One of the most common questions that people ask a dietitian is "what is the difference between a dietitian and a nutritionist?" Admittedly it is confusing – if anything the term nutritionist sounds far more user friendly compared to the term ‘dietitian’ which tends to conjure up images of a practitioner in a white coat dictating what you should and should not be eating. This is as opposed to nutritionist in which case we tend to imagine holistic health imagery filled with fresh fruit, vegetables and well-being.
Everybody would like a quick fix with weight loss which is why fad diets are big business, but the truth is it takes a lifetime to build up eating habits and it takes time and effort to break them down again.
It’s important to understand how the body uses food but also how we in our culture use food; for pleasure, socialising, celebrating, entertaining and all sorts of other reasons. Having a professional that you can speak to, discuss where things are going well and where the challenges lie for you personally, is worth a hundred contradictory diet books.
Fact: Fad diets are not the best way to lose weight and keep it off. These diets often promise quick weight loss if you strictly reduce what you eat or avoid some types of foods. Some of these diets may help you lose weight at first. But these diets are hard to follow. Most people quickly get tired of them and regain any lost weight.
TIP: Research suggests that safe weight loss involves combining a reduced-calorie diet with physical activity to lose 1/2 to 2 pounds a week (after the first few weeks of weight loss). Make healthy food choices. Eat small portions. Build exercise into your daily life. Combined, these habits may be a healthy way to lose weight and keep it off. These habits may also lower your chances of developing heart disease, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes.
Fact: Grain product is any food made from wheat, rice, oats, cornmeal, barley, or another cereal grain. Grains are divided into two subgroups, whole grains and refined grains. Whole grains contain the entire grain kernel—the bran, germ, and endosperm. Examples include brown rice and whole-wheat bread, cereal, and pasta. Refined grains have been milled, a process that removes the bran and germ. This is done to give grains a finer texture and improve their shelf life, but it also removes dietary fiber, iron, and many B vitamins.
TIP: To lose weight, reduce the number of calories you take in and increase the amount of physical activity you do each day. Create and follow a healthy eating plan that replaces less healthy options with a mix of fruits, veggies, whole grains, protein foods, and low-fat dairy.
Fact: To lose weight, you need to burn more calories than you eat and drink. Some people may seem to get away with eating any kind of food they want and still lose weight. But those people, like everyone, must use more energy than they take in through food and drink to lose weight.
A number of factors such as your age, genes, medicines, and lifestyle habits may affect your weight. If you would like to lose weight, speak with your health care provider about factors that may affect your weight. Together, you may be able to create a plan to help you reach your weight and health goals.
Just to give you a bit of overview, our weight loss program purely works on the basis of balanced healthy food and nutrition. We don’t count calories but modify diet & lifestyle by setting health goals which is achievable, measurable and realistic. We believe in creating a healthy lifestyle rather than promoting quick weight loss/gain diets, pills or use of supplements.
Weight loss depends on your body type, metabolic rate, medical condition, physical activity and your commitment to follow. It’s more than just monitoring your weight on the weighing scale. However just for the sake of giving you an idea in numbers, you can expect to lose between 2-4 kgs of your weight 2-3 inch loss per month.
Also, with diet your body looses fat proportionately & it’s an overall reduction. This means that one cannot target a certain part of the body and lose fat there only.
All diet plans are personalized and customized as per individual eating habits, medical history, body analysis and lifestyle.
