The initial consultation (1.5 – 2 hours) is a requirement for all new clients. This appointment is necessary to evaluate and assess your unique nutritional needs and to gather information on your current health status, health issues, risk factors for disease, lifestyle habits including sleeping patterns and stress levels, allergies, physical and emotional well-being, medical history, medications and nutrition supplement use. We will also discuss your diet history to learn your eating/meal schedule, your portion sizes and, of course, your food preferences. A body composition analysis will also be done to assist with determining your nutritional goals. I encourage clients to bring their current supplements, so we can organize and possibly reduce the amount taken and set up the right protocol.
Awareness, education and an understanding of the emotional connections and the effects our lifestyle habits have on our health is an important step in consciously working towards desired health goals.
You will then be provided with:
Nutrition Report This report will outline solutions and dietary changes necessary to help you achieve your goals. The report is a list of specific strategies and recommendations that will help improve your diet, your nutritional intake and your activity level.
Customized Meal Plan The Meal Plan outlines meal times, portion sizes, appropriate food combinations and meal suggestions for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks based on your unique biochemistry. Your Meal Plan is based on where you eat, i.e., home, restaurants, and take-out. Healthy recipes will also be provided.
After setting up an appointment, download and complete our Nutrition Profile Form [PDF] [Word]. Once you’ve completed the Nutrition Profile Form, simply return it via e-mail or bring it to your first appointment.
