Email challenges sent to you every week for a couple or weeks and an invitation to join a group with likeminded people all having a go at the challenge? It all looked fine and dandy and the lady in charge had a video clip encouraging us all to be “visible” and to deal with issues such as shyness, esteem issues and the dreaded “imposter syndrome”.

3 reasons why Dietitians are unlikely to give you a meal plan

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Posted on Jun 3, 03:23 PM in and . Comments [2].

Often when people come to visit me, they are asking for or expecting a 7 or 14 day “meal plan”.

“Oh, don’t tell me what to do. I just need a meal plan” is what I hear, quite often.

This is a sentence Dietitians dread.

In fact, Dietitians are very unlikely to give you these kinds of meal plans for 3 main reasons:

Surviving the festive season- part 1
Advent calendars are being whipped out all over the country and people are preparing for the onslaught of the “festive season”. The festive season is a dangerous time when it comes to letting your guard down and the loosening up of healthy habits. There are parties, dinners, baking, the stressful rushing around, less activity due to the cold and those lovely Xmas treats everywhere. It doesn’t help that mince pies and sweets have been pushed on us by the supermarkets since November.

Why moderation isn’t as boring as it sounds.

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Posted on Jan 21, 01:21 PM in and . Comments [1].

Sometimes being a Dietitian just isn’t “sexy”. No, seriously! We can sound like old stick in the muds, trotting out the old “everything in moderation” line when others in the wide and varied world that is nutrition; may be encouraging that “new” lifestyle diet, (you know what I’m sayin’ – ala the newest super food, paleo, raw, sugar free, “clean”). These new super shiny “lifestyles” can sound like just the thing……
“From now, I’ll only eat “clean” and never let the poison that is- (insert latest “bad” food group here)- touch my lips. My body is a temple “.……..sounds good, doesn’t it?
