Nutrition Q & A

What is nutrition counseling?

Nutrition counseling is an individualized program designed to identify the foods that are right for your body so you can reach your weight-loss and performance goals. Nutrition counseling is different from standard “dieting” because it teaches you an approach to food that you’ll adopt for the rest of your life. Also, unlike most diets, you don’t have to do it alone; you have a Lifestyle Rejuvenation Medical Group coach to help you.

What can I use nutrition counseling for?

Your body’s trillions of cells need the right kind of fuel to perform their jobs and keep you feeling and looking vital, alert, and healthy. With so many choices and so many diets available, you may feel overwhelmed by conflicting information or by disappointing results. Nutrition counseling helps you find the right kinds of foods so that you can reap benefits such as:

  • Permanent weight loss
  • More energy
  • Better sleep
  • Less inflammation and pain
  • Quick recovery from sports
  • Stronger muscles and bones

Losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight improves chronic conditions such as sleep apnea, diabetes, and arthritis.

What kind of food can I eat on my nutrition program?

At Lifestyle Rejuvenation Medical Group, the expert team takes a holistic approach to health, which includes emphasizing whole, fresh, natural foods. You learn how to avoid foods that have no nutritional value and love the foods that feed your cells. Some foods your body needs to thrive include:

  • High-quality fats
  • Fresh meat, poultry, and fish
  • Fresh vegetables
  • Fresh low-glycemic whole fruits (i.e., berries)
  • Limited starches

Some things to avoid are:

  • Fruit juices
  • Sodas
  • Sugar
  • Corn syrup
  • Trans fats
  • Processed meats
  • Other processed foods 

Your nutrition coach also works to identify any food allergies you may have that cause inflammation and weight gain. They may administer blood tests and ask you to keep a food diary to identify food sensitivities. Finally, your coach chooses the right high-quality supplements to make up for deficiencies and to optimize function.

What happens in nutrition counseling?

After your initial consultation, your coach designs a plan that matches your nutritional and lifestyle needs. You then meet with your coach regularly to monitor your progress and make adjustments to your plan, if needed. Once you reach your goals, your coach helps you make and stick with a long-term maintenance plan.
