I recently spoke with Shatabdi Basu, creator of the Savoir App and Concierge Dietitian, about the struggles of eating healthy in our real everyday lives, and how her app and new nutritionist service can help. But before I delve into that, let’s get real for second…
We all want to look and feel good, right? Really, when it all comes down to it – that’s what we are all striving for. That’s also why a lot of us don’t like to restrict our diets… feeling good sometimes involves indulging in a delicious meal! (It’s true.) But I am a firm believer in the idea that you can indulge within moderation and that delicious meals can be healthy, too. You just need to be mindful about all of the choices you make.
Go ahead 🙂
Thinking about going paleo but don’t know what to buy at the grocery store or what to eat when you’re at a restaurant? They can help.
Looking to loose a lot of weight, but terrified of the first step? This is the least scary way to get started.
Looking to maintain your weight and avoid slipping into bad habits before your wedding? They’ve got you.
Literally, they will check in with you to see what you ate that day – I tried it out this past week and I told my nutritionist that I was having a really stressful week. I woke up the next morning to an email with meal/snack ideas AND I ended the day with an email asking how I did and how I feel! She also reminded me that stress can cause inflammation, so I upped the amount of anti-inflammatory foods and spices this week. Boom! It really is like having someone in your corner rooting for your success. And no, they won’t judge you if you had some dessert or a few extra glasses of wine the night before… but they will help you create a meal plan for the next day so you can get back on track. Yes, I mean meal plans designed for you – no one size fits all here. Best of all, these people live right here in Chicago, so you can tell them where you’re going for lunch with a client and they can help you make the right decision. What?! Yup!
Honestly, I think what really makes this unique is that it will help you create practical habits that you can sustain throughout the rest of your life. This isn’t a 6 month fix and this certainly isn’t about counting calories like a lot of other dieting services. This is about getting to know your food and figuring what works for your body. If that sounds like a place you’ve always had trouble reaching, let them help! You can test it out for a whole week completely for free – what have you got to lose?
