My First Nutrition Counseling Session with a Dietitian

My First Nutrition Counseling Session with a Dietitian

Jan 16, 2019

Weight-loss counseling can be frustrating for both dietitians and us. Whether the focus is to lose weight, treat an eating disorder or improve a chronic medical condition, nutritional counseling offers an ongoing process to help enhance an individual’s health and wellness. Often administered by a registered dietitian, nutritional counseling usually involves an assessment, diagnosis, intervention, maintenance period and evaluation. While counselors have their individual styles, successful outcomes involve engaged and involving clients. I have been meaning to go to a counselor since months, so had a chance to visit one recently. I have been going to a med spa near me for best nutrition counseling.

While at med spa in Houston I discovered few interesting things for a healthy body and mind:

  • Meals and snacks can be planned to decrease stress
  • They teach us how our body works and increase our knowledge of metabolism
  • They help us understand eating disorder thoughts and behaviors
  • I got to know about food and feelings and how to understand emotional eating
  • Eat small but regular meals in every 2-4 hour
  • Always have snack or meal 3 hours prior to bed time
  • Always eat small portions
  • Reduce the intake of sugar

Benefits of Nutrition Therapy

Food dietitians at med spa in Houston, TX specialize in food-positive, body-positive nutrition counseling. They help you in:

  • Regaining power over your food choices to reduce overeating, binge eating, and emotional eating
  • Managing chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease
  • Finding relief from anxious thoughts about food and your body
  • Rediscovering your natural hunger and satiety cues
  • Alleviating IBS symptoms through nutrition therapy
  • Cultivating self-acceptance & self-compassion

There is an initial assessment session, where one of the dietitians will learn about you as a person and about your nutrition goals and expectations. Everything related to nutrition, including your overall medical history, favorite foods, typical meals and snacks, cooking abilities, grocery shopping, exercise habits, plus your thoughts and feelings about your current food choices and lifestyle habits is discussed. If requested, they provide you with educational handouts, resources to help learn more about various topics.
