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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
