What Is Nutritional Counseling?

What Can I Expect From Nutritional Counseling?
During your nutritional counseling visit, our registered dietitian will review your medical history and talk with you about your health and wellness goals, current diet, activity level, and other aspects of your life. A comprehensive blood panel may be conducted to screen for underlying health concerns, such as diabetes, high cholesterol, or thyroid disorders. A body composition analysis may also be performed to determine body mass index or other measurements. After collecting data about your health, our dietitian will then prescribe a personalized meal plan and help you choose foods that fuel your body and mind. The overall goal of nutritional counseling is to ensure your body receives the nutrients it needs to maintain optimal health.
