We all know how food affects our overall health and well being in the long run. And as much as we love our wine here at Portland Wine Group, it is important that you have an idea of the right foods to eat so you don’t put on the extra pounds! Unfortunately eating one healthy apple with every glass of wine won’t keep you in good shape… if only it were that easy!
With so many professionals functioning in this space however, how will you pick the right one? This post offers information on what you need to consider before picking the best nutritionist. And the good news is, you don’t have to totally give up your love of wine.
There are many reasons why someone may want to use a nutritionist. Some want to lose weight fast while other may have goals such as gaining muscle, reducing cholesterol, managing type-2 diabetes, and improve his/her performance in a particular sport. Hence, you need to first identify your goals before shopping for a professional nutritionist on the market. This will help you pick the right type of coach to help you achieve your specific goals.
Once you have identified your goals, it is easy to check for the credentials and experience of the most appropriate nutritionist that will help you achieve your goals over time. Most nutritionists refer to themselves as either a dietitian or a nutritionist. Since nutritional practice is not regulated in the country, there is no legal protection over such terms. Each country has it’s own regulations.
The coaching style of the professional is also extremely important in this regard. Nutritionists may use a variety of coaching styles. The coaching style of the professional should be evaluated by the client before he/she decides to hire the professional. Their style should be compatible with your learning style for quick results over time. The coaching skills are also important to consider before picking the right professional for the job. A good nutritionist is a good counselor in another way. In fact, food is always going to be a tricky subject which is quite personal to each client. The nutritionist should have counseling skills which will be very helpful in this regard.
The professional should be able to build a good rapport with their clients. This is another important thing to consider when finding the best nutritionist. It is all about finding the right coach that you can work on a long-term basis without any problems. The reputation of the coach also plays a big part in this regard. The professional should come highly recommended by a majority of his/her past clients. This is the best way to find a professional dietitian.
