Benefits of a personalised approach to nutrition

Thursday, February 11, 2021

If you are concerned about your weight or overall health, food is usually the first thing you start to analyze. Unfortunately, no matter how great a particular diet may work for your best friend, it may not prove as effective for you. There have been so many fad diets over the years and each one seems to contradict the next. One thing they have in common, however, is the fact that they all seem to highlight the fact that there is no one-size-fits-all plan.

Different body types
One of the first things that need to be determined is body type. We are not all the same height, shape and size. This means that, from the get-go, your plan will look totally different from that of your friend. Your height, weight, body shape and even factors that come down to your DNA will help determine the best course of action.

Different goals
Not everyone has the same weight loss or health goals. You may have put on a few pounds during the winter or you may have accumulated significant excess weight over several years. Either way, the best plan for you is one that caters to your goals while keeping them as realistic as possible. In other words, you should not expect to lose too much weight too quickly. There is such a thing as unhealthy weight loss which can be even more damaging. Even if progress might seem slow, a steady approach is the best one for your overall health.

Your age
The older you get, the more difficult it can be to lose weight and get into better shape. Our bodies tend to experience changes over the years. Hormone levels vary depending on your age and this can impact your weight as well as the effectiveness of certain weight loss plans. Therefore, age is a significant factor when creating a personalised approach to nutrition.

How active you are
The more active you are, the more calories your body may require. If you limit your intake of food excessively and overdo it in the gym almost every day, you can experience a number of unpleasant side effects. They may not occur right away but, within a few weeks, you will certainly start to notice these changes.

With so many factors to consider when designing your nutrition plan, it's no wonder so many people end up with more questions than answers. Having a professional assist you with your nutrition plan is the best way to get all the nutrients you need while working towards your personal goals.
