So, it seems that nearly everyone is following their own brand of diet these days?
Perhaps you have chosen a diet regimen to follow. Let’s see. Perhaps “The Paleo,” “The Mediterranean,” “The HCG,” or one of “The Blood Group Diets.” And so the list goes on. “Vegan,” ‘Vegetarian,” “Carb Free.”
You have chosen your style of diet and you feel great as a result. And how did you make the choice? Was it based on:
3.Your food likes
4.A celebrity or a friends enthusiasm for the diet
5.Dr Google or Mr Internet
6.A condition you may have
There is so much good information on the internet these days. You most likely researched the diet. How easy it is to follow, the nutrition and what it is supposed to do for you.
One of the best things about choosing a diet today is that you can easily find recipe apps which make following the diet really easy.
So why you may wonder would you still consider seeing someone qualified in Nutrition.
Dietary advice can enhance all the benefits of your chosen diet. Within your chosen diet you still need to obtain all your nutrients and a qualified nutritionist knows all the individual nutrients found in foods, how to best store and cook them for maximum benefit.
Dr. Andrew Arnold adds, ‘Some foods and their styles of preparation are not good for particular conditions, even despite being exceptionally great choices for 90% of the population.’
A case or two in point are:
1.Brassicas for Hypothyroid conditions.
2.Types of fats to eat for Cardiovascular conditions
3.How to store nuts
