Individual Nutrition Counselling
Achieve better health and fitness through nutrition counseling
The goal of nutrition counseling is to help you achieve a healthier body, attitude, and lifestyle. Elizabeth provides personalized diet, nutrition, and fitness plans that address your own unique needs and way of life. No matter your age, condition, or lifestyle, I will help you make positive changes to your life.
I can help you manage or improve many health concerns, but among the most commonly treated are:
- High cholesterol
- High blood pressure
- Weight management
- Vegetarian diet needs
- Prenatal and Postnatal nutrition
- Pediatric nutrition
- Gastrointestinal issues, such as acid reflux, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, and others
- Proper nutrition to improve generally poor health
You will be treated with professionalism and consideration at each appointment, and I will guide you to your goals through counseling, customized meal plans, nutritional education and recommendations, and referrals to other services you may need.
What can I expect from my first visit?
When you visit my office for the first time, I will perform an initial assessment that considers the following factors:
- Medical history
- Eating habits
- Medical conditions
- Personal food preferences
During the assessment, you and I will work together to determine the best methods for attaining lifestyle improvements that are appropriate for you, given your condition, goals, and routine. This comprehensive assessment will include an evaluation of your current dietary regimen. I will tell you what you are already doing right, and suggest improvements. I will also provide effective advice on meal planning, behavior modification, and referrals to other healthcare providers for a variety of treatments.
Follow-up counseling sessions are essential in order to evaluate the progress you make toward your goals. I am eager to help you achieve increased health and happiness by helping you eliminate unhealthy dietary habits and replace them with healthy new habits. During these supportive counseling sessions, I will advise you on how to make informed choices regarding:
- Grocery shopping
- Reading ingredient and nutrition labels
- Eating at restaurants
- Identifying proper portion sizes
- Healthy snacking
- Preparing nutritious but tasty meals
You may require several follow-up visits in order to truly instill and maintain healthy lifestyle habits. For this reason, I offer packages for my Toronto-area clients that include several follow-up counseling sessions. These packages prove cost-effective and save you money in comparison to paying for individual visits. Typically, the greater the number of visits you choose, the lower the cost per visit will be. I will support, motivate, and guide you every step of the way to achieving and maintaining a healthy, fit, active, and happy lifestyle.
