    Why You Should Use a Nutritionist

    Many people think Nutritionists are a waste of time, and having experienced some I might agree with them. However, ask yourself this, do you feel good. What do I mean by feeling good?

    • Do you go through the day without highs, lows, reaching for a cup of coffee, 5 hour energy, or pick your particular poison to get your system up and running.
    • Do you fall asleep easily? No help from either medication, supplements or my favorite wine/alcohol?
    • Do you got through the day with lots of energy and no issues with your joints?
    • Do you you wake up refreshed and ready to start the day?

    If you answered yes to all of the above  questions, congratulations! You are in the small percentage of people who are doing things right for your body, you do not need to read anymore. For you others –

    What does a Nutritionist do exactly? They help with all of the above. You say; I can get that out of a book,  my trainer tells me what to eat, or some expert on TV has all the answers on the latest greatest diet. My answer to that is does that particular person/knowledge base, know your biochemical make up? Have they taken down what you are eating right now, how it is affecting you; your health history? If not, then how do you know this is the right food intake for you?

    The most wondrous things Nutritionists (at least the good ones) do is find good food choices for you that you can actually tolerate eating. I am a very picky eater, have been since the day I was born. I think salad is horrible, I do eat it because my digestive system absolutely cannot function without it. I think there are two fruits, cantaloupe and bananas, and veggies should be considered a side condiment. So every time I tried a diet, it never lasted, my stomach hated it, and I could feel sick. Who in their right mind would stick to something that makes them feel tired and sick, no one! Me least of all. Yet, I have a condition that gets very irritated when I eat what I really love, Jerry’s Chicken Philly, Cheeseburgers, and french fries, onion rings. Needless to say not great things to eat if you intestines do not operate correctly.

    After searching high and low, I found a Nutritionist on recommendation from one of my clients, and to my astonishment she came up with not only a diet I could live with, I actually got off some of my medication, lost weight, and felt better. Yes, the cost for a really good one can be prohibitive, however, how much have you spent on supplements, visits to the doctor, medications, etc. Food is medicine, we have to start to look at it in that vein, we are what we eat, no two ways about it. Eating right can help stave off a lot of uncomfortable aging issues like Alzheimer’s, Macular Degeneration, general inflammation, and Osteoporosis. Its all about feeling good and happy endings.
