Although bookshelves overflow and general nutritional advice abounds in the media, magazines, newspapers and television shows, nutrition is by a long shot not a “one size fits all”.
Both the public at large and health professionals need to realise the urgency of early nutritional treatment in the long-term management of health and disease.
The most important part in our consultation is really not what i have to say, but what you tell me about your lifestyle and eating habits during my history-taking. A careful dietary history will include questions to highlight certain areas to give me information as to where your problem-areas are. We all believe “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”, and read about too good to be true quick fixes and fat burners. How wonderful if it was that easy!
Nutrition is a very complex science and requires understanding of your particular situation, preferences and habits, in order to help you with a long-term solution.
