The journey to a healthy, balanced life is difficult and full of temptations. But through determination, perseverance and making a conscious effort, success is possible.

But when it comes to finding a starting point, it can be daunting not knowing what to do. The first step that you should take is making up your mind to make healthy lifestyle changes. The second step to take is finding a nutritionist that can cater to your requirements.

But it’s also important to choose the right nutritionist. Here are a few things to consider when looking for one:

Experience

Remember the first time you went for a job interview? One of the first things your interviewer must have asked about is your work experience.

Experience is necessary when it comes to hiring a nutritionist. Just like a business organisation needs an experienced recruit to lead a healthy lifestyle, you need someone experienced.  This is important for a number of reasons.

One of these reasons is the fact that an experienced nutritionist has worked with other people. They understand that different individuals have different needs, motivations, challenges etc.  They take the time to get to know you and develop a plan that is specific to your body and lifestyle needs.

Certification

While a nutritionist does not require any formal education, it’s important to look for someone who has experience and a license.

Finding the right nutritionist or naturopath means they should at least have a diploma in the relevant field or certification.

Licensed and certified nutritionists are trained to make necessary lifestyle changes for their clients. They know their way around different methods and techniques that can be beneficial to their clients.

Counselling Skills

Most people believe that making lifestyle changes means changing their diet. This is simply not true. Your diet is a part of your life but doesn’t cover everything.

A good naturopath/nutritionist should have impeccable counselling skills to help you reduce stress in your life. They should have the skills to help you get through the emotional turmoil life brings.

You need someone who can provide you the right resources and tools to make a positive difference in your life.

Reputation

Don’t just consult any nutritionist. You need someone who can get you the results you need. You need someone who is known for their skills and coaching style; someone who receives good reviews and is trusted by their clients is someone who can help you achieve your goals.

I’m Nancy and no, I didn’t always look like I do in that picture on the right. My foray into health and fitness began as a brace-faced, 16 year-old who was too afraid to wear a two-piece at the beach because I felt my body paled in comparison to my much more toned friends.
