When it comes to making a health-related lifestyle change, most individuals decide to start with increasing exercise or changing their nutrition habits but rarely do they actively engage in both. Research, alongside personal stories from our most successful clients, shows the importance of incorporating both proper exercise and healthy eating habits to achieve long-lasting success.
Taking charge of your health is about so much more than losing weight and looking good. A healthy diet and regular exercise affect every area of your life. Your choice to become a healthier version of yourself not only affects your waistline, but also your sleep, mood, confidence, ability to concentrate, stress levels, and many other areas.
Our Nutrition Philosophy
“Diet” is a dirty word. You’re probably familiar with this scenario: A person decides they’re interested in losing weight. They start the newest, trendy diet that tells you to avoid gluten or dairy or all things delicious and wonderful. Of course, they see results on such a strict diet. But what happens when they stop dieting and start eating normally again? All that weight comes right back.
At Studio Element, our registered dietitian nutritionists don’t believe in restrictive dieting. Instead, we preach an “all foods fit” philosophy. The most beneficial thing you can do for your health is find a way to make healthy eating work for you for the rest of your life, not just for a few months. Want to enjoy a cookie or a glass of wine? We’ll help you find a way to fit those treats into your day. Our goal is to teach you how to eat healthy in a way that works for you.
