What is nutrition?

Nutrition is the study of the biochemical and physiological processes that take place when food is eaten. This study is carried out by a nutritionist. They look at how the body utilises the nutrients found in various foods. Aside from this, they study the impact nutrition has on health. After all, diet, health, and disease are all interconnected. Essential nutrients are necessary to promote health, provide energy and maintain a healthy weight. Understanding this well can help you lead a well-balanced life. As they say, a healthy gut brings out the healthy you. 

What can a nutritionist do to help you?

A nutritionist can provide a range of information and guidance about the food and drink you take. They give advice on how to grow food (if that is your inclination), what you should eat, and, perhaps most importantly, how to change dietary behaviours. Their main role is to use nutrition and food knowledge to promote healthy communities. Even someone who is relatively healthy can benefit from consulting a nutritionist. It is their job to stay up-to-date on nutritional information, anyway. Nutrition know-how comes in handy especially with fad diets and the latest food and drinks on the market. 

What can you expect from a consultation with a nutritionist?

Before giving you advice, the nutritionist must know about you first. They will ask you about your overall health, current diet, medication, lifestyle, and food history. It would help if, before your appointment, you make a food diary good about the past two or three days. List down everything you ate for meals and snacks. Take note of your medications. This way, the nutritionist will have a good idea of where you are, health-wise. Once your present state has been thoroughly discussed, you can talk about the changes you want to make in your life. In upcoming sessions, your nutritionist can give you suggestions regarding meal plans, recipes, and grocery lists. Additionally, they can suggest healthy places for you to dine at, or stores to shop in.
