Dietitian Answers to Your Top Weight Loss Questions


Nutrition facts on how to move to your personal best weight

One of the top inquiries we receive for support is regarding nutrition for weight loss. Conversations and emails often start out with something like:

  • “I’ve been overweight for years, can you help me to lose weight?”
  • “I’ve tried everything and can’t seem to drop any pounds, what else can I do?”
  • “Menopause has not been easy and I seem to keep gaining weight, how can I lose weight?”
  • “I feel like I eat quite well but it seems with age the scale keeps going up, what can I do?”
  • “I’m an emotional eater and know what to do but can’t seem to follow it, can you help?”

My response is always the same. You may or may not lose weight coming to see us in our nutrition counseling practice. While we can’t guarantee a specific number on the scale or a certain number of pounds of weight loss (science has proven that no one can!), we will help you maximize your results through a non-dieting approach.

Here are some answers to 5 common questions about nutrition for weight loss:

Answering Questions on Top Nutrition Tips


We’ve Been Nominated a Top Nutrition Blog


Top Dietitian Blog for Healthy Eating

When fitness training provider OrigiGym Centre of Excellence did a search of over 10,000 fitness professionals from their database, our Registered Dietitian blog was voted as one of the best nutrition blogs under the clean eating niche.

There were 52 blogs selected and since our blog certainly wouldn’t fit under the categories of paleo, keto, vegan, vegetarian, recipe, dairy-free, gluten-free, or desserts, the closest match for where to categorize us would be under “clean eating.” The interesting thing about this is, we consider our approach to nutrition better classified by the hashtags: #balancednotclean #antidiet #allfoodscanfit.

We’ve never chosen to use the words “clean eating” on our blog since to “eat clean” implies that anything that is not a perfect nutritional nerdy choice can be considered the opposite (dirty).

Fruit Clafouti Recipe


Simple Dessert Recipe for the Oven, BBQ (or Even on the Fire When Camping)

This is a variation on a simple, French dessert. It is traditionally made with cherries, but you can substitute peaches, raspberries, blueberries, or really any softer fruit you prefer. Similar to an oven-baked pancake, this can be served warm or cool, and can be a dessert or indulgent breakfast option.

We specialize in the achievement of health without guilt or complexity. Since 2000, our Calgary nutritionists have offered nutrition counselling, professional speaking, educational resources, media expertise as well as food and grocery industry consulting. We also offer a one of a kind online nutrition course "The Pursuit of Healthiness" for individuals and employees looking to achieve better health, energy and move towards your personal best weight (still enjoying foods you love).

We stand for balanced living and no unnecessary food restrictions. You can count on us for healthy eating advice that always saves room for your favorites.

Live Deliciously,

The Dietitians at Health Stand Nutrition
