In my work as a sports dietitian, I have long struggled with the concept of ‘dieting’. I have always experienced an internal conflict when it comes to the whole weight loss and ‘dieting’ gig. My job is to help people find a pattern of eating that they enjoy, they help meet their nutritional requirements for good health long term and that fuels the work they are doing day-to-day and in their sport. My work is by no means just about weight loss. You can want to eat healthy foods without any desire to lose weight, although many assume that the only reason you would go to a dietitian is to learn about losing weight.
