Patient often report in meetings with our clinical team that there is a lot of confusion around dieting and different things that they hear are best practices in the media. One of the options that is useful in figuring out this information is to hire a dietician who is formally trained in the nutrition specialty and is hopefully using resources to remain in the new scientific literature on the information.
With our new trial, patients will be able to work one on one with a dietician utilizing Nutrisystem over a period of 68 weeks with frequent meetings for free. This is an opportunity that is rarely afforded and is something that many will want to take advantage of if they are eligible. If you refer to our previous blog post, the exclusion and inclusion criteria for the trial were added so if you think you are someone that would be interested in this, HERE is the link to that blog post.
Another important piece to remember with diet confusion is that you are not the only one that is confused. The most highly educated in the fields of nutritional science will argue for ketogenic diets and plant based diets even though they are opposing diets. It’s important to not reduce our language down to looking at each individual food as good or bad, but rather to maintain an entire lifestyle of moderate, healthful choices that are vibrant in color and make us feel good and that taste good. Aim for foods of the earth full of color and monounsaturated fats such as avocado, nuts, seeds, coconut, and olive oil. The rules shouldn’t be complex, and they should not be restrictive. If this is not something that you can maintain for the long run then it’s not something that you want to worry with.
We have many other trials that might apply to you and if you are interested, HERE is the link for those trials. Feel free to reach out to us at any time, and we are more than happy to help.
