At the Nutritional Wellness Center, we like to say that we take nutritional counseling to the next level. These consultative services are indeed a cornerstone of improving health through nutrition and lifestyle changes.
The power of nutritional coaching (that works!)
You may be familiar with the “zillions” of specialized or faddish diets that are out there, with the cleanses and detoxification programs that promise to transform our bodies and lives. Naturally, with so many products and programs to choose from competing for our attention and dollars, it cannot be apparent to know what to eat! Many people may select a specific program, follow it to a “t,” and then get disappointed when they don’t lose as much weight as they’d like to or when the weight budges ever so slowly.
Worse yet, there is nothing more deflating to the ego than to end up heavier than before the diet started, especially if they followed the said program perfectly. And remember that losing weight is only half the battle. Often, we encounter people who have lost weight, but they found it near impossible to maintain that weight loss. They gain everything back – and then some! What gives?
These and other clients may suffer from various digestive issues, ranging from heartburn and Irritable Bowel to Crohn’s and Colitis. These problems add another layer of both challenges and opportunities for improvement to those tasked with elevating health and well-being through nutrition. Our nutritional coaching services are designed to tackle stubborn pudge, yo-yo dieting, sluggish metabolism, plateauing weight loss, and poor digestion.
Nutritional Wellness Center Coaching: A recipe for health
Our sessions are designed to fit in easily with your busy schedule and active lifestyle. You can complete these sessions from the comfort and convenience of home! While the whole program is made up of a dozen sessions, we recommend that first-timers start with a minimum of six sessions. Though, in everything we do, our coaches account for the unique needs and characteristics that make up each client. You are one of a kind. So, there are no two nutritional plans that are exactly alike. We work closely with our patients to educate them on the “basics” of nutrition and physiology. Then, we work with you to learn the best approach to fueling your body to achieve an improved quality of life, health status, and those goals that are specific to you.
It is not sufficient for us to get to that optimal state of health, only to fail to equip you with the necessary tools to keep you healthy. So, our program spans many different, proven components that make it easy to maintain your weight loss and health status, including:
- A protein-rich breakfast
- A diet that is mindful of sugar content in foods and drinks.
- Food choices that contain healthy fats
- Monitoring of water consumption
- Blood sugar management tools
- Approaches to “gluten-free the healthy way.”
- Grocery shopping tips
- How to understand the nutritional labels on products
- Modifications to support good digestion and bone health.
- Techniques to manage stress and anxiety
- Body care that is free of toxins
- How to maximize your health potential!
During your appointment, we work with you to establish clear, realistic goals. We also discuss the obstacles that stand in the way of your reaching those goals. These barriers might include specific food cravings or schedules that make it too easy to get from prepackaged calorie bombs that are easy to cook but have little nutritional value. If we don’t address those barriers from the get-go, you may see improvement plateau later or find yourself back on the hamster wheel and unable to maintain healthy habits, lifestyle, and weight.
By educating you on the nutritional basics and your body’s response to what you feed it, you can better understand “why” we may recommend particular strategies to address your specific needs. For instance, we’ve made these strategies very easy to follow by suggesting yummy alternatives to go-to foods that satiate our cravings for sugars and salt. If you fall off the healthy track, we also give you the tools to get right back in the game again. So, you don’t get discouraged, and any gains that you have made aren’t lost. Plans that fit all aspects of your life work seamlessly to accelerate your health, energy, weight loss goals – and to, simply put, get you feeling better!
There is no time like the present to connect with one of our skilled coaches today. We can’t wait to meet you and to introduce you to our approach to Nutritional Coaching, which gets results and works with (not against) your schedule and life.
