Nutrition Services at Beyond the Mirror

 

The need for nutrition counseling and nutrition education continues to grow with the increase in chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity. The registered dietitian (RD) on staff specializes in teaching people to eat mindfully and focus on creating a healthy relationship with food. The RD can help you to develop an individualized eating plan that will help you reach your personal health goals, in a way that will support you both physically and emotionally.


Nutritional Counseling is designed to help individuals who:


  • Struggle with body image issues
  • Struggle with weight gain &/or weight loss
  • Feel chronically fatigued and routinely lack energy
  • Have food allergies &/or intolerances
  • Routinely engage in ‘yo-yo’ dieting; only to regain the weight you have lost
  • Struggle with emotional eating and often have eating binges that can seem out of control
  • Struggle with restrictive eating
  • Have high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure, or medical conditions
  • Want to learn how to recognize your body’s natural hunger & fullness cues

Common myths:

 

Myth: Only individuals who need to lose weight benefit from seeing a registered dietitian.


Fact: Dietitians understand that weight loss is not the only nutritional issue that individuals struggle with. ANY person with ANY type of disordered eating, body image concern, or special diet/nutritional need is encouraged to seek the advice of an RD. They are considered food and nutrition experts and can work with you to develop a balanced and healthy eating plan that meets your specific needs and goals.

 

Myth: Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa are the only eating disorders serious enough to warrant seeing a dietitian


Fact: A person does not need to have the diagnosis of these serious conditions in order to benefit from working with a dietitian. There are many people who do not have a diagnosis of Anorexia or Bulimia but who still have irregularities in eating behavior that require a need for nutritional counseling and guidance.  

 

Myth: All the dietitian will try to do is get their clients to gain weight.


Fact: Restoring weight to be within an appropriate and healthy range is an important step in the road to recovering from an eating disorder. However, it is by far not the only step or focus of the nutrition services provided at Beyond the Mirror. Working with clients to develop a healthy, nutritious diet to suit their needs along with helping clients to gain skills in order to re-discover their internal hunger and satiety cues are also important roles of the RD.

 

Myth: Recovering from an eating disorder is rare.


Fact: Recovery may be challenging and will take time but it is absolutely possible. Participating in the many different types of healing services offered at Beyond the Mirror and having an individualized plan are major steps in the right direction to living a healthy balanced life, free from an eating disorder.
