Nutrition & Dietary Planning
In most cases, clients need help identifying how their dietary intake is contributing to the state of their health, and for alot of people, once the diet is corrected, their state of health improves dramatically. One such area is in weight management. To achieve long lasting weight loss, the diet needs to be addressed and permanently changed, after all if you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got.
I don't believe that there is one perfect diet for everyone. We all have different health challenges and health related goals and research points to different diets for different health conditions. For example, for wellness and general health, research shows that a diet high in plant matter is best. This would also be the case for gut health. Plant based fibre feeds good bacteria in the gut, which promotes overall health. In these cases, I would recommend that my client follows a Mediterranean diet.
In the case of Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Inflammatory Bowel Disease, the diet which gets the best clinical outcome would be a low FODMAPS diet, which will help identify food triggers for the IBS.
If weight loss is your goal, a low carbohydrate, moderate protein, moderate healthy fat diet is the best approach. I have a facebook group where I support clients on their weight loss journey. Please feel free to join to check me out and decide whether it is for you! Here is a link to my group:
For someone experiencing hay fever or allergic rhinitis and for certain mental health or skin related complaints, a low histamine diet would be prescribed.
As you can see, I offer individualised dietary planning for your particular concerns. Other diets which may be indicated include Paleo, Dairy free, Vegan or Gluten free.
