Diet counselling

Hello there,
this is my first post in the forum. Hope you are doing well in this beautiful country.


To make it short, my physician convinced me to see a food counselor. He believes that I can fight my high blood pressure by a good behavior in the kitchen.


Given that I am based in Zurich town, does anybody know a place where I can go with my doctor's prescription.


Thanks a lot in advance.


Cheers all-around.

Re: Diet counselling

Hi David,
You can try these doctors, usually not very expensive:

You can try at Zürich UniSpital, they have an Insitute and lot's of doctors there:

Re: Diet counselling

I was also told this summer that to cope with high blood pressure I could 'lose 10kg or grow 5cm'... (I think the doc had used that line before...)

I'm well on my way to being -10kg....very low carbs and no sugar (which, sadly means virtually no pre-prepared food.. seriously.. have you seen how much sugar there is in just, say, a can of beans !)... simple.. effective... not easy.. but works

p.s. and of course you should see a professional !

Good for you! I'm on the same, but with high fat. Lost 10kg in 5 weeks. The first couple of weeks was hard, but now it's ok. I think part of it is realising the amount of crap you graze on during the day!

Good effort!

My diet is pretty good, i don't much like sugar, cakes, chocolate, ice cream etc, nor do i really like pasta, bread or fries or rice or potatoes.. So I should be lucky that I just like good old meat, fish and veg.
My downfall is wine, it tastes good and it's everywhere, dammit.

I'd like to drop 5kg but even with a pretty good diet and high intensity training 5 times per week, it just won't budge.

Surely lots of fitness training 'could' put on muscle so your weight may not change and may actually go up?

Wouldn't it be better to measure the excess fat around your waist and see whether that changes?

Yeah obviously I skipped details I have dropped a lot of fat and gained a lot of muscle, I've dropped quite a few waist inches and grown across the shoulders etc etc. I know the scale is not everything.

But approaching middle age seems to direct every remaining bit of fat to the belly. Sure if i stand up straight in good light i can pop out the six pack but there's still a good chunk there I'd like to shift.

I like my food and wine too much, lack discipline.. I guess I train to eat and not the other way around.

Everything heads south as you get older! Losing it gets harder. (though I'm sure you know that).
