Meet a Dietician!

When embarking on a weight loss journey, knowing exactly where to start can be a challenge.

There are a lot of questions to navigate!

  • Which diet is best for me?
  • What does proper nutrition look like?
  • How much weight can I lose per week?*
  • Do I need to exercise, and if so, how much?
  • How can I create a plan that works for me?

It’s okay to feel overwhelmed and unsure. Thankfully, there are professionals who can provide guidance, answer your questions and help you create a personalized weight loss plan that works best for you.

A registered dietitian is a health professional who specializes in the best ways to use nutrition, food, fitness and more to help you reach your health goals. Diet-To-Go knows how important it is to provide our customers with the service they want, which is why our in-house dietitian and nutritionist, Rebecca Mohning, is on hand to help you create a unique weight loss plan that will will work for you.

Here are eight ways you can benefit from working with a dietitian.

1) They spend time learning about you.

It’s impossible to create a proper plan without knowing who you are—your lifestyle, what makes you tick, your health goals, you name it. This is why a good dietitian takes the time to learn all about you, making sure they understand what your needs may be different from someone else’s.

2) They can pinpoint your individual nutritional needs.

No two persons are exactly alike. That’s why a dietitian’s insight is a great way to make sure you’re getting a balanced diet that suits you and your body. For example, a keto diet may work well for someone whose diet contains a lot of refined sugars, but it may not work as well for someone who exercises a lot. A dietician would know.

3) They will help you create or critique your goals.

It’s good to have goals, especially SMART goals. Yet, sometimes we can be unrealistic about what can be achieved in a given amount of time. A dietitian will help you create or adjust your goals so that you have realistic expectations about what will work, enjoy the journey when you get there, and celebrate the milestones you meet along the way!

4) They can help keep you on track during your journey.

After helping you create a plan, the dietitian may use follow-up visits to keep you on track. These include assessing your progress along the way and making adjustments when necessary.

5) They can help you deal with emotional issues related to food.

There are usually deeper mental and emotional issues that may be causing your weight gain or your health to be out of control. Dietitians get to know you to help you identify and understand you so you can work on treatment. Knowing why you made poor health choices can go a long way in helping you achieve your goals.

6) They may assess your health history and lab work.

You should always consult with your physician regarding treatment of any health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol. Nutrition also often plays an important role in proper treatment plans. Dietitians can help assess how healthy eating can work wonders in treating other health conditions.

7) They can give fitness guidance.

Not everyone can or wants to exercise as part of a weight loss plan. However, a dietician can help assess how much fitness you may need to not only meet your weight loss goals*, but get there faster.

8) They provide inspiration.

An often overlooked (but essential!) part of every weight loss journey is motivation. You can find motivation to keep going in many ways – online groups, friends and family, social media, you name it. But there’s something about having your own personal dietitian every step of the way, encouraging you and your progress. It’s a deep kind of inspiration that you won’t find anywhere else.
