Weight concerns includes goals centred around weight loss or weight gain. I practice as a non-diet dietitian, meaning that I do not promote dieting or restrictive meal plans for the purpose of weight loss as they can negatively impact our physical, social, and mental health. Instead, I have a weight-inclusive and health-focused approach when working with clients. This means that I like to take away the emphasis on the number on the scale, and shift towards using health markers to measure progress and positive lifestyle changes. Weight is a not a good indicator of how healthy we are on the inside and contrary to popular belief, weight is not a behaviour that we have control over. I truly believe that we all come in different shapes and sizes and that regardless of this, we can promote health and well-being at any size.
By focusing on health rather than weight, we can focus on choosing foods that nourish our bodies and mind, instead of focusing on which ones have the least amount of calories, and in turn we can develop a much better relationship with food and promote mental and emotional wellbeing too. I want to note that I cannot guarantee weight loss, as each person's body will respond differently to improvements in eating habits, but I can ensure that we will work together to set goals and establish health-promoting eating habits that are sustainable throughout your life.
