
A nutritionist can provide tailored nutritional advice to:
- Improve health
- Aid weight loss
- Enhance sports performance
