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 at a diet & nutrition clinic in Dubai 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.

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
