3 Ways a Dietitian Can Help You in 2022

Feb 04, 2022Erin Good, RD, LD

Happy New Year from your dietitians! We hope you are enjoying an easier, healthier and happier year than ever before. Once you discover your internal motivation for wellness, your new habits will soon feel enjoyable. Here are three tips for making a lasting lifestyle change in 2022 and three ways your dietitians can help you along the journey.

1. Practice Autonomy

Before making a lifestyle change, reflect on what behavior modifications would be most realistic, obtainable and fun for YOU. Choose something you WANT to do. If you are excited about the idea, it will be much easier to stay committed to the process. Your path to wellness is unique to your needs and goals; it may not look like what everyone else is doing. This is a good thing. Your dietitian will listen to your nutrition story and help guide you in the right direction toward your goals. Together you will decide on the next best actions for your needs.

By scheduling this complimentary session, you will meet your registered dietitian virtually and learn about the services offered and what package is the perfect fit for you to start your wellness journey.

2. Obtain Mastery

Performing a task with thoughtfulness, skill and efficiency provides a certain level of satisfaction. We like to do things that we feel proficient in doing. Bring a trusted nutrition professional along as your accountability partner who can also assist in laying out a plan that is right for you. With the help of a dietitian, you will feel confident in your ability to get started on a balanced eating plan.

  • Recommended Nutrition Service for You: Hy-Vee Healthy Habits.    Eating healthy doesn’t have to be hard! Our dietitian-created menu program includes a 4-week meal plan including three meals and two to three snacks daily. The portions are aligned to fit your caloric needs and our program takes away the question of “What’s for dinner tonight?” This menu plan comes complete with a grocery shopping list and easy-to-follow recipes each week. Along the way, you will receive one-on-one support from a registered dietitian. For more information or to register, click on the link above. 

3. Find Purpose

External motivators will eventually run out. To stay consistent, dig deeper for what moves you internally. Focus on your internal rewards for sustainable progress. Recognizing the behaviors that make you feel less stressed, more energized and happier allows you to keep the momentum going because these actually make you feel good. Your dietitian will help you end the perfection mindset when it comes to wellness and help you realize the potential you carry and the purpose that keeps you internally motivated for a lifetime.

  • Recommended Nutrition Service for You: BEGIN: A Healthy Lifestyle and Weight Management ProgramBe accountable. Be determined. Be motivated. That run-down, low energy, blah-times-10 feeling shouldn’t be your norm. Now’s the time to begin your healthier lifestyle journey. Join a  dietitian for a 10-week virtual group nutrition program teaching you how to prioritize your health, gain more energy, and boost confidence. BEGIN is not a diet.
