It might help you see something that you aren’t seeing.  Maybe you aren’t eating enough protein, or too many carbs.  You might even be eating too little or too much!  A nutritionist could look at your meals and help you find ways to improve your diet.

If you’re not already, keep the most honest food journal that you can, and track all of your activity. That will help any nutritionist who you see help you the most. They’ll be able to tell you what you’re lacking and what you may want to cut back on. There’s definitely no harm in seeing a nutrisionist if you can, knowledge is power!

I agree that it couldn’t hurt to see one and see if there are any ways to improve what you are currently doing.  I would follow seattlemeg’s advice and keep a precise food journal for a few weeks before you go.  That way s/he will be able to evaluate exactly where the problem may be.  Remember though, it sometimes takes a while before the number actually starts to drop on the scale.  If you keep measurements of yourself, that may be a better indicator of how your body is changing with your current plan. Good luck!

I actually went and saw a nutritionist last week and she basically told me everything I know already. I know the foods I should be eating, and I know the foods I shouldnt be eating… Don’t get me wrong, she was very knowledgable and she gave me some great tips, but nothing you cant find online somewhere.

That being said, it wasnt a total loss. She gave me a great tool to portion out the correct size meals we should be eating. I think once I get the hang of that, I will start seeing more results.

I don’t know how much it costs to see a nutrionist, but a bodybugg is only $150ish.  I got one for Christmas, and it tracks how many calories you burn during a day, which you can then compare with how many you eat.  It was eye opening for me.

Do you know how many calories a day you are consuming? I had to track everything to really see where the problems were. I also bought a body bugg to see how many calories I was burning, once I knew the numbers it was just a matter of adjusting everything and the weight started coming off.  I also eat very low carb and try to eat at least 60g of protein a day.

Personally, I think that anyone could benefit from seeing a nutritionist!! There’s a lot more to nutrition than calories, and a lot of people don’t know where to start when making healthy decisions. I would LOVE to see a nutritionist but I’m not able to afford it right now (I don’t think insurance usually covers this, but I’m not positive). I say go for it!!
