If I’ve learned anything from my 13 years working as a dietitian in the NHS it is that failing to take your nutrition seriously and look after yourself can lead to serious consequences such as disability and chronic disease.
Make a change
The good news is that there are things you can do. Changing the foods you eat for certain conditions can lead to positive changes such as a reduced dependency on medications and in some cases even a reversal of symptoms. If you are someone who has a medical condition that requires you to make important changes to the way you eat or the types of foods you eat then it would be of great benefit for you to seek advice from a dietitian.
There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to nutrition. Yes we all eat food, but we eat different foods and we all come in different shapes and sizes, with different interests and goals.
What I will always do is treat everyone as an individual taking into consideration what you want to focus on and on your abilities and explore how we can TOGETHER improve your nutrition for the better.
