I have a few different clients that I have been working with for a while now. During our sessions we get into conversations about nutrition and their, relatively deeply rooted, philosophy is based on the (mis)information from the different diet plans….paleo, low-carb, etc. etc. I try to present the evidence-based side of nutrition, but to no avail. What are some ways to get them away from the ideas of the well-marketed “popular” diets?
One thing I do from time to time is recommend they book a session with a nutritionist. I have one whom I can feel comfortable personally recommending. This is not in place of conversations I may have with someone, but it does take my ‘opinions’ out of the mix and let them have the option to speak with someone squarely trained in this area. They may say exactly what I would, but can do so in a way that may reach the person better.
