I meet people who want to lose weight every day.
They come to my office when fads diets have failed them and they’re looking for professional help.
Don’t get me wrong. Some diets offer sound advice. Others belong in the trash bin.
But the real problem with every diet is this: They aren’t made for you as an individual. They’re cookie-cutter advice for everyone.
Why is that important?
Take, for example, tree nuts. They’re a perfectly healthy food for most people. But others may get a life-threatening allergic reaction.
A registered dietitian creates a safe meal plan that’s free of allergens and one that matches your food intolerances.
For some, broccoli is a staple of a healthy diet. Others refuse to put it in their mouth.
The good news is, there’s an abundance of veggies rich in nutrients and vitamins to pick from that will help you get healthier without insulting your taste buds.
With the help of a nutritionist, you choose the foods you like (or don’t like.) Their job is to craft you a healthy meal plan that helps you lose weight and appeals to your taste buds.
At the end of the day, your weight loss results only stick as long as you can stick to your meal plan.
Those are two main reasons why hiring a dietitian is a good call if you want to take charge of your health.
But the problem with that is the price tag.
Not everyone can afford to shell out up to $100 an hour. And you may need a few sessions to dial in your diet.
That’s why I was excited when I got my hands on the Beyond Body personalized wellness book.
It’s a beautifully designed book that packs every tool and resource you need to transform your body and health.
You start off with a quiz where you answer a set of questions about your food preferences, health condition, allergies, and weight goal — similar to ones I would ask my patients.
What you get is a personalized wellness book tailored to you and your goals.
From a personalized meal plan that fits your taste buds… to mindful eating techniques… to stress management tips, and more — I would call Beyond Body your personal health & wellness bible.
But the best part?
Beyond Body comes at a fraction of the cost of hiring a dietitian.
Now you may be wondering… Why would I endorse such a thing that replaces my job as a dietitian?
As much as I love helping people live their healthiest lives… There’s A LOT of people that need help. And I have just so many hours in my day.
Obesity is rampant across the world with 1 in 3 Americans diagnosed with diabetes or prediabetes.
We, dietitians, need help.
And it’s innovative products like Beyond Body that give millions a fair chance to transform their health and wellbeing, even if you’re on a budget.
So if your goal is to shed pounds and feel amazing in the most sustainable way… a way that doesn’t require you to give up everything you love to eat (or tells you to eat something you hate), I recommend you give Beyond Body book a try.
