We live in a world where we have access to an increased amount of nutritional advice from a variety of sources including the internet, social networking and so on.

Daily we are affected or influenced by others on our health status and what the next best diet is to follow.

How do we know if the information we are receiving is accurate and correct and how will that information have a behaviour change towards better living in our lives. That is why, by seeing a dietician you can make more informed choices regarding a behavior change to better living. A dietician helps to ensure a patients diet becomes and stays on track while the patient is adjusting to their new dietary or healthier lifestyle. With a dieticians motivation, support and coping mechanisms you will be able to comply with new life style changes and eating plans.

Any of the following symptoms might mean that a person needs a change in eating habits:

  • Weight gain/loss
  • Feeling bloated
  • Fatigued
  • Gastrointestinal pain or cramps
  • Food cravings
  • Headaches
  • Not sleeping well
  • Heart burn

A behaviour change to healthier living can happen at any time and any place.

Remember “WE ARE WHAT WE EAT”.
