In a city where everyone seems to be obsessed with their looks, trying to lose weight can be a stressful and lonely endeavor. That’s why LA residents are turning to the experts. If you’ve never thought about working with a weight management nutritionist, it might be time to consider the benefits of getting professional guidance to reach the healthy weight you’ve always dreamed about.
Over the last few years, an increasing number of health and wellness services have moved online, offering clients greater choice, flexibility, and convenience – not to mention better access to highly qualified professionals. Read on to find out why virtual nutrition counseling is an excellent option for Los Angeles residents and why Top Nutrition Coaching can rightly boast about having one of the best networks of online nutritionists in the country.
All of the nutritionists at Top Nutrition Coaching have been certified as registered dietitians and are approved to practice in the state of California. Many of our nutritionists have also completed master’s degrees and further qualifications to gain additional expertise in their areas of specialization.
To become a registered dietitian in Los Angeles, you must hold a bachelor’s degree from an Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics-approved program. You will need to complete both the academic and experiential requirements, as well as a dietetic internship comprising 1,200 hours of practical experience. Following the internship, there is a mandatory Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) exam that all candidates must pass to become certified.
Even after becoming a registered dietitian, the CDR expects nutritionists to continue their education and career advancement through continuing education. This involves completing 75 hours of continuing professional education every 5 years to maintain certification as a registered dietitian. As part of this process, many dietitians choose to study one or more specialties such as oncology nutrition, sports dietetics, or pediatric nutrition.
In a city as image-conscious as Los Angeles, struggling with your weight can be an incredibly isolating experience. From magazines and billboards to dieting gimmicks and weight loss clinics, the city is saturated with messages about how important it is to be slim. But what many Los Angeles residents truly crave is a meaningful, sustainable path to a healthy diet and lifestyle.
People outside of Los Angeles frequently imagine the city to be populated with movie stars and supermodels, with everyone spending their time lounging at the beach or going to nightclubs. In reality, though, it’s a city like any other, with infrastructure problems, an abundance of unhealthy food, and health care inaccessibility. Nearly a quarter of Los Angeles County residents are obese, which puts them at much greater risk for health conditions such as heart disease, high cholesterol, and diabetes.
Anyone who has ever lived in Los Angeles will be intimately familiar with the city’s transportation issues. From traffic jams to lengthy bus routes, getting around the city can be challenging and time-consuming – not to mention expensive. This can make attending doctor’s appointments, exercise classes, and nutrition workshops nearly impossible. It also means that many Angelenos live a significant distance away from the nearest supermarket that stocks fresh, affordable foods. Certain parts of the city have even been classified as “food deserts.”
Regardless of where you live in LA, consistently eating healthy foods and getting enough exercise isn’t necessarily straightforward. Many Angelenos work incredibly long hours at stressful jobs and live with family pressures such as taking care of their children or elderly relatives. There just isn’t always enough time to create balanced meals that require grocery shopping, finding appropriate recipes, and extensive food preparation, not to mention complications such as food allergies and the different preferences of various family members. Often, sticking to easy, well-known meals and routines is a necessity for people trying to meet the demands of school and work. And when it comes to nutrition, it can be difficult to know how to change the status quo on your own.
We firmly believe that working with our team of certified nutritionists is one of the best options for getting to a healthy range with your weight. However, there are many weight loss programs out there, and we want you to choose the one that you feel most comfortable with. Here are a few other options that you might want to consider for your weight loss journey.
