With so many conflicting diets making headlines every day, it can be overwhelming trying to figure out which diet is right for you.
What is the role of a nutritionist consultation in managing chronic conditions such as obesity and diabetes?
Nutritionist use evidence-based approaches to develop individualized meal plans for clients based on their needs, lifestyle, medical history, and food preferences. Nutritionists also provide counselling on topics such as weight management, digestive issues, allergies, food intolerances, chronic diseases like diabetes or hypertension, eating disorders, pregnancy or breastfeeding needs, nutrient deficiency prevention, vegetarianism or veganism, sports performance optimization, and more.
In addition to one-on-one counselling sessions with clients in person or online, nutritionists now offer services such as grocery store tours where they will guide clients through the grocery store aisle by aisle showing them how to read labels accurately and make healthier choices while shopping for food items.
Nutritionists also typically provide nutritional cooking classes either online or in person where they will demonstrate healthy recipes that incorporate fresh ingredients that are easy to prepare.
Nutritionists must also be up-to-date with current trends in dieting such as veganism, gluten-free diets or intermittent fasting so they can accurately advise patients accordingly. Furthermore, they must stay abreast of changes in food production methods which could affect the nutritional value of certain foods so they can inform patients about any potential risks associated with them.

A personalised meals plan designed according to the client needs is an important part of managing diabetes, gastrointestinal problems, autoimmune disease, improving the skin health, boosting the immune system or improving digestion and absorption or mental health wellbeing. The proposed changes are based on the individual goals, such as weight loss or controlling allergies, low histamine diet and any specific needs. Factors like lifestyle, schedule, likes/dislikes of foods and food allergies would be taken into consideration when we are planning meals.
Improved nutrients absorption, better digestion, increased energy levels, improved skin complexion and hair growth is just some of the physical benefits one may experience from following an individualised nutrition plan. Additionally, such plans can help reduce cravings for unhealthy foods and create more mindful eating habits that lead to an overall healthier behaviour.
It is best to start with small changes that are easy to sustain. Creating a meal plan tailored specifically for you can also lead to improved mental health by helping reduce feelings of stress and guilt associated with eating unhealthy food choices.
Implementing lifestyle changes that will help reach goals
Chronic stress can take a toll on our bodies in many ways from suppressing the immune system to increasing inflammation levels. For example, stress hormones spikes blood sugar levels which could worsen diabetes type 2 symptoms or make it harder to control it, hence it’s important to create healthier coping mechanisms such as reading a book or taking a walk outside instead of reaching out for sugary snacks when feeling overwhelmed or stressed out. Spending time connecting with nature has been shown to have various health benefits from boosting Vitamin D intake when exposed directly to sunlight to increasing serotonin release which helps promote positive feelings of wellbeing. Other activities such as sounds therapy, gardening, playing with your pet, having a good laugh, yoga or meditation have been proven to have beneficial effects on mental health, help reduce stress levels significantly which in turn helps to regulate hormones related to weight management as well as improving blood sugar control and mental clarity.
Ensuring regular sleep patterns can have a positive effect on the entire body from helping to control appetite and cravings to reducing depression symptoms. Getting 7-9 hours of quality sleep helps boost immunity, restores energy levels throughout the day, improves cognitive abilities and focus, as well as regulates hormones responsible for controlling hunger signals.
Daily routine of exercise
Exercises are beneficial for both physical and mental health, and should be established as a priority in order to reach the above mentioned goals. A combination of walking, brisk walking, dance, weight lifting, biking, swimming or any aerobic /anaerobic exercise can help to maintain healthy blood sugar levels, decrease stress levels, increase energy, improve digestion and absorption, strengthen the immune system, reduce allergies, and help with weight loss, through increase of muscle mass. Additionally, regular exercise can promote better sleep quality and overall mental wellbeing.

Step 6 Follow up

During the consultation, your nutritionist will review any tracking data you have (such as food logs, weight loss/gained, increase in energy level etc.) and evaluate the plan from the previous consultation. If necessary, adjustments can be made so that your plan is still on track to reach your goals. After the consult, an updated plan will be created which will include any new adjustments. Additionally, during this time there can be extra support provided either emotionally or in terms of motivation.
