I haven't been to a nutritionist, but I have been to a registered dietician (in Ontario, Canada dieticians are a regulated group,whereas anyone can call themselves a "nutritionist") who was very helpful. She wasn't trying to sell me anything (except her time) - no potions or powders and she understands how food works and how people have different cravings and how we all like different things. I don't know where you are, but if there are registered dieticians in your area, I would recommend one. They will have to do a food journal for a little while (don't tell any untruths!) and will look at it and help identify issues. For me, I wasn't eating enough protein at breakfast and the end result was that I would eat junk in the afternoon because I was HUNGRY! Now, I eat at least 14 grams of protein for breakfast and I don't generally want afternoon junk (but there are still those days....!!). She also noticed that I'm all about taste - I like lots of flavour, and I eat lots of different things and made some lower-calorie, higher nutrient suggestions. Your insurance company may cover a registered dietician if there is such a thing where you live (my insurance company covered the dietician but they won't cover a nutritionist - I'm guessing due to the registered status...like they won't cover a massage unless it's by a registered massage therapist, or physiotherapy unless the person is registered). Good luck....even if your insurance doesn't cover it, I think it's money well spent to get a new pair of eyes to look at your food intake and lead you in a better direction. Now, if only I did everything I was supposed to, I would be a size 12...alas I am not but I'm working on it again
