Initial Nutrition Assessment
This is for those people who want to focus on individual nutrition issues with a Registered Dietitian. This assessment will include dietary, lifestyle and medical questions that will be important in guiding personal nutrition recommendations. It also includes a review of your eating and physical activity log to evaluate your current habits and a discussion on where some changes could be made to meet your health goals.
Energy Budgeting Follow-Up Consultation
This follow-up consultation is for those clients who have completed an initial assessment. In this session you will work with a Registered Dietitian to develop an energy budget to meet your current energy needs for health and performance.

Meal Planning Follow-Up Consultation

Follow-Up Nutrition Consultations
Do you have questions about dietary strategies for specific health conditions, nutrition supplements, or foods that you see in the grocery store? These sessions are encouraged for current clients who have completed a nutrition assessment as a follow-up to provide on-going expert advice on individualized dietary strategies, meal planning, label reading, and/or food preparation skills.
Body Composition Analysis
A body composition test measures your unique body composition and helps us to determine your personal caloric requirements. An accurate assessment of your body composition helps you and your Dietitian, to better plan and evaluate your nutrition programs. This body composition test is done with the latest in multi-frequency bioelectrical impedance analysis using the InBody570. The extreme accuracy of this analysis makes it possible for the InBody570 to monitor the slightest compositional changes during the process of weight loss/gain.
You will record your food and fluid intake for 3 days (2 weekdays and 1 weekend day) on the photo-based web tool called KEENOA. Your food log will be analyzed and a nutrition summary will provided to you. We will use this analysis to better understand what you are doing well and where you could integrate some changes into your daily meals and snacks.
The comprehensive assessment includes TWO body composition analyses, an initial nutrition assessment, a dietary analysis on KEENOA, energy budgeting and meal planning sessions AND two 30 minute nutrition counseling sessions with a Registered Dietitian.
