secrets from a dietitian: part 1

In the next two post, you're going to learn 3 unconventional secrets to success from a Dietitian.

Katy relays the story of sitting in her office with a client who’d had bariatric surgery several years ago.

“It just didn’t work for me. I’ve tried everything. I don’t know what else to do.”  She was looking down in shame, and Katy could tell she was feeling totally defeated. 

As Katy shared, “This is a really common struggle,” “And I want you to know it’s not your fault.” Her patient looked at her in disbelief. 

The same advice over and over again

You see, most people are accustomed to seeing a dietitian and being silently scolded and told to “eat this, not that...blah, blah, blah.”  It’s the reason that a lot of people avoid seeing a dietitian - because it feels like you’re in the principal’s office. 

Truth be told, most people already know what they “should” be eating after surgery. Heck, they even knew before having surgery, but that knowledge wasn’t enough. And it still isn’t. If information were enough to solve a person’s weight problems, bariatric surgery wouldn’t exist.

Thus, here you are in a frustrating dilemma: Knowing what you should be doing, but not being able to do it consistently.

So now what?

It’s time to start thinking about things differently.  If what you’ve been doing isn’t working then STOP DOING IT. 

That same old dieting advice that didn’t work for you before surgery isn’t going to work after either. Don’t worry, I can help. I have worked with hundreds of people who have had weight loss surgery. From that work I have honed in on some key factors that will actually make a difference for you. 

Katy has common sense advise that works. Tune in tomorrow for the 3 unconventional secrets to success!
