What do Nutritionists do?
Nutritionists help their clients stay focused on their goals by providing regular encouragement and motivation. They discuss the pros and cons of specific diets and food trends, and what impact those have on health. Depending on education level or licensure, a nutritionist may test for specific food allergies or autoimmune disorders such as celiac disease (gluten intolerance).
Why is Nutrition important?
Educating people on health is an important job in today’s society where obesity has reached an all-time high. Nutritionists can work as self-employed entrepreneurs, as well as in hospital settings, schools and a variety of holistic and alternative medicine environments. Depending on their level of education, nutritionists can be in high demand in food and health-related businesses.
How fast will I loose weight?
We understand it’s very tempting to ask this question. Everyone is individual and will lose weight differently. We aim for approximately 1kg per fortnight (24kgs per year). Studies show that any faster than this and it is easy to regain. Rather than looking at the speed of weight loss, we encourage you to consider that every kg you lose is lost forever.
