Committing to a healthy lifestyle can be challenging, confusing, and downright frustrating. With conflicting information on the web, gossip being passed on through friends, or the latest fad diet on TV, there has become so much conflicting information it’s extremely difficult to find the right answers. This is especially true if you don’t know what you’re looking for or what’s best for you as an individual.
So where does a nutritionist fit into all of this and what is a holistic nutrition educator?
holistic Nutrition Educator
A holistic nutrition educator takes into consideration all aspects of your life in order to build long-term, optimum health. Holistic nutrition focuses on:
- Possible imbalances in your body and its relation with your lifestyle, state of mind, and diet
- Ensuring your body is receiving the specific nutrients it needs to support your optimal well-being
- Creating balance with a diet of whole foods
- Encouraging moderation
- Determining whether external factors are contributing to your decreased quality of life
Support to get you where you want to be
Determining your goal is one thing. Making the right choices based on your personal imbalances, preferences, and needs of your body is another. With the support of a nutritionist, you’ll have someone with you that believes in you, encourages you to do your best, and offers you suggestions to maximize your health.
Understanding your concerns, frustrations and challenges allows your nutritionist to guide you on a path towards your goals while educating you on the benefits of balance, moderation, and whole foods living.
Are personalized plans necessary?
The saying “one man’s food is another’s poison” is very accurate in the world of holistic nutrition. The one size fits all approach to “dieting” is exactly what we want to avoid when we’re looking to improve our personal well-being. Just as all people look different on the outside, all of us work differently on the inside.
A personalized plan supports your individual strengths and weaknesses, taking into consideration your personal preferences, and focuses on specific foods and nutrients needed to address your imbalances.
Whole foods living
It’s been proven that processed foods lack the nutrients needed to properly support all of our body’s processes. Adapting a whole foods diet specifically tailored to your personal requirements will ensure that these nutrients are supplied and your body is given the chance to begin functioning the way it was intended.
