Crystal Higgins, Registered Dietitian, talks about how emotional eating can prevent people from reaching their weight loss goals.
A local nutritionist is someone who specializes in nutritional science and health. A local nutritionist and a registered dietitian are similar, but generally a registered dietitian has specific certifications. If you have prostate cancer, a local nutritionist can help you create a healthy diet plan to support healing and strength. Studies show that a diet rich in vegetables, fruits, legumes and whole grains can actually prevent certain types of cancer. A healthy diet can reduce prostate cancer progression and reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer. If you have prostate cancer, you will work with a local oncologist to treat your cancer. Depending on the stage and grade of prostate cancer you have, you may undergo radiation, hormone therapy, chemotherapy or something known as active surveillance (watching the cancer rather than treating it). Talking to your local oncologist about the ways working with a local nutritionist may help can be a good start. Whether you’[re recovering from prostate cancer removal with laporoscopic surgery or starting chemotherapy, a local nutritionist can help you increase energy, mobility and strength through diet. A local nutritionist can also help you lower cholesterol by eating a high protein diet; eating a low-fat and low-sodium diet; understanding how a low-inflammatory diet can support your health; reduce nausea from chemotherapy through certain foods and drinks and lose weight. Talk to your local family physician or oncologist about how a local nutritionist can help you.
