There is so much misinformation about food today and what we should or should not eat. There is a lot of confusion today about what constitutes a healthy diet. Many people believe that they need a restrictive diet in order to be healthy. For example, many people choose “fat free” foods with the misconception that they are eating healthily, when in fact such foods can often be loaded with sugars.
We need to embrace food once again as one of the pleasures in our lives instead of feeling guilty or confused every time we eat something.
Our aim at about nutrition is to inform people about what foods their bodies actually need, and the importance of eating a wide variety and balanced range of food. Real food nourishes not only the body but also our emotional selves.
How do we work?
At your first appointment, your goals will be discussed and reviewed in relation to your health and lifestyle and your current eating pattern will be discussed.
If there are any tests required, referrals will be issued and you will normally be requested to keep a detailed eating plan until your next visit. Individual advice and eating plans tailored to your needs will be issued at your next consultation, in line with your goals whether they include improved health and/or weight management as well as promoting a sense of wellbeing.
We help clients adjust their eating patterns and teach you ways to make nutritious meals quickly and easily, whether catering for one person, busy couples or families. Advice on making wise choices when dining out is also offered – vital for those with busy lives.
We will also give you handy tips and strategies to help keep you focused on achieving your goals and controlling temptations, particularly when managing weight.
