At a follow up appointment in 2 weeks you will be weighed (if required) and your food records and symptom records (if required) will be assessed. You will be provided with goals to achieve each fortnight, and will be educated thoroughly on your dietary needs. Regular follow ups are encouraged until you achieve your required weight or alternative dietary goals.
If you are specifically coming for weight loss you will be provided with food education as well as ways to manage emotional eating, binging, guilt eating and yo-yo dieting syndrome. Habit changes are just as important as dietary changes, particularly if you want to lose the weight permanently. We will make you become a non dieter!
It is ideal to initially see your dietitian for fortnightly appointments to ensure that you are on the right track, then eventually we encourage you to spread your appointments out to three weekly and then monthly, until you achieve your desired goals.
Remember in the end, you are in control.
Appointments can be tailored to suit your budget as well.
It does not hurt thereafter to see your dietitian even 3 times per year after your goals have been achieved to ensure compliance continues, just as you would go to your doctor for a check up.
