A part of any wellness program for Laureldale residents should include nutrition counseling. Nutrition counseling analyzes the various health needs of a person in regards to exercise and diet. It is the job of a nutritional counselor to help their patients achieve health goals and teach ways in which to maintain these goals throughout life. Such teachings benefit a wide range of people and can even help those with particular disorders, like diabetes for example. During a typical assessment, a nutritional counselor will provide information on the patient’s current health status and provide ways in which overall health can be improved. Here are the benefits nutrition counseling can provide.

A nutritional counselor will likely recommend a fitness program. Because the counselor has inside knowledge about your current needs, a custom program will be designed and obtaining weight and fit goals are reached quicker.

A healthy lifestyle begins with proper nutrition. If you aren’t eating the right foods, you suffer low energy levels, get sick more often and find it difficult to maintain any type of exercise program. It is also a widely known fact that many diseases are caused by an unhealthy diet. You might feel you are maintaining a healthy diet, but a nutritional counselor may prove you wrong and make suggestions on what needs to be changed.

There is a fear that meeting with a nutritional counselor will lead to meals that consist solely of cottage cheese and lettuce. This is far from the truth. There is a wide variety of healthy foods out there that are nutritious as well as delicious.
