4 Ways to Help Clients Struggling with Weight Loss
Low-Calorie Bowl Meals
One of the easiest ways to help your weight loss is to cut portion sizes in half. In fact, some enjoy each meal, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner, in a bowl, which is also great when you’re constantly on the go. Check out these low-calories bowl recipes that are both delicious and nutritious.
Try Diabetic Recipes
Even if your client isn’t diabetic it’s always important to keep various foods and especially foods high in sugar in moderation.
All Recipes.com has a great section dedicated to diabetic-friendly meals perfect for even the pickiest of eaters, and this page on Healthline will guide you through what ingredients and nutrients to look for, such as foods high in fiber, which can slow down the body’s absorption of sugar.
Go Vegan for a Week
Veganism is more than a trend nowadays – it’s a lifestyle. Yet it is very difficult for many to transition to a diet free of any foods that originate from an animal, including meats, eggs, dairy products, Vegans enjoy diets filled with fruits and vegetables, whole grains and other clean foods that provide them with much-needed protein, fat, and fiber. One of our favorite vegan meals is tacos, as they can be prepared with corn flour tortillas, falafel, tomatoes beans and lots of greens and yummy sauces and salsas!

Limit caffeine and sugary beverages and desserts
If your client has had coffee every morning for as long as they can remember, it may be difficult to have them transition to a healthier alternative like tea. et as much as we all enjoy the taste of freshly brewed coffee in the morning, the daily caffeine intake plus extras like dairy milk and added sugars take a toll on our health and waistline. The same thing goes for things your client may request, like comfort foods such as packaged donuts or cakes, and sugary drinks like soda or juice. Try alternatives like flavored sparkling water, and the next time you go grocery shopping, avoid getting packaged desserts and plan to bake or stick to one dessert per week that you can enjoy together. This will help you both avoid snacking on sugary desserts throughout the day.
