As you try to lose weight, you no doubt will start to restrict calories, restrict food groups, and so on, in an effort to lose weight. Later on, however, you might realize you’re not losing weight as quickly as you thought you would. Nutrition can be a tricky topic and it's good to get some guidance as you create your new eating plan. We at Druzbik Family Chiropractic in Statesville, NC, offer nutritional counseling that can help you lose weight in a healthier, more sensible way. A “chiropractor near me” is here to help.
Nutrition Is Important to Your Overall Health
Weight loss is complicated. It's not always the simple calories in, calories out that so many people grew up using. What you eat and how much you eat both play a role, and in ways you might not expect. For example, sometimes that restrictive diet you follow is too restrictive and you're not getting enough calories. That might lead your body to conserve and preserve fat and energy stores, and your metabolism drops to meet the energy intake you're getting.
Sometimes it's not the calories, but the macros. You may be eating so little protein that your body increases your appetite in hopes of making you eat foods that could contain protein. That too can derail weight loss efforts as your body tries to preserve its status quo.
How Nutritional Counseling Helps
Nutritional counseling doesn't necessarily give you a full diet plan for you to blindly follow. We are here to offer you advice given your current lifestyle and even your tastes and preferences. There is not use starting a diet that you can’t keep or one that will prevent you from working as well as you should. You may be surprised how easy or how simple it can be to change your diet for the better when you get the nutritional advice that you need.
