Frequently Asked Questions
I eat pretty healthy, so why do I need a nutritionist?
You can eat healthy and exercise but you still may not be eating the foods that are best for you. Or you may need to take a supplement as you may not necessarily be getting the nutrients that you need from your diet alone. At Koru Nutrition Inc., we have extensive experience in this. There are many foods that have hidden dangers, and media and marketing can lead us to believe things are good for you when in actual fact they aren't. A nutritionist can help dispel many myths and misunderstandings and lead you in the right direction to optimal health and weight loss-in a way that's right for you.
I know what I need to do. I have all the information. My problem is that I can never stick to a diet or to a consistent healthy eating plan.
You are not alone. Many diets restrict your caloric intake and are not sustainable or realistic/practical over the long term. They may lead to initial weight loss but once you are off the diet you gain the weight back and usually with a few more extra pounds as well. The goal is to establish an eating plan that fits with your lifestyle, but also allows you to treat yourself and not feel guilty or deprived. At Koru Nutrition we want to help you establish eating habits that are obtainable, sustainable, -and enjoyable.
