BANT Wellbeing Guidelines are evidenced-based guidelines providing information on nutrition and lifestyle measures when personalised advice is not possible. The guidelines are equally well suited as the starting point for use by Nutritional Therapists and healthcare professionals to further personalise the recommendations to their clients and patients.
In addition to a comprehensive review of the latest research, the BANT expert panel reviewed the current Eatwell Plate, which unfortunately is now out-dated, US Eating Guidelines and Harvard Eating Plate among other published guidelines, to design the newly published BANT Wellbeing Guidelines. The original versions of these guidelines were subject of a public consultation in September 2014. The consultation resulted in a wide spectrum of respondents from healthcare professionals and members of the general public. All feedback was carefully reviewed and further contributed to the development of BANT Wellbeing Guidelines.
BANT Wellbeing Guidelines start from the premise that everyone is different and while there is no set rule that fits, all these guidelines provide a basis for healthy lifestyle. BANT recommends that people visit a Registered Nutritional Therapist for more personalised recommendations to help them achieve their goals.
