How important is nutrition in weight loss or management?

The food you take in every day has a direct effect on how your body functions. In fact, few things are more important than daily nutrition. Your choices can make a difference in both positive and negative ways.

Your body converts food into energy and processes all of the micronutrients your cells and tissues need to thrive. When you don’t consume enough nutrient-dense foods, your body suffers. You may be able to get through your days, but your organs and systems cannot function at peak levels, and those deficits really add up over time.  

What is nutritional counseling?

Nutritional counseling goes beyond simply providing a list of healthy food choices. It focuses on how you currently fuel your body and explores how to make meaningful changes that deliver results. 

Anyone can follow a strict diet for a few weeks, but the changes that make the biggest impact are those that are sustainable over the long term. You’ll work with your practitioner to identify areas of your nutrition where improvements can be made and learn how to adjust your diet in ways that you can continue for a lifetime. 

In most cases, one of the most important changes a person can make is avoiding highly processed foods. This includes fast food as well as many packaged food products. Learning how to prepare meals at home is a powerful way to boost nutrition and save money. 

How long does it take to see results after nutritional counseling?

Everyone’s body is different, and your weight loss goals are unique. That said, it doesn’t take long to see results when you try to improve your nutrition. 

Replacing sugary beverages with water, saying “no” to highly processed foods, and incorporating more fruit, vegetables, healthy fats, and lean proteins into your diet will create almost immediate improvements. 

Over time you can expect to lose excess pounds and improve your sleep quality, energy levels, and even cognitive function. Most importantly, better nutrition decreases your risk of chronic health conditions, which can shorten your lifespan.
