Benefits of Working with a Renal Nutritionist vs. Going It Alone 

If you're thinking about starting your health journey alone, you might want to reconsider. Working with a renal nutritionist has many benefits compared to adopting a renal diet on your own.

Access to an individualized nutrition plan

One of the best things a nutritionist can do for you is to create an individualized plan for your specific health needs and goals. A generic program might help you make some progress, but you'll eventually hit a plateau in your health journey. An individualized nutrition plan focusing on renal health can be adapted and changed depending on your health and any concerns you have.

Feel better equipped to handle chronic diseases

An image of an arrow icon
Working with a renal nutritionist gives you the tools and information to handle chronic illnesses like chronic kidney disease. A renal nutritionist can teach you the best foods for your kidney health. They will be able to explain the benefits of a renal diet that is low in sodium and phosphorus but high in good-quality protein. On a practical level, they can give you specific examples of meals to prepare that fit the criteria for a renal diet. Your dietitian can also inform you of ways to improve your overall health and prevent other chronic diseases.

Your Personal Nutritionist in Houston Is Just a Click Away

If you decide that a renal dietitian is right for you, you might consider an online nutritionist. There are many reasons why choosing Top Nutrition Coaching is an excellent choice for nutrition counseling.

Get Over the Houston Hurdles and Get Back to Health

Even after setting realistic health goals for yourself, it can be challenging to stick to your plan if you don't have regular access to healthy, nutritious foods. Unfortunately, many Houstonians struggle to follow a healthy diet because of the challenges of living in the city.

Busy schedules and plentiful fast food options

Houstonians tend to be incredibly busy people. Between work commutes, school dropoffs and pickups, family commitments, and activities and hobbies, setting aside time for meal planning can seem almost impossible. Many people rely on fast food or processed pre-packaged ready meals. For those trying to follow a renal diet, this can be very detrimental to health, as these meal options tend to be full of simple carbohydrates and sodium.

Limited access to nutritious foods

If you don't have easy access to nutritious foods – such as lean meats, fish, nuts, seeds, whole grains, legumes, and dairy – reaching your health goals can be very difficult. However, if you are like many Houstonians, you may live a significant distance away from the nearest grocery store or supermarket. Some grocery stores have left certain areas in recent years, increasing the distance people must go to get groceries. Houston is a very car-dependent city, which can leave many residents with limited access to fresh, healthy foods.

Full Transparency Pros and Cons 

There is a lot to consider when deciding on the best approach to nutrition and health. There are many different programs available, each with pros and cons. Although we firmly believe that working with an online renal nutritionist is your best option, here are a few alternatives.

Online Meal Plans

Pros: 

  • You may be able to save some time and money on grocery shopping by following a meal plan.
  • You avoid the stress of having to figure out what you're going to cook or eat because it's already planned.

Cons:

  • There aren't many meal plans for renal diets, which must be low in sodium and potassium.
  • Many meal plans focus on weight loss rather than promoting healthy kidneys.

Diet Companies

Pros

  • If your doctor wants you to lose weight in addition to taking care of your kidneys, a diet company might be able to provide specific foods for weight management. Just make sure to carefully check the nutrition facts to make sure they are kidney-friendly.

Cons:

  • Some diet companies make false promises to get you to sign up for their programs or rely on fad diets that don't work.
  • Excessive caloric restriction can be incredibly unhealthy and dangerous for individuals with renal issues such as chronic kidney disease. In some cases, strict diet plans can lead to digestive issues or eating disorders.

In-Person Nutritionists

Pros

  • If you choose an in-person nutritionist, you don't have to worry about internet access or having a working device. 
  • Some people prefer in-person meetings or aren't comfortable with virtual appointments.

Cons

  • You'll have to travel to meet with your nutritionist, which can be expensive and time-consuming if they live on the other side of Houston and you have to pay for gas or public transportation.
  • You are limited to nutritionists in your local area rather than having access to renal nutrition experts who provide nutrition counseling online, even if they live in another state.
  • You'll have to meet with your nutritionist at a time that fits their schedule, rather than having the flexibility of online sessions.
