You are in charge of your body and you want to provide it with the fuel to run the most efficiently. Will one diet really ever emerge that actually does work, and that actually works for everyone? If “one” diet worked, shouldn’t it have survived the test of time? It all begins with nutrition education. The Fad Free team will begin with basic nutrition education prior to helping you develop your lifestyle change. Everyone is unique and individualized.
When considering a lifestyle plan that works for you, consider:
- Does it include foods from all the major food groups (fruits, vegetables, dairy, lean protein sources, nuts, healthy fats)?
- Does it include foods you like and enjoy eating?
- Does it include foods that you can realistically prepare?
- Does it include foods that are within your budget?
- Does it provide you with enough food to fuel your day?
Food journaling is an essential and integral part of how we assess and guide progress. Several studies have shown that people who keep food journals are more likely to be successful in losing weight and keeping it off. In fact, a researcher from one recent study says that people keeping a food journal 6 days a week lost about twice as much weight as those who kept food records 1 day a week or less. Journaling helps us guide you throughout your process and helps you remember “every” morsel of food that enters your body. The Fad Free team will evaluate your food journal and provide dietitian improved tips, substitutions and comments on your daily food/drink intake.
