We should all aim to eat a healthy and varied diet to maintain general health and wellbeing. The Eatwell Guide gives clear guidance on the recommended daily allowances for men and women. Although a useful resource, when combined with exercise, you may find that a healthy diet alone cannot provide you with the nutrition you require to support the level of physical activity undertaken. If this is the case, it might be that an appointment with a nutrition expert is right for you.
Although the internet can be immensely beneficial in terms of getting information regarding when to eat, what to eat and how much, every person is unique and what works well for someone else – even if they seem to have the exact same body type and exercise routine as you – may not be the right choice. A personal nutritionist can help with this.
If you see a qualified nutritionist, you will find that you receive an approach tailored to your individual needs and requirements. It’s understood that everyone has a different lifestyle and whilst cooking a nutritious meal from scratch every night of the week might work for some people, it isn’t going to be the solution for everyone.
Studies have shown that more than 50% of people who lose weight on a diet regain it within two years. This can be due to any number of factors, including those outside our control, for example genetics. However, usually, contributing factors are related to our individual lifestyles – things such as eating pattern, work-life balance, and socialisation. A personal nutritionist can take these aspects of your life into account when assessing your nutrition plan and how achievable it will be for you to stick to.
If the diet in question, whether the goal is weight loss or a more specific plan to support training, cannot be adhered to because of your lifestyle, then it won’t work. It’s that simple. A nutritionist, Swansea, will give you practical solutions and reframe the way you look at food and diet in a way that works for you, as an individual not a statistic.
There are numerous other ways in which tailored advice can give you a significant advantage when it comes to planning your diet to achieve your goals. We all know we need to consider what we eat, but there is also the question of when we eat. This varies, not only for your own body type and metabolism, but also with regard to the type of workout you are going to be doing and what you want to achieve from it. If you are looking to gain muscle mass, then eating lean beef, chicken, whey, and eggs will help. But how do you navigate this if you are a vegetarian, or are required to wine and dine clients for work? Your nutritionist will be able to advise you throughout your dietary journey.
A diet that supports and works in combination with an active lifestyle can prevent injury and assist you in excelling at your chosen activity. Your body is your tool in achieving – make sure you are refuelling in the best possible way.
