10 Things Your Nutritionist Wishes You'd Stop Doing
Are You Guilty of These Nutrition ‘No-Nos’?

Because I have developed congestive heart failure, my cardiologist wants a daily weight. If I gain 3+ pounds overnight, it can stress my heart & put me back in the hospital with low oxygen. Bummer. Family history exasperated by my weight (284).
I totally disagree about not weighing yourself everyday. If I weighed myself every Sunday and put on 2 lbs, probably because of water weight, I would be devastated. But if I monitored my weight all through the week, I would know that it was temporary water weight, and would probably go down the following day.
Guilty of daily weigh in
I am happy to report I have lost 20 pounds.
I don't know what hummus is either.
#8, being a creature of habit, speaks to me today. I am "stuck" 10 lbs. from my goal. I lose a couple of lbs. then gain them again.
I need to get out of my comfort zone. I started walking 2-3 miles/day, 5 days/week a month ago but got sidetracked by our daughter's wedding 10 days ago. It's time to get back at it, and also back to the pool, which is open for limited hours and limited attendants because of Covid-19.
I've joined the 5% Fall Challenge today, and WILL break this plateau.
I don't get on the scale every day. Just once a week. It is discouraging every day.
Great advice! Just have to say though, when I had cancer I was sent to a registered dietician. She had never heard of hummus, when I explained to her what it was she said I should avoid "weird foreign food", and argued that there was no difference between chicken bullion cubes and real chicken stock. I am hoping my one RD contact was an anomaly and not an example of the profession.
Nice honest truths.
Great thank you for sharing!
I hate those fad diets. What a waste of time and energy
I only do two of these so I've improved! Thank you for the great article!
I don't have a nutritionist, but it's good information.
