Nutrition Counseling

Develop Better Eating Habits

Food is the source of your body’s energy and wellness. Maintaining a well-balanced diet is vital for your long-term health, as well as enjoying your day-to-day life. However, while everyone’s nutritional needs are different, nutrition counseling is often helpful for individuals dealing with mental or physical roadblocks in healthy eating. For instance, people who have chronic diseases that affect their digestive system may have trouble maintaining a healthy diet or weight.

When you find yourself struggling to eat healthily or feel that receiving expert advice could improve your diet, consider nutrition counseling at Counseling Works.

What is Nutrition Counseling?

Nutrition counseling, sometimes called dietary counseling, is a form of therapy that helps an individual develop and maintain healthy eating habits. The method to achieve this depends on your goals. In general, the goal of nutrition counseling is to increase one’s health and wellbeing, which usually involves making adjustments to your diet. For instance, you might seek nutrition counseling if you want to lose weight or manage a chronic disease. A dietician will work with you to create a plan to improve your diet, help you reach your goals, and boost the quality of your life.

How Can a Dietitian Help Me?

Often, clients will work with a counselor on developing self-regulating behaviors and a healthier mindset about food. Here’s what to expect from nutrition counseling:

  • Keeping track of your food intake, which may include the types of food, calories, and other relevant information
  • Changing eating behaviors and confronting your food choices
  • Building healthy eating habits
  • Understanding how your diet impacts your health and the ways you can improve
  • Identifying triggers that cause you to fall back into unhealthy eating habits

Do I Need Nutrition Counseling?

There are many reasons an individual might seek nutrition counseling. No two cases are the same. However, while needs vary among people, nutrition counseling is often beneficial for those who face mental or physical roadblocks in healthy eating. Those who have been diagnosed with certain chronic diseases may also find themselves struggling to maintain a healthy diet or weight. Some conditions that impact diet and nutrition include:

  • Diabetes
  • Digestive disorders like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Eating disorders
  • Food allergies or intolerances

How Does Nutrition Counseling Help?

Any condition that limits your diet or complicates eating in some way is enough reason to receive nutrition counseling. We encourage you to reach out to our dietician to see how nutrition counseling can improve your well-being.

Nutrition counseling is also beneficial for those looking to manage their weight. The weight loss journey is often a long one – there’s nothing wrong with receiving help. A dietician will help you manage your caloric intake, so you safely lose weight.
