A nutritionist is someone who studies the science of how food can improve our overall health. Nutritionists help individuals who want to eat a cleaner diet or need to change their diet due to a medical issue.
Here are some tips to consider before making an appointment with a nutritionist. When visiting a nutritionist it is best to send them medical information, such as blood work and blood pressure, in advance. This allows nutritionists to recommend proper dietary guidance according to a client's current vitals. During the first meeting clients should expect to have a conversation about their health and lifestyle. The more information someone is able to share, the better guidance a nutritionist can give. With a clear understanding of where someone is and where they want to be, a nutritionist will provide a formal eating plan or a list of recommended food items. From this point moving forward nutritionists will help clients say on track of their dietary plan and answer questions throughout the process.
Changing one's diet can be incredibly difficult. It is important to find a nutritionist that you can trust and is willing to help throughout your journey. It is ok to “interview” multiple nutritionists before finding the perfect match.
