SAN RAMON, Calif., Feb. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- There's no shortage of nutrition advice out in the world, all claiming to be the best. Fad diets come in and out of style, nutrition guidelines change, and Americans are left wondering what they should be consuming. Financial Education Benefits Center (FEBC), a membership benefits company specializing in health and financial wellness, reminds members that a healthy life leans on healthy eating habits. The company offers a benefit that gives members access to nutritionists to answer questions about nutrition for themselves and their families.

Each year, countless Americans resolve to eat better or lose weight, and they turn to diets to do so. However, diets often involve restrictions that overhaul eating habits and are thus difficult to maintain. They are intended to result in quick weight loss, but often inspire feelings of guilt when those strict rules are broken or bent. Plus, restricting food intake can lead to weight gain in the long run as the body learns to use fewer calories more efficiently and stores extra calories in fat for later.

"Diets come and go every year, and headlines touting advice often leave us with more questions than answers," said Jennifer Martinez, Manager at FEBC. "What should I eat? When should I eat? How much should I eat? When internet searches contradict each other, it might be time to turn to a professional for answers."

Instead of focusing on losing weight and picking up the latest diet, experts suggest focusing on health and its link to nutrition. Basic health guidelines recommend a well-rounded meal plan with several servings of fruits and vegetables every day, some protein, some whole grains, and dairy. However, nutrition is personal and specific recommendations or plans may be based on factors such as age, gender, physical activity, dietary restrictions, dietary preferences, or health goals.

When guidelines can vary from person to person, it can be hard to cover all bases when feeding a family. FEBC offers a benefit that gives any member access to board-certified nutritionists by email at any time. Additionally, members can use the benefit to get answers from other certified doctors about illnesses, behavioral health concerns, fitness, and more to support an overall healthy lifestyle.

"Health can be a moving target for some, but building healthy eating habits builds a strong foundation," said Martinez. "We hope that our members find this benefit useful in building healthy habits from the plate up."
