INITIAL NUTRITION ASSESSMENT
Let's get to know each other!
In this initial nutrition counseling session, you and your dietitian will begin developing a trusted relationship so that each feels comfortable enough to begin the process of reaching your nutrition goals. We will discuss your current food preferences, food allergies and/or intolerances (if any), medical conditions, physical activity, and develop a feel of your day to day life. We will also review potential barriers to your nutrition success and create realistic and approachable solutions to help you overcome them. This is not about putting you on a diet or restricting your intake of certain foods or nutrients, but rather working as a team to uncover your specific goals and creating a plan for you to reach them.
FOLLOW-UP NUTRITION SESSION
Continued Support for Your Goal and Plan
In order to make effective and sustainable habit changes, follow-up sessions with your dietitian are so important. This is the time when you can express what is going well for you and what might be going not so well. Your dietitian will use this time to hear you reflect and make tailored recommendations for you based on your results and feedback. We want nothing more than for you to reach your specific nutrition, health, and/or fitness goals. Consistent efforts and follow-up are keys to reaching those goals.
Because grocery shopping shouldn't be complicated
Have you ever walked into a grocery store and immediately felt overwhelmed? How do you find a whole grain cereal? How do you know if the avocado is ripe enough? How do you know which dairy product to choose? It is easy to get bogged down in the aisles of product after product. To help combat this fear and encourage you to have a pleasant grocery shopping experience, our dietitians would be happy to meet you at the supermarket and guide you through each section of the grocery store, offering information and suggestions for options that appeal to you. During your tour, we will also give you recommendations for easy meals that you can bring together for you and/or your family.
