Weight Management

Weight management can be an arduous journey. Many individuals struggle with yo-yo dieting - losing weight just to gain it back again - which can leave many feeling discouraged and defeated. That's where I come in - to help you.

As a registered dietitian, I specialize in helping individuals overcome yo-yo dieting and achieve sustainable weight loss. My approach focuses on making lifestyle changes that support your health and wellness goals while providing the tools and guidance to lose and maintain weight for life.

As part of my effort to help you overcome yo-yo dieting, I develop eating plans tailored for weight loss specific to you and your unique needs and preferences - such as restrictions, food allergies, or health conditions. The goal of developing such an eating plan is to guide you to make more nutritious food choices and enjoy a diet that supports weight loss goals more successfully.

I understand that weight loss involves what and how we eat, so I will guide you on mindful eating techniques, including paying attention to hunger and fullness signals from your body and eating while relaxed and without judgment. With my help, you can learn intuitive eating techniques for a healthier relationship with food.

Additionally, I offer support and accountability to help keep you on the path toward weight loss. Working together, we can set achievable goals, track your progress, and adjust your plan as necessary. By offering encouragement, advice, and practical strategies for success on this journey, I can help you overcome any hurdles on your weight loss journey.

One way I help clients overcome yo-yo dieting is through sustainable lifestyle changes. Crash diets and extreme exercise routines aren't sustainable in the long run and can cause feelings of deprivation and burnout; by making gradual and sustainable adjustments to your diet and fitness routine, your chances of maintaining a healthy weight for life increase significantly.

Overall, my goal is to assist in your journey toward sustainable weight loss and improve overall health and happiness. With my assistance, you can gain the tools, guidance, and support to overcome yo-yo dieting and reach your weight loss goals - as well as learn to implement lifestyle changes that support optimal health and well-being.

Frequently Asked Questions

The number of calories you should consume per day to lose weight depends on several factors, such as your current weight, height, age, gender, activity level, and weight loss goals. In general, you need to create a calorie deficit to lose weight, which means consuming fewer calories than you burn.

A safe and sustainable rate of weight loss is generally considered to be 0.5 to 2 pounds per week. To achieve this rate of weight loss, you would need to create a calorie deficit of 250 to 500 calories per day.

To determine your daily calorie needs for weight loss, consult a dietitian. We can help you develop a personalized plan that takes into account your unique needs and goals while ensuring you are meeting your nutrient needs. It's important to note that drastic calorie restriction or fad diets can be harmful to your health and may lead to nutrient deficiencies, so it's important to approach weight loss in a safe and sustainable way.

Research has shown that both low-carb and low-fat diets may result in weight loss.

Low-carb diets typically limit carbohydrate intake to 20-100 grams per day, and focus on consuming more protein, healthy fats, and non-starchy vegetables. This type of diet may help promote weight loss, help reduce insulin levels and promote feelings of fullness, leading to a reduced calorie intake. However, low-carb diets may not be appropriate for everyone, especially those with certain medical conditions such as diabetes or kidney disease.

Low-fat diets typically limit fat intake to 20-35% of daily calories, while increasing intake of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins. This type of diet may help reduce overall calorie intake and promote weight loss, but may not be as effective for promoting satiety as a low-carb diet.

Although there have been some studies that support that these types of diet may result in some weight loss, they are typically hard to sustain long-term. Ultimately, the most effective diet or eating pattern for weight loss is one that you can stick to long-term, as sustainable lifestyle changes are key to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.

Yes, you can absolutely still eat your favourite foods and lose weight. Completely cutting out your favourite foods can make it more difficult to stick to a healthy eating plan long-term, as it can feel restrictive and unsustainable.

The key to incorporating your favourite foods into a weight loss plan is to practice moderation and balance. Instead of completely eliminating your favourite foods, consider enjoying them in smaller portions or less frequently.

No, skipping meals is not an effective or healthy strategy for weight loss. While it may seem like a simple way to reduce calorie intake, skipping meals can actually backfire and lead to overeating or bingeing later in the day. It can also lead to nutrient deficiencies and negatively impact your metabolism.

Skipping meals can also have negative effects on your mood, energy levels, and overall health. Your body needs a steady supply of nutrients and energy throughout the day to function properly, and skipping meals can disrupt this balance.

Instead of skipping meals, focus on creating a balanced and sustainable eating plan that includes a variety of nutrient-dense foods. This can help keep you feeling full and satisfied throughout the day, reducing the likelihood of overeating. Aim to eat regular, balanced meals and snacks throughout the day to keep your energy levels stable and avoid feelings of hunger.
