Q. Why is your nutrition-counseling program different from most doctors, personal trainers, commercial weight loss programs or other nutritionists?
- We use proprietary software and a metabolic analyzer to assess a clients metabolic needs and develop a custom sliding scale program based on your metabolic needs, activity level, lean body mass , food preferences…etc.
- We do not sell or push products or medications. We specialize in teaching clients how to work with different foods and the science behind nutrition.
- We have done it so long and with so many physicians and patients nationwide, we know what clients are looking for and how to relate to many different individuals.
No food weighing, No counting points, No packaged foods or protein bars!
We are experienced nutritionists with college degrees and advanced degrees in nutrition with hospital experience, not just a certification from any organization or on the internet. We have many years of counseling experience.
- We individualize the program based on your specific medical & nutritional needs. The nutritional program is based on your current
- Eating habits
- Blood labs
- Activity level
- Lifestyle & Preferences
- We Get Specific – No diet sheets or computerized meal plans!!!!
Q. What information will I focus on?
You will not be so concerned with calories or weighing. We will teach you the digestion and absorption time of specific foods at home or in restaurants. We will teach you how to combine specific foods & snacks to decrease appetite, decrease fat synthesis, increase metabolism, increase energy and lose body fat. You will be provided with specific examples for your nutritional program and then asked to make substitutions later for variety – if you so desire. You will be taught a system of how to eat for the rest of your life. You will learn a little of the science behind the nutrition to empower you forever!
This is a lifestyle program; you will follow forever, not a diet!!!
Q. What if I have medical needs like cancer, diabetes, high cholesterol or blood pressure, IBS, digestion problems, chronic fatigue, menopause, pregnancy, sports nutrition, depression?
Again, each nutritional program is designed for the specific medical & nutritional needs of the individual.
Q. I am always hungry or tired now, or I am working out and not seeing results – will nutritional counseling help me?
By concentrating on the digestion and absorption time of foods, appetite, cravings, fat synthesis, irritability, and fatigue usually decrease. You will notice more energy, muscle gain, and overall sense of well-being. If you are exercising, you will have better workouts, and if you are not yet exercising, this may be the step to get you going.
By understanding the correct balance of protein, carbohydrate, fat and fiber you also will be at a much lower risk for chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease while losing body fat.
Q. How many nutritional counseling sessions does it take to see results and understand the program?
A typical client should immediately feel better in their first week. The complete program usually consists of 3 to 4 one – hour nutrition sessions, time permitting, to learn how to eat for the rest of your life. We usually meet once a week or every other week and this allows for the client to digest, absorb, AND APPLY the specific nutritional program to your busy lifestyle! We also have 6 and 8-week programs if necessary.
This is an uplifting experience, you will laugh and learn. We will change the way you view & understand food forever.
