Let’s face it, with so many new diets and trends in nutrition these days, weight loss seems near to impossible. What may work for one person may not work for another. What may seem to work for a few weeks may result in a major plateau. Our bodies are well oiled machines, and they are constantly evolving and changing. No matter how well educated you may be, losing weight on your own can be extremely hard. You hit plateau’s, become constipated, and cheat days may turn into cheat weeks (we’ve all been there). How do you know you’re losing fat and not muscle? How do you get back on track from a bad week? How do you break your plateau? These are all very common and frustrating problems that can happen during someone’s weight loss journey. However, there is one thing that is truly the key to success when it comes to losing weight and maintaining it. The secret is simple; accountability! Having a nutritional counselor is the number way to keep you on track, and to learn throughout the process!
According to Optima Health Solutions Inc, Amy Lister states, “Americans receive mixed messages on healthy foods and fad diets in the media, which can make it difficult to select healthy foods even when they want to. Making healthy food choices to prevent health conditions is challenging enough. What if you already have high blood pressure or cholesterol or are overweight? Perhaps all the above apply to you. This is when it can become overwhelming at the grocery store. Should I focus on sodium or calories? What about carbohydrates? It is easy to become frustrated and give up all together.” It is so easy to want to give up or easily lose motivation if you don’t see results as fast as you would like. That is exactly why having someone to meet with on a weekly basis may be your saving grace. A nutritional counselor is there to go over the small details, figure out what is going wrong, and what proper changes to make to help you continuously see success.
