Registered Novant Health dietitian Carolina Garrison specializes in weight management and wants to help patients navigate a healthier lifestyle that lasts longer than any new fad or trend.

“I help people make healthy lifestyle changes, and working with a dietitian really kind of digs into the nutrition and a lot of the misconceptions of common nutrition practices out there to help patients lead and live a healthier and more sustainable, happier lifestyle,” Garrison told Patch.

That goal doesn’t always come easy, but that’s what many fad diets and weight loss trends promise.

“Those diets are set up for, for patients to fail on, none of them are meant to be long term successful ways of living. So, you know, a lot of a lot of patients I get are very, very discouraged,” Garrison explained.

One of the things that frustrates Garrison is the common misconception that a severe calorie deficit is the answer.
