Dannette Fritzlan, nutritional specialist and Functional Medical Practitioner, teaches people to adopt new habits in exercise and nutrition. Whether you are trying to lose weight, gain muscle or prevent disease, there is a need to focus on balancing food intake with physical activity to achieve a healthy lifestyle. The goal of healthy eating is to develop a nutritional plan that you can maintain for life, not just a few weeks or months, or until you’ve hit your ideal weight. This means eat less than we do now. More specifically, it means eating far less of the unhealthy stuff such as refined sugar and food products which have way to many chemicals. The main problem with “diets” is that they simply don’t work. People often find they can’t stick with a diet for a long period of time. This is due to the fact that many diets aren’t realistic, are too restrictive, too complicated, and cut out certain food groups. Teaching a HEALTHY EATING PLAN (HEP) that you can live with and enjoy for life is my goal for you. We are all different. Most diets are “cookie cutter” diets, meaning it’s the same calorie intake and foods whether you are male or female, young or old, high or low activity level. Diets say eat this or that. Do this for 30 days. If I cut out sugar or reduce carbs, sure, I will lose weight. It’s a change in eating! These diets might be successful in losing weight but when the diet ends, people start slowly gaining the weight they lost back and sometimes even more. This happens due to depriving themselves of foods they love so they indulge and crave those foods even more once reintroduced back into their body. I can give anyone a “calorie diet” such as eat 1,500 calories a day. But will you know what to eat for your personal goals? We discuss your goals, stress, activity level, emotional eating, food cravings, sleep and food allergies. We will focus on behavioral choices along with the basic understanding of dietary patterns and help find an exercise plan to achieve long-lasting weight control and a healthy lifestyle.
