Why You Need a Nutritionist in Your Life

Lose Weight with Nutrition CoachingOne of the greatest services that we provide for our clients here at Total Health Systems is nutrition coaching. The services that a qualified nutritionist can provide are no longer just meant for individuals who are trying to lose weight or have health concerns like high cholesterol or diabetes. Nutrition coaching is great for athletes and even those who are simply interested in being healthier and feeling great. If you’ve been thinking about taking advantage of our professional nutritionists, but still aren’t sure, here are some great reasons to give them a try!

We Are Food Experts

No, not the kind of food experts you see on shows like Iron Chef or Chopped. We are the ones that know how foods impact your body and how to get the most benefit from the food you put in your body. Most nutritionists have received a college degree and a specialized certification to be able to help you meet your fitness and nutrition needs. Whether you want to lose weight, be healthier, or meet an athletic or fitness goal, we know just what it takes to help you reach your goals.

Lose Weight Faster

It’s a good chance that if you are looking to lose weight, there is a change in diet in your future. If you are like many people, it’s easy to start a “diet” but really challenging to stick with it. A professional nutritionist knows how to make “dieting” easy. If you are ready to lose weight successfully, fad diets won’t help you out. The services a nutritionist provides will give you a balanced, nutritious meal plan that will help you successfully lose weight, while still being able to eat foods you enjoy.

Counting Calories

Do you know how many calories your body needs to consume to run a marathon successfully? Or how many calories your body needs to be healthy AND lose weight? Most of us don’t know those numbers off the top of our heads. Sure you can get on Google and guess what will work for you, but there is much more to the science of counting calories than just knowing your goal. A nutritionist will not only consider your goal, but will also look at your weight, fat composition, and current eating habits to come up with the right caloric intake that your body needs to be successful.

Wellness Eating

Did you know that most of the health issues Americans are facing can easily be resolved by a simple change in diet? Diseases like diabetes, obesity and heart disease can all be managed or even eliminated through a change in diet. A nutritionist can help you develop a healthy eating plan that will help you phase out unhealthy foods, and replace them with foods that will help you live a better, healthier life. This plan will also include fitness suggestions, supplements and possibly recommendations for other treatments such as massage or chiropractic care.

Athletic Performance

Of course, not all of our clients want to lose weight and many are already really healthy eaters. However, if you are trying to push to the next level of athletic performance, the one factor that could hold you back is your nutrition. A nutritionist is skilled in understanding the demands that athletic activity puts on your body. A properly balanced meal plan, complimented with supplements can help even the most experienced athlete get to the next level.
