“He that takes medicine and neglects diet wastes the skills of the physician.”
– Chinese proverb
Medical Nutrition Therapy, often abbreviated as MNT, is an evidence-based medical approach to treating certain chronic conditions through the use of an individually-tailored nutrition plan. This nutrition plan is ordered and approved by a primary care physician and implemented by a Registered Dietitian.
Follow up visits may include habit modification, food diary analysis, menu planning, recipe modifications, shopping education, work-out advice, as well as guidance for dining out and eating at work or on vacation.
Initial Nutrition visits are 60 minutes; follow up visits are 30 minutes.
Grocery Store Tours
Many of my patients have requested, and greatly benefited from, a 60 minute private tour of their local grocery store. Learn which aisles contain the healthiest foods and which ones you can do without, what information on labels should be checked and considered, and what are proper portion sizes.
Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA)
This is a fast, consistent, accurate, non-invasive and easy to use way of measuring your body composition, and we are one of the few nutritionists in this area to offer it. More than simple weight or body fat percent levels provided by ordinary scales or calipers, body composition analyzer/scales provide detailed body composition analysis – weight, impedance, body fat percentage, body mass index (BMI), fat mass, fat-free mass and more. This service includes body composition analysis, interpretation, and a printout of your results.
