The goal of nutrition counseling is to provide you with medically sound nutrition information in a supportive, caring and professional environment. We will work together to customize a healthy eating plan, to complement your lifestyle, activity level, medical needs and dietary preferences. Collaboration with your physician and health care team may be necessary to ensure a consistent and comprehensive team approach.
By establishing realistic and achievable goals, you will be more motivated to develop a lifelong eating plan that will improve your health and quality of life. The focus is always on the enjoyable and positive aspects of healthy eating, as an integral component of a happy, healthy and productive lifestyle.
An initial comprehensive nutrition consultation typically takes 60-80 minutes. After a thorough nutrition evaluation and assessment, nutrition recommendations are individualized on the basis of dietary history, lifestyle, medical history, activity level and personal goals. An individually customized nutrition plan is generated.
A follow-up visit typically takes 30-40 minutes. It is designed to provide support and counseling to help you make and maintain the necessary dietary changes, as well as a focused approach to each of your specific nutrition and wellness goals.
