WHAT IS NUTRITIONAL COUNSELING?
A nutritional consult typically begins with a one-hour evaluation to assess the patient and the patient’s diet. The nutritionist may also assess sleep patterns, physical activity, and other lifestyle factors. With this information, the nutritionist works with the patient (or client) to identify opportunities for change. This doesn’t always mean starting a diet. It could mean identifying one adjustment – such as giving up soda or adding more fish, nuts, and vegetables – that can have an impact on health and healing.
