I'm facing problem with weight loss and on treatment for hypothyroidism.. I had consulted a dietician in a reputed clinic a few months ago... It's a leading multi speciality clinic..one dietician was available and I took the appointment.. I had requested for an experienced dietician but I got a junior one.. the consultation fee was a pretty hefty amount which I paid up .. I explained my schedule and medical history and health issues etc and requested for a weight loss solution.. Was quite surprised as she was in such a hurry to be done with the appointment..and just hurriedly noted down whatever I told her....I asked few questions, and her answered were quite short and abrupt I myself felt foolish asking..She concluded the checkup in 15 mins and rushed off to her next appointment..she said she would provide the diet charts during the next few days,. So I walked by the clinic and got the chart from her,..was surprised to find that it's a cut-copy- paste kind of template maybe downloaded from Internet with a standard food chart provided...edited and printout taken..no food options provided..I.e breakfast is x quantity of ABC food item or y quantity of BCD food item etc..just one fixed template,. I mean is it possible that a person will eat exact same food item everyday?wont menu change day to day? She didn't really clarify much queries during the appointment and a follow up checkup would mean paying a hefty amount again.. So I followed the plan as much as possible.. But I haven't lost any weight..not a single kilo gram.. Why am I sharing this? Because I'm just venting out the fact that in our eagerness towards weight loss, we shouldn't just rush to any weight loss clinic..should carefully research and get reviews about the clinic or nutritionist whom you want to consult..else you will end up wasting valuable time, money and going in wrong direction.. Anyone faced similar experiences with weight loss consultations? Am I expecting too much from a professional and should I make my own weight loss plan? Moderators: kindly excuse me if you that my post is irrelevant to this forum..you could move to appropriate forum if so.. I was in tears yesterday when I realised that I've not lost a single kilo in past one year..
