IS YOUR FAMILY LIKE THE RYAN FAMILY?
Mum and Dad lead very busy lives. They both have jobs with long commutes every day. The also have three children who are all in school with hectic after school activities. They wanted a family diet review so they could focus on weight loss while keeping the diet balanced.
After completion of a family questionnaire I visited the Ryan family at their home. My consultation was around the kitchen table with the parents and kids. I brought some snacks and made a smoothie with the families Nutribullet. We reviewed the family’s health history. We discussed their typical daily diet focusing on breakfast, lunch boxes, and portion sizes at dinner. I reviewed the food labels on the treats for sugar content.
Consultations like this are very interactive with lots of questions from the kids. I developed a family healthy eating plan that they can fit into their lives. We did a follow up a month later where they felt they had more energy for their busy days, more organised when shopping and preparing meals and were on track as a family focused on reducing carbohydrate in their diet and were on their way to achieving their weight loss target.
