How a Nutritionist can help with weight loss dubai?

WHY SHOULD OUR FOCUS BE ON NUTRITION?

Food is the fuel for our bodies. The nutrients, minerals and vitamins that our body extracts from the meals we eat influence our biochemistry and physiology in subtle and obvious ways. When we focus on nutrition, we are able to influence eating habits to make them healthier, helping patients to achieve weight management goals in a safe and healthy manner.

A clinical dietitian will always work hard to understand your individual situation, including your medical history and conditions like diabetes and food allergies that may influence the dietary choices that can be made. Nutritional science as a field is dedicated to understanding how our body uses nutrients, better nutrition has been shown in multiple studies to have positive impact on the body, especially at important times like pregnancy, when nutrition can play a huge role. Better nutrition has beneficial effects on life expectancy, stronger immunity and lower risks of non-communicable diseases.

OBESITY RELATED COMPLICATIONS ON THE RISE

A recent study found that from a sample of 4,971 Emirati men and women, 32.2% of Emirati men and 41.8% of women are clinically obese.

These rates are similar to those seen in the expatriate community living in the UAE,  a study conducted in 2013 found that around 43% of expatriates questioned were overweight and 32% were considered clinically obese.

Sedentary lifestyles, changing eating habits and the increasing prevalence of fast food and manufactured foods in the diet of both Emiratis and expatriates have a lot to do with this worrying trend.

THE NUTRITIONISTS APPROACH TO DIET

In seeking to optimise a person's diet, our nutritionists will seek to encourage a healthier relationship and understanding of food.

You may hear words like complex carbohydrates or the nervous system and never have heard what these are and how they impact your day to day life, from mood swings to weight gain and loss to the ability to concentrate and remember.

A holistic approach to nutrition and diet starts with an understanding of the human body. An important consideration is the parasympathetic nervous system, the sympathetic nervous system and the enteric nervous system

Who would benefit from a consultation with a nutritionist or a clinical dietitian?

A consultation with a clinical dietitian provides an opportunity to obtain a holistic understanding of your history and relationship with food and diet. A nutritionist can take the time to understand medical disorders and complications that arise, whilst also looking at improvements that can be made in daily life, especially considering the Dubai lifestyle and what the food options are like in a city as diverse and fast-paced as Dubai.

At Valiant a nutritionist in Dubai can help provide nutrition and dietary planning for a wide range of patients including those with auto-immune diseases and conditions, digestive complications, cardio-metabolic diseases and women's health.
