Our Dietitians Help Create Long-Term Changes

 At Health Loft, our Dietitians are big fans of long-term change rather than short term fixes. In the food and nutrition world, short-term solutions seem to get the most attention in the media and on your social media feeds. Short term solutions can work for some, but typically lead to long term frustration and can put up a barrier to achieving better health. What our Registered Dietitians aim to do with our clients is work with them to transition from a short-term solution for their goals, to a long-term healthy living mindset. Our overall goal with nutrition counseling is to help you develop positive habits that eventually become second nature. We want healthy living and nutritious eating to be exciting for you, and this can only be done by listening to your needs and asking what your personal long-term health goals are. 

Long-Term Change in your health

Wellness is a long-term commitment.

Long-term change looks different for every person, but here are examples of long-term changes our clients have been making:

  • Developing a positive relationship with food
  • Adding “color” to every meal
  • Introducing mindful eating habits
  • Addressing stress factors that impact food intake
  • Moving their body in some way every day
  • Celebrating body positivity
  • Learning how to cook new foods and try new recipes
  • Involving their family in cooking and healthy eating 

    Health Loft dietitians in Chicago are here to help.

    At Health Loft, we believe that you define what wellness means for you (rather than give you specific numbers to aim for) and help you achieve those personal goals. We help you build long-term positive eating habits by listening to your needs and goals and walking alongside you in your health journey.  If you are interested in long-term change and want to work with a registered dietitian, give us a call at (312) 374-5399 or click below to schedule an appointment with a Health Loft dietitian in Chicago, IL today.
