Four of the top ten causes of death in the United States are associated with diets that are too high in calories, saturated fat, or too low in dietary fiber. Nutrition counseling can reduce illness, productivity losses and prevent premature death through weight management and a healthy dietary regime.
Anxiety, depression and negative body image can have an impact on your eating habits and nutrition. In addition, nutrition can add to depression and anxiety by increasing fatigue, lowering energy levels, reducing your ability to enjoy life and affecting your mood. Fluctuations in anxiety may, in some cases, be worsened by poor nutritional habits. A proper nutritional assessment by a registered dietitian can help you determine if you are following appropriate nutritional guidelines.
Nutrition counseling can provide you with a lifetime strategy for healthful eating. Your nutritional assessment will include an individualized eating plan that is tailored to your specific needs and goals. In addition, a registered dietitian will review your current nutritional status in a complete dietary report that includes the percentages you consume of carbohydrates, protein, fats, minerals and vitamins for weight management and nutritional health. BMI (Body Mass Index), IBW (Ideal Body Weight), and exercise habits will be analyzed and suggestions will be provided. Follow-up sessions will monitor progress and enable revisions that are compatible for a lifetime, lifestyle choice.
