Your diet is without a doubt the single most important aspect of your health. You need good eating habits in place to reduce the effects of illness and achieve your best Fully Functional® life.
For some this means making a few minor adjustments, such as identifying food sensitivities or allergies. But for others, this can mean a complete diet overhaul. Sometimes these overhauls come with habit restructuring and a full pantry purge.
Our nutrition planning helps when the changes you need to make seem too overwhelming to do on your own.
Our health coaches will even help you break sugar addiction. Breaking sugar addiction can be very uncomfortable because you may go through withdrawals, similar to a drug withdrawal. Fortunately, we have many tried-and-true techniques for helping with this detox process.
The bottom line is our nutrition planning eases you into a new, healthier way of life no matter where you are today. The point of our nutrition planning is to make it easy, comfortable, and ultimately set you up for success.
So many diets fail because they are too strict, too confusing, or don’t have the support necessary for you to be successful – you’ll find none of that here. Living a Fully Functional® life means enjoying everyday to the fullest – and that includes enjoying what you eat.
Personalized Nutrition Planning That Fits Your Life
Our nutrition plans are more than just a few ideas and recipes. We provide you with doctor-prescribed nutrition planning that takes into account your personal needs and health concerns.
With every nutrition plan we consider the following:
- Your personal health goals
- Your current medical conditions or symptoms
- Ways to reduce inflammation
- Ways to support natural detox pathways
- Breaking sugar addiction
- Promoting healthy weight loss (if needed)
- Increasing insulin sensitivity
But it’s not just the medical aspects we take into consideration. When we develop your nutrition plan, we also consider your personal preferences, time, and budget. We take into account:
- Your food sensitivities or allergies
- Your appetite
- Your personal food preferences
- The time you have for cooking
- Your cooking experience
- Your budget
- Your relationship with food
- Your family situation
How is Nutrition Planning Different From Health Coaching?
In our office, nutrition planning is available through our health coaches as extra support. Similar to every other service and therapy in our office, these are done under the supervision and direction of Dr. Scott and Dr. Ellen. Nutrition planning differs from our general health coaching because we give you extra guidance in:
- Setting intentions
- Aligning goals
- Recipe suggestions
- Shopping list creation
- Pantry clean-out ideas
- Dining out strategies
- Reducing temptations
… and of course, we are available to answer your questions and provide additional support wherever needed.
