Reasons to consult a nutritionist

Nutritionist Zurich: reasons
The most important reasons (in our experience) to consult a nutritionist:

  • OVERWEIGHT / ADIPOSITAS: How can I lose weight healthily and permanently in a manageable period of time without starving myself? You may have already tried this without success, or the yo-yo effect has caught up with you.
  • BLOATING / DIGESTIVE PROBLEMS: How do I get rid of these annoying symptoms?
  • FOOD INTOLERANCES or ALLERGIES: e.g. gluten intolerance (celiac disease), lactose, fructose or histamine intolerance. Where is the ingredient I cannot tolerate and what are the alternatives?
  • DISEASES: e.g. cardiovascular disease, gastrointestinal disease, diabetes. How can I optimize my eating habits to lower my cholesterol and take less medication?
  • SPECIAL DIETS: e.g. vegan or vegetarian diet. How do I follow a proper vegan diet? So that I don't get deficiency symptoms?
  • OTHER: e.g. Gastric Bypass or Gastric Sleeve: What do I need to consider after surgery? Optimization of athletic performances.

"Classic" nutritional counseling process

  1. Current situation: Your personal situation, problems, wishes, goals, etc. are recorded.
  2. Nutrition history: Your nutritionist will work with you to analyze your eating habits and patterns, and may also conduct an exercise analysis.
  3. Diary: You may also need to keep a food/symptom diary, for example, to find out which foods you have developed an intolerance to.
  4. Counseling: You will receive general advice, tips, pamphlets, etc. tailored to your personal situation. These are usually based on the nutritional recommendations of the Swiss Society for Nutrition or the German Society for Nutrition. Follow-up appointments are also available as needed.

To lose weight: Metabolic Balance instead of a "classic" nutritionist

Metabolic Balance is much more specific:

You get a nutrition plan tailored to your body (based on blood analysis) with individual meal suggestions and a personal food list.

8 simple rules help you optimize your fat burning and make sure you don't get hungry.

We are actually (also) nutritionists but for more than 10 years, in our practice in Zurich, we have not been offering (traditional) nutritionism to people who want to lose weight, but only Metabolic Balance, because we have seen that it helps people reach their goals more easily and quickly.

Metabolic Balance is also "nutritionism", but is covered by health insurance as a separate method.

Some of our clients who have already seen a traditional nutritionist tell us that they have only achieved marginal weight loss or that it has taken (too) long. In some cases, the overly general (and mostly already familiar) advice is of little help, or people get lost in the plethora of options.

Metabolic Balance - A customized approach

Metabolic Balance is fundamentally different from traditional nutritional counseling because it is based on individual adaptation.

  1. Comprehensive Diagnosis:
    The Metabolic Balance process begins with a detailed blood test and comprehensive medical history. Based on your blood work and health history (including existing conditions such as lactose intolerance, gluten intolerance, thyroid problems, etc.), an individualized nutrition plan is created that is tailored to your unique metabolism.
  2. Customized nutrition:
    Your personalized nutrition plan takes into account not only your individual needs, but also your personal preferences. This means that the foods you are encouraged to eat will match your tastes.
  3. Healthy food choices:
    Metabolic Balance is based on whole foods only, so there are no "light" products or convenience foods. You do not need to take any supplements (weight loss shakes or similar "powders"). Your meal plan includes a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, protein and the "right" carbohydrates. This promotes a balanced and healthy diet.
  4. Holistic approach:
    Metabolic Balance is not a traditional diet, but a holistic metabolic program. It addresses not only nutrition, but also other lifestyle factors to promote sustainable weight management and overall wellness.
  5. Structure and Discipline:
    Metabolic Balance's clear guidelines and firm framework make it easier for many people to stay on track with their nutritional goals.
  6. Support and guidance:
    Throughout the Metabolic Balance program, you will receive regular support and guidance from your personal coach. This support is important to help you achieve your goals.

Conclusion: Traditional Nutritionist or Metabolic Balance?

Andrea Obst Avatar
...habe es geschafft 12 kg zu verlieren, bin glücklich wieder in die alten Kleider zu passen... kann es nur empfehlen, natürlich braucht es etwas Disziplin...aber es lohnt sich.... und wenn die ersten Kilos weg sind, kommt man in einen Rausch und es fällt einem sehr leicht, die Diät einzuhalten....

The decision between Metabolic Balance and a traditional nutritionist depends on your personal goals and needs.

Here are some considerations:

  • If you want to lose weight and want a personalized nutrition plan that takes into account your unique metabolism, we believe Metabolic Balance is the better choice.
  • If you are more interested in general healthy eating advice ("Am I doing everything right?") or have very specific questions (e.g., about nutrition after gastric bypass surgery or histamine intolerance), a traditional nutritionist can help you.
  • It is not always possible to say clearly and unambiguously what is best for you. A clarifying consultation often helps.

Ms. Gehrig also offers vegan nutrition counseling and plans.

In any case, it is important to work with qualified professionals and to focus on your individual needs and goals.

A healthy diet and lifestyle are invaluable.
