Top concerns to discuss with your dietician

Are you looking for the perfect diet plan to lose some weight? There are several diet plans available for free of cost on the internet. People start trying them and they may see short terms results as well. However once they stop the diet their body switches back to its original form. What people should consider is they should not self prescribe diets. Consult a good dietician if you would like to start a diet. A dietician will prescribe a plan that is consistent and will show lasting results. They never suggest crash and yo-yo diet for you. Also these diets will be planned in such a way that your body gets its nutrition and you lose weight as well. Diets given by professional dieticians will also suggest a moderate level of exercise.

When you are contemplating to starts a diet you may have some concerns. Here are some questions you should ask your dietician

  • You should first of all understand your diet completely. After you have discussed your needs with the dietician you should ask them how much time will it take for the diet to take effect. Some diets last for as much as 6 months to one year to show you results. Ask your dietician how long you are expected to continue with the diet.
  • It is not possible for any person to follow the diet to the T every single day of their life. Take alternatives from your dietician on the days you are not able to follow the plan. Take plenty of options as to what you can eat and what you should strictly avoid.
  • Ask in detail as to what happens when you stop the diet. Nobody can live on a fixed diet for a lifetime. Take tips on how to maintain your weight consistently even after you stop following the diet. Also take tips on how to switch back to the diet in case you do put on some weight.
  • Make sure that your dietician prescribes a good balanced diet that has vitamins, minerals, proteins and carbohydrates. A high protein diet can cause long term damage to your kidney and may not suit everybody.
  • Understand the diet perfectly and ask questions about the ingredients of the diet if you have any. The diet should be flexible enough to allow you the freedom of eating according to your taste.
  • Ask about the suitability of the diet and what you should do if the diet doesn’t agree with your body. Be clear on your terms right from day one. Work out a possibility of changing the diet in the event this happens.

Diets are not the only way a person can lose weight. Exercises like weight training also help people lose weight. However a healthy diet plays a role in supplying essential nutrients while we are losing weight. For some people with certain conditions diets are important and have to be followed every day. So it depends on the purpose of the diet
