Weight loss

To effectively help someone to loose weight,
You have to bring them up and avoid bringing them down.
Loosing weight is hard, they will need all the encouragement and positive thoughts available.

Saying "You're fat, you need to loose weight" "Can't believe you let yourself become like this" ... isn't going to help. The person already knows this. They are probably hyper-aware of it. They may be depressed about it already. We, as dietician should NOT contribute to ill-health.

I strongly believe this.

In practice, i am always going to provoke change through encouragement. "You are so capable of  doing this" "I believe that you can do this" "I can't wait to share in your success".

Thinking about helping people gets me excited.
