Dietitian/Nutritionist - Specializes in Guidance Lifestyle
Guidance lifestyle treatments are guidelines to healthy living by making changes to the lifestyle of a particular person by altering his or her eating habits and normal routine. Obesity not only hits on the self-confidence of a person but also causes various health issues. This is where lifestyle weight management comes in. Healthy lifestyle means eating healthy foods, which include fruits, veggies and whole grains. Eating too much is different from eating healthy. Mid meals are also very important to avoid starvation. A diet chart prepared by a dietician will help as starving or over-eating should be avoided. Another important factor that contributes to a healthy lifestyle is physical activity. Including any type of physical activity in the daily regime is vital for weight management and it reduces the risk of many diseases, which may occur due to obesity. Smoking and high intake of alcohol are obviously harmful and may hinder a healthy lifestyle. Another major factor triggered in guidance lifestyle treatment is stress management. Stress in life may cause a person to be preoccupied and not concentrate on a healthy lifestyle. This could pose a danger to the person's weight management too. Stress management techniques should be incorporated in a person's daily routine. By altering the above factors like eating healthy food, avoiding smoking, reducing the intake of alcohol and managing stress result not only in a reduction in weight but also a change in their daily life and state of mind.
