Often individuals assume that seeing a Nutritionist is going into an office and walking out with this magical meal plan that will mystically make them reach their goals, I suspect this perception comes from all the diet trends.
In reality, very few people need or should use a meal plan, and when they are needed they need to be carefully formulated based on the individual’s unique needs. Generic meal plans which can be found everywhere may be poorly constructed, lack the individual's unique needs, may lead to nutritional and health imbalances, as well as turn people off from using nutrition to help them reach their goals. Clearly I am not a fan of generic meal plans other than being used as an educational tool when provided by a nutritionist or dietician (someone with formal nutritional education).
What meal plans are great for?
