The first tip for making the most of your dietitian visit is overcoming the fear that you are visiting the food police. A dietitian works with you to identify food choices that are compatible with your lifestyle. Not everyone wants to give up their favourite fuels and a dietitian can offer tips on smarter choices, ordering at restaurants, high and low glycemic-index foods, eating for energy, performance or simply to avoid that post-prandial crash an hour after lunch. Most importantly, a dietitian is your coach helping you set, measure and achieve your own goals.
Goals are not always related to weight-loss. Often dietitians focus on disease prevention, managing a chronic condition or eating to avoid cancer. A dietitian can provide guidance on supplementation or foods to avoid if cardiac issues, digestive problems or food sensitivities or allergies run in your family. It’s time to shatter the dietitian stereotypes and let them provide you with simple tools, tips and ideas to help you realize your goals.
As a LifePlus client, you have full access to your dietitian throughout the year, so please don’t hesitate to call your Clinical Care Coordinator to book an appointment with your friendly Copeman Healthcare Registered Dietitian.
