Diet and lifestyle - Which Professionals to entrust Your Health to?

    The collective need to fall within certain patterns and the equally widespread tendency to emulate the stereotypes of beauty-thinness proposed (and imposed) by the media, have meant that the term diet, from the Greek dìaita (= regime, style, standard of living ) as an indicator of correct, healthy and balanced nutrition, would definitively become synonymous with weight loss and weight loss.
    Diet and lifestyle - Which Professionals to entrust Your Health to?In reality, as can be deduced from the translation quoted above, the term diet has a rather complex meaning that encompasses the quality, quantity, manner, organization and management of human nutrition. Diet means eating style and is directly related to the lifestyle, therefore to the social level and, why not, to the ethnic, family and individual cultural level. Only by reflecting on the real breadth of the term is it possible to understand how misunderstanding it can be to associate simple weight loss with it.
    WE ALL follow a diet but FEW do it correctly and in a balanced way; in this regard it is appropriate to highlight an obviousness which, even if it seems to be so, often manifests itself as a paradox. Using a simple metaphor, the health of a subject could be compared to a building, whose foundations are represented by the diet and the external walls by the lifestyle; although these components may appear as two distinct structures, their relationship is absolutely essential. It follows that: if the balance between diet and lifestyle were to fail, the consequences would be the overall health!
    To prevent this from happening, it is essential that the community is aware of its habits and that it receives adequate professional health care. Awareness is undoubtedly the first big step towards prevention and maintenance of health, however, in some circumstances external intervention by trained and qualified professionals is required. It can be deduced that the professional service provided by the aforementioned figures, legally placed and regulated (at least in theory), is useful / indispensable for improving the health of the subjects in question.






    But ... if not so?


    Currently, the pathology that has the greatest impact on the health of citizens of industrialized countries is overweight; it correlates with multiple metabolic dysfunctions and aggravates joint discomfort, dramatically raising the costs of public health. In this specific case, the professionals who intervene in the correction of diet and lifestyle have the function of fighting the onset and maintenance of overweight, promoting its recovery and reducing health costs, but how?

    1. Promoting lifestyle improvement through increasing overall physical activity level and physical activity education (desirable)
    2. Correcting and reorganizing the diets of these subjects

    In theory, the reasoning is flawless, but in practice all of this happens only partially and the discrepancy between the expected and the actual result is caused by:

    1. Qualification for the professional development of at least weird figures in both the aforementioned areas
    2. Heterogeneity in the professional training of technicians / doctors in the national field

    At this point, the question arises: what does poor management / training of professionals have to do with the misunderstanding between diet and weight loss or weight loss? Simple!


    FIGHTING OVERWEIGHT THROUGH THE CORRECTION OF DIET AND LIFESTYLE IS FUNDAMENTAL IN PREVENTING METABOLIC AND ARTICULAR COMPLICATIONS AND IMPROVING THE COLLECTIVE HEALTH ... '' APPLICATION OF NON-HEALTHY PRINCIPLES AND EVEN HARMFUL FOR THE SUBJECTS, MAY LEAD TO:

    • THE FAILURE OUTCOME OF THE THERAPY ITSELF AND CONSEQUENT RECOVERY OF THE INITIATIVE PATHOLOGICAL STATE, FAVORING ITS CHRONICIZATION
    • SIGNIFICANT EMOTIONAL DISCOMFORT / DEMOTIVATION THAT NEGATIVELY AFFECTS THE COMPLIANCE TO FOLLOWING THERAPIES
    • IN PATIENTS, TREND TO THE COGNITION OF UNFOUNDED AND OFTEN COUNTERPRODUCTIVE PRECONCEPTS
    • ANY SIDE EFFECTS / UNDESIRABLE RELATED TO THE PERFORMANCE OF THE IMPROPER THERAPY.

    Then a:
    Diet + lifestyle = good health



    Pathology + correct therapy = improvement of health


    But also...
    Pathology + incorrect therapy = deterioration of health!


    While waiting for the legal situation to improve and before relying on any technician / doctor, our kind readers are advised to make sure that he has an ENABLING and RELEVANT DEGREE:


    Personally (personal / professional opinion) ADVICE:
