What should I expect?

What to expect prior to your consultation

  • You will complete a health history and nutrition questionnaire so your nutritionist gains a thorough understanding of your health challenges and goals.

What to expect during your initial consultation

  • Your nutritionist will explain how foods affect your health and well-being and why certain foods are important to include in your diet.
  • You will receive a personalized eating plan along with recipes and suggestions for meals, snacks and beverages.
  • Your nutritionist will work with you to set goals and develop practical ways for you to implement our real-food approach to eating.
