A dietician is an educated person who has studied the pros and cons of different food groups on the body and tells you the time to consume them for better and complete digestion.
Most of us know that eating breakfast is essential and skipping meals makes us fat as the metabolism of the body decreases due to it. Slow metabolism thus decreases the capacity of your body to digest food and absorb nurititon to use energy for your daily activities. Thus storing calories in the form of fat and making you obese.
A dietician gives you a complete diet which is designed to help your body lose weight and speed up your metabolism so that you lose weight even when you are sitting or resting. A dietician will divide your daily consumption of food in a way that you consume maximum during the morning and afternoon and less during the night. Eating less at night is healthy because since we are not using much energy and moving less, it becomes easier for our body to digest less food.
Therefore, if you are interested to lose weight and learn on healthy ways on living your life then it is necessary that you consult a dietician and start taking healthy food.
