Do you struggle with losing weight?  Have you tried multiple diets or exercise programs, only to either fail or to see the weight come back shortly after?  Are you starting to consider more extreme weight-loss methods, such as surgical procedures? If so, there are still alternatives for natural non-surgical weight loss!  You might simply need more hands-on attention from nutrition counseling specialists.

Nutrition Counseling Customizes Your Weight-Loss Experience

One of the biggest problems with so many diets and other weight-loss schemes is that they act as though all people are the same.  But they aren’t.  Everyone has different genetics, a different medical history, different lives, and lifestyles…  all these things affect how your body processes food and, therefore, they affect how you lose weight as well.

A book or website can’t tell you how to tailor a diet to your body’s specific needs. Only expert nutritionists can do that – which is what nutrition counseling is all about.

Receiving nutrition counseling means you’ll be getting fully personalized one-on-one sessions with a professional nutritionist.  They’ll discuss your lifestyle and your eating habits, while also going over your medical history to look for biological factors that could affect your weight loss journey.

Then they’ll make recommendations not just about what you eat, but how you eat it, and how you live your life, so that your weight loss will become permanent.

The Process of Nutrition Counseling

Generally speaking, each session with a nutrition counselor lasts around an hour.  The first initial consultation will mostly be about establishing your medical history and your day-to-day lifestyle.  These questions might occasionally feel a little invasive, but they are important!  The more your counselor knows about your life, the easier it is for them to make useful suggestions for how to improve your weight-loss strategies.

Then, there will be a series of follow-up sessions – usually a week or two apart – where you talk about how things went.  It’s important that the counselor hears everything, both the successes and failures.  Then they can make new suggestions, and help you find ways to overcome whichever factors may have gotten in your way.

So, over the course of a few sessions, you should develop new approaches to eating and living, which will help you lose the weight and keep it off!
