Nutrition counseling has been established to help all who need or want to change their eating habits.
It is not only about weight loss, it’s a healthy lifestyle.
"LET FOOD BE THY MEDICINE AND MEDICINE BE THY FOOD"
Most of us know what to do to lose extra weight: basically, we have to avoid sweets, salty snacks, we should work out at a gym, swim, run, etc., but how to make someone apply the theory in the real life?
Psychodietetics provides the answer as it is a science that focuses on the great role of psychological factors in the process of nutritional habits change, weight loss, and maintaining a healthy body weight.
Psychodietetics is a science that combines medical knowledge on healthy dietary habits with psychological awareness. This holistic approach to the problem of healthy behaviour patterns helps change people’s lifestyles - improve their health and state of being - more effectively.
A dietitian's role in losing weight is very important because sharing knowledge on nutrition allows for understanding the principles of a healthy diet. Yet, it turns out that having this knowledge, on many occasions, does not translate into a lasting weight loss. Changing ourselves, our habits and preferences, is one of the toughest challenges we can present ourselves with when making a decision about going on a diet to lose weight; hence, it is hard to stick to the diet. For instance, motivation drops when weight loss is not visible. In this case, a psychodietitian helps us find the cause of failure.
They make it easier to understand the role of food for each of us (we are different and so food means different things for each individual). A psychodietitian supports us in steadfastness and implementation of healthy dietary patterns in our lives since every change, before transforming into a habit, requires numerous repetitions.
