What to eat for health, energy or a weight concern

One of the most common questions we get asked as Calgary nutritionists is simply “what is the best diet to follow?” If you are seeking better health, energy or have a weight concern it can be very confusing to know what to eat. Some programs have you counting calories, macros, points, servings, grams of carbs and more. Just about everyone has an opinion on this subject and often times the opinions are completely opposite or have changed and evolved with time. Take keto and paleo diets for instance, the foods you would be so-called “allowed” to eat are dramatically different than vegan and plant based diets. So how do you make sense of this? What should you eat according to our team of professional Registered Dietitians? What truly is the best eating style?

Any time one of the nutritionists in our practice is working with a client regardless of the goal or concern they are coming to see us for, our answer to the question “what is the best diet to follow?” is actually quite simple.

The best healthy eating lifestyle is the one you can sustain for life.

What truly is the best eating style?

Any time one of the nutritionists in our practice is working with a client regardless of the goal or concern they are coming to see us for, our answer to the question “what is the best diet to follow?” is actually quite simple.

The best healthy eating lifestyle is the one you can sustain for life.

If we break this down further there are a couple of key words to look at here.

First of all our goal is to have you think about the best lifestyle you can follow rather than the best diet (after all the word diet has the word die in it and often brings about negative feelings of deprivation). Building a lifestyle means you have thought about eating FULLY. Eating fully is the balance between eating healthfully (foods chosen for geeky nutritious reasons that improve health) as well as eating soulfully (foods chosen purely for fun, social enjoyment and taste). One without the other leads to imbalance in either wellness or quality of life.

This brings me to the second word that is really important in the statement “the best healthy eating lifestyle is the one you can sustain for life.” Another important word here is sustain. Ideas of what to follow are endless but actually being able to stick to an eating plan is difficult. Any short term cleanse, detox, rigid plan or diet that will end in a matter of days or weeks simply lacks benefit in your long term health and often leads to feelings of failure when you are unable to follow this. Time and time again we see “food rebel” behavior happen when our clients go off a rigid diet plan (aka overeating forbidden foods). The worst part is the heavy emotional toll our clients feel when feelings of guilt, shame and failure creep in.

For the record – there is nothing fundamentally wrong with YOU if you have not been able to stick to a diet. The diet was fundamentally flawed from the start.

As a Registered Dietitian for close to 20 years, I have worked with thousands of individuals, parents and employees that want to look and feel better each day. I’ve been listening to your goals, interests and challenges. I have an idea of where you have been stuck or what caused you to fall off the wagon. I’ve been studying solutions to help you overcome these roadblocks and move forward with confidence.
My mission is to help you achieve health without guilt or complexity. I want you to understand how to eat FULLY:
Eating fully = Healthfully + Soulfully

SOULFULLY choose foods chosen exclusively for taste, enjoyment and social fun.

What to do if you find yourself eating when you know you are not hungry

“I can’t seem to stop stuffing my face when I get stressed”

“I know I am eating when I am not really hungry, but don’t know how to stop”

“Evenings are lonely and I know I unwind from a tiring day with food”

These are common examples of some of the things my team of Calgary nutritionists hear with the clients we serve. In fact, as a Registered Dietitian for close to 20 years I would rank emotional eating as one of the top nutrition and psychology challenges facing those struggling with their weight and health. If you find yourself eating when you are not really hungry or in response to stress or other uncomfortable feelings, you are certainly not alone.
