Three Reasons for Diet and Nutrition Counseling in Weight Loss

The mind is the hardest thing to change when it comes to weight loss. This is where diet and nutrition counseling comes in. Our Healthpointe professionals recognize its importance in safe, effective and healthy weight loss, and include it in our program as offered in our La Mirada clinic.

Keep in mind that diet and nutrition counseling assists patients in determining and achieving smart goals for health purposes.

The counseling sessions are not just designed for weight loss purposes, but for long-term health purposes. These sessions include an initial assessment of the patient’s physical condition, underlying medical issues, and health goals, among others, which will then be used in the determination of the goals and their related steps.

Here are the three reasons why diet and nutrition counseling is a must for Healthpointe patients in our clinics, such as in Los Angeles, Garden Grove and Irwindale.

  • Healthier food choices. Many people believe that being on a weight loss program means food deprivation but this is not the case. With our program, you will be educated about the wide range of delicious yet nutritious foods for your diet plan.
  • Better portioning of food. Effective weight loss is about controlled portions without food deprivation, an approach that can be challenging for people who have yet to undergo the appropriate counseling.
  • Better motivation. Counselors will provide the right motivation for clients to stick to their diet and nutrition program as well as methods for motivation.

Diet and nutrition counseling goes deeper than the usual weekly menu plans. You will be informed about the best types of foods to manage your weight as well as your moods, medical issues, and physical energy.
