It seems like everyone is on a diet these days. While it’s widely contested which diet is best, the very act of dieting seems to have become one of the country’s national pastimes. The Boston Medical Center indicates approximately 45 million Americans diet each year while spending $33 billion on weight-loss products. These numbers are impressive, but often diets lead to yo-yoing results. You may lose 10 pounds only to gain it back (and then some) over the holidays or when life gets in the way of your overly-restrictive diet rules and limited calorie intake.
After years of unsuccessful dieting, many people turn to nutritionists to find a long-term weight-loss solution. Rather than asking you to cut out certain foods completely or restrict calories dramatically, a nutritionist’s job is to help you create healthy habits to find a well-balanced diet that complements your lifestyle. You can have your cake and eat it too — but your nutritionist will make sure plenty of fresh fruits and veggies are added into your meals as well.
Since most nutritionists practice what they preach, their diet is a good indication of what the rest of us should be eating. Here’s a peek into what they eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
