It is easy to feel alone when you are unhappy with your body or the way your body feels. It is also easy to feel like you are the only one who just can’t shed the pounds. Our bodies are complex and unique. This is why a “one size fits all” approach doesn’t usually work. Having a program that is created specifically for you makes all the difference in the world. Learning to eat a healthy diet of real food can certainly help you drop weight, but this is not the only reason to work with a Functional Nutritionist. Along with weight loss, decreasing inflammation, stabilizing blood sugar, lowering blood pressure, and keeping auto-immune disease at bay are just a few welcome side effects of making dietary changes.
During a visit with our Functional Nutrition Assistant, you will receive a custom program designed especially for you. We will work with you to learn who you are, what your food likes and dislikes are, what programs you have tried in the past, what your schedule is like, if you have any food intolerances or allergies, and much more. From there we will create a custom plan to help you achieve your desired results. You will be provided with resources to help you with meal planning and grocery lists to get you through each month. After each visit you will know how much water to drink, food substitutions you may want to incorporate, how to successfully dine out, and what to do if you get off track.
If weight loss is your goal, we will record your weight and take body measurements at each visit. We will also monitor your “body age” along the way. All of this will help us track the changes your body will be making. We will monitor the progress you have made from month to month and celebrate your results!
Accountability is key! We use a HIPAA compliant app to stay in touch. Each day, you will spend about 30 seconds per meal to log in your food choices. This will allow us to see what you are eating, help you troubleshoot, make suggestions, encourage, and celebrate with you! This accountability can be vital to your success.
We have custom programs for people in all stages and walks of life! If you are looking to lose 5 pounds or 200 pounds, have an auto-immune disease, are looking to decrease inflammation or manage a new food intolerance, or even just want to learn to live a healthier life, we can help! These can be daunting challenges to face, but you’ll never be alone on this journey, we will walk with you every step of the way.
