According to Hailey, her client didn't have to "cut out alcohol and miss out on her best friend's bachelor party." Instead, "she enjoyed one to two finer cocktails switched to a lower calorie lower sugar option," she said. While still tracking her nutrition progress, she felt confident. She didn't feel like she deprived herself and she didn't feel guilty."

Educate Yourself on Nutrition


"Did she obsessively track calories on MyFitnessPal? Nope. She tracked when she could so she could establish awareness around what she's eating to learn more about calorie density and different foods, but also understand her snacking was intentional and unintentional," Hailey continues.

Eat in a "Moderate Calorie Deficit"

Counting calories, different food with written quantity of calories, diet concept.

Finally, her clients didn't starve herself. "She focused on a moderate calorie deficit, not subtracting from her diet, but adding in foods like protein and high fiber, carbs and fruit," she says. 

Choose Weight Loss Programs "Tailored to You"


"The weight loss industry has created a stigma around weight loss," Hailey concludes. "As a dietician, there is nothing wrong with wanting to lose weight, as long as you have a healthy intention, are seeking programs that are tailored to you, and that will improve your relationship with your food and your body."
