We all know we should be trying to eat a healthy balanced diet, get enough protein, drink enough water and get some exercise. But for some of us we need a little bit of extra guidance. Just like you might get a personal trainer at the gym to help you achieve your goals, getting advice from a Nutrition professional can help you understand your body and how to look after it better.
+From a Nutritionist or Nutritional Therapists perspective personalised nutrition means:
+Developing unique guidelines for every individual.
+Specific recommendations based on lifestyle, history, and goals.
+Tailoring a ‘generic’ wellbeing plan to suit you.
For example: Intermittent fasting has been demonstrated to have multiple health benefits including weight management, cardiovascular health improvements, energy level balancing and improvements in sleep (to name a few). But, the manner in which you follow a fasting pattern and the nutritional support and advice you will need as an individual will vary, not only between people, but also with time. What suited you two years ago may no longer be what fits and works for you now.
