The Common Questions Every Diet Professional Is Asked (And Their Answers!)

When you've Googled and Googled but you keep getting mixed results, it's time to put your most pressing diet and nutrition questions to the experts. Here are the #1 questions every professional gets asked on the regular, and the answers! 1) WHY CAN'T I LOSE WEIGHT? Every human body is designed with different nutritional needs so what works for your friends might not work for you. A nutritious diet full of unprocessed, fresh and healthy foods and a steady exercise regime is the top recommended way to maintain a good wellbeing and shed pounds. 2) HOW CAN I GET RID OF BELLY FAT? Eat your veggies! As the saying goes, 'abs are made in the kitchen'. "I find that when people focus on eating more vegetables, they naturally eat less of the more caloric foods and are able to lose weight easier." explains Marisa Moore, MBA. RDN. LD. 3) WILL A GLUTEN-FREE DIET HELP ME LOSE WEIGHT? "There's little evidence to support the idea that a gluten-free diet promotes weight loss alone." explains Elisa Zeid, MS, RDN, CDN. "Many gluten-free foods pack in calories and sugar, and people may think that just because they don't contain gluten they're somehow better for them when it comes to promoting weight loss.” Try switching to whole grain breads and pastas and cutting out sugary foods to see results. 4) I DON’T HAVE TIME TO BE HEALTHY, WHAT ARE EFFORTLESS WAYS TO BE A LITTLE HEALTHIER? Being healthy is a lifestyle, so it ultimately requires some commitment. "Get your hydration, meal timing and sleep on point." says Carolyn Brown, MS RD. She also recommends reducing your screen time when it comes to your smartphone or the TV, and getting moving every now and then to combat the harmful health effects of sitting.
