Great question! Yes. Follow up visits are a critical component of the dietary plan you create with your dietitian. While your initial visit is important for gathering information, building rapport, and establishing goals, it's the time during your follow up visits where you can actively take steps with your dietitian to make your goals a reality.
Each follow up visit offers the opportunity to check in with your dietitian, holding you accountable for the goals set at previous visits. It allows for you to ask questions, discuss barriers and setbacks, and celebrate successes. Like any other habit or lifestyle change, consistency is key. Your follow up visits will help develop your consistency in changes, thought processes, and behaviors that will ultimately lead you to your desired milestones of change.
At the end of each visit, together with your dietitian, you will schedule your next follow up or a series of follow up visits (Ex: Mondays at noon) that suit your plan and schedule best.
