I came for an acupuncture appointment, not a nutritionist visit. She spent nearly the entire consultation telling me to half the amount of food I eat regardless of how active I am, which is not sound advice. For example, I said I only had a cup of coffee with 2T oat milk creamer for breakfast for 35 calories. She said I should cut back to 1T of creamer for 17 calories. How will a mere 17 calories have an impact on weight loss?! And why is an acupuncture therapist advising me on food instead of the procedure I’m about to have? It was my first ever acupuncture appointment and I’m disappointed that I learned nothing on how it works, whether it can be effective in boosting metabolism after menopause for weight management, why she put the pins where she did and what I could expect after the procedure. I’m hopeful the procedure itself has some benefits but I would like a therapist to provide information and guidance.
