What is Nutritional Counseling?
Nutritional counseling includes a nutritional evaluation, assessment and development of an appropriate daily eating plan that is designed around your specific needs (i.e. health concerns, disease states, weight control, allergies, religious beliefs, life-style and other factors).
Your first visit or consultation will involve a “get to know you” session that involves providing and gathering information. After that, a typical counseling session (approx. 45 minutes to 1 hour) includes development and/or modification of a nutritional plan, setting attainable goals, education for you and family members, a review of previous sessions, discussions about what might be new (i.e. medications, lab results, events), follow-ups and maintenance visits.
