If you are looking for nutritional counseling, we offer it here at Enhanced Living Chiropractic as a part of a holistic treatment plan. Nutritional counselors can help you set goals for your health that you can reach and teach different ways to maintain these goals throughout your lifetime. Weight loss is one of the biggest reasons why people seek the help of a nutritional counselor. We have offices in both Inman and Greer.
Benefits of Nutrition Counseling
Nutrition counseling treats different conditions and provides different ways to promote a much healthier lifestyle using adequate nutrition. People of many different ages and backgrounds can take advantage of this type of counseling. A nutritional supplement can be taken but you should keep in mind that your diet and what you eat matter the most.
It can greatly benefit people with the following conditions:
- Eating disorders
- High cholesterol
- Abnormal blood sugar levels
- Metabolic disorders
It is also possible to combine nutritional counseling and chiropractic care for those who may need some rehabilitation for an already existing injury they have. Speedy recovery can help with a proper diet plan and therapy combined.
Nutritional Counseling & Weight Loss
If you are overweight, you may benefit from nutritional counseling. Your counselor will examine your eating habits closely and determine what changes you need to make. They will also track your progress upon each visit and help you set goals to lose weight. If you are overweight and enrolled in nutritional counseling, you should aim to lose anywhere between 1 to 1.5 pounds each week.
Many people that feel they need to lose weight just do not know where to start. Avoiding certain foods is imperative. There may be others that are already eating the right foods but maybe their portion sizes are a bit off. Nutritional counseling can help make lasting changes. Weighing too much can put you at risk for other health conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
Are there any risks associated with nutritional counseling for weight loss?
There are no risks if you follow your counselor closely and take their advice. Just remember that your counselor will make sure you do not lose a lot of weight too quickly and they will monitor you. They can make sure that you lose any unwanted fat but not too much muscle mass. It may be easy to just take a nutritional supplement and call it a day but that will not help you lose weight.
