Helping Clients Cope with Food. Part 4

Obviously, your advice must take lifestyle into consideration. Just as you would not overwhelm a beginning exerciser with advanced training techniques, you would also not pile interesting but intricate recipes on someone who is never at home to cook. Give those recipes to the client whose recreational activity occurs in the kitchen. Help the clients who have little control over meal preparation to get their partners involved, and help them exercise what control they do have effectively: making good choices in the cafeteria at work, learning to read labels on the breakfast cereal and so forth. Clients who make their meal choices at a deli or restaurant appreciate direction on tasty alternatives to high-fat or high-calorie favorites. Advice on fast-food restaurant choices is especially useful, since on any given day in the U.S. about 25 percent of the population patronizes a fast-food establishment.

When giving advice, be sensitive to the division of labor found in households. Occasionally, meal preparation is a source of contention, an onerous chore done with resentment. Sometimes it is a task shared by partners who both feel they do more than their “fair share.” Advice on efficiency and planning usually goes a long way in such cases, since it saves time for everyone.
