You most likely know that in order to “be healthy” you’ve got to “eat healthy.” But what does that mean exactly? Everyone has different nutritional needs and everyone also has their own idea of what “healthy eating” looks like. To some, that’s eating no meat, to others it’s eating mostly meat. To some it’s eating a lot of fruits and veggies, to others it’s eating diet bars and diet shakes!
How do you know what you really should be eating for your health and to prevent disease? Well, you have a couple of options:
1) Spend a lot of time researching the internet and Youtube videos hoping you find valid and effective information.
2) Work with a licensed nutritionist who can develop meal plans tailored to your specific health needs and goals.
I don’t know about you, but that second option seems to be the right choice to me.
Still not convinced? Here are just a handful of reasons to start working with a nutritionist in 2021:
Break Through Barriers
When you are so close to your own behaviors, it’s hard for you to see what is standing in your way of reaching a weight loss goal. A nutritionist can monitor and offer a different perspective and point out what’s working and what’s not. Nutritionists work with all kinds of people and have seen all kinds of scenarios, challenges, and setbacks and can help you troubleshoot whatever may be going on.
It’s easy to set some kind of health goal by yourself because then there is no one there to hold you accountable when you don’t stick with the program. When you work with a nutritionist, yes, you have someone in your corner, cheering you on to reach your goals. But you also have an accountability partner.
You Have a Mentor on Call
How many times have you hit up Google for an answer to a health or nutrition question, only to scroll through countless websites trying to determine what the right answer is? Having a nutritionist in your corner means you can contact them with any food/health questions you may have and get a reliable answer.
These are just a handful of the reasons it makes sense for, well… pretty much everyone to work with a nutritionist this year. Get in shape, get healthy and get your best life with a qualified cheerleader in your corner.
