I have a woman prediabetic, I am working with her and she says she knows it all, has worked with a dietician, yet continues to eat all fruit and processed grains for her main diet. Her stomach is huge!! How do I get through to her the damage she is doing? She will eat an apple and a banana for breakfast, oranges for lunch. etc.
Obviously she is addicted to sugar (even if this comes from fruits). I would bet that the rest of her diet is not that clean either. She by telling you that “she has worked” with a dietitian in the past means nothing. You could suggest to her to make another appointment with her dietitian or a dietitian you like to work with and then have an open communication channel with the dietitian to make sure you are all in the same page. Eventually she will hit the “wall”. She needs to understand that she hired you for a reason and that reason is for you to help her get out of her old habits and search for a new and healthier lifestyle.
