Some people believe that nutritional advice is reserved for those who have food allergies or require a special diet due to a chronic medical condition. In reality, a dietitian can offer counsel to anyone wanting to improve their diet to achieve a healthier, more energetic quality of life.

Though the media can be a great starting point for starting a new diet, there are lots of conflicting information that may not be right for everyone. At Heart Wellness Group, we are proud to serve our community and offer personal consultations with professional dietitians to ensure you are improving what you eat in a way that works for you.

We provide nutritional counseling to everyone including those who seek weight management, hormonal imbalances, or have pre-existing conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, IBS, problems with their gastrointestinal health, and more.

There are several reasons to consider scheduling a consultation for nutritional counseling such as if you are experiencing digestive problems that may indicate an intolerance or food allergy or if you are pregnant. Patients recovering from eating disorders can be choosy eaters, or want to improve their overall health by making good dietary choices. We offer guidance, dietary advice, and nutritional wisdom to best suit your specific needs.

How can nutrition support healthy weight?
Indulging in too much of the wrong foods does contribute to weight gain, but there are other factors of your diet that need to be considered as well. Improper portion size, irregular eating habits, and poor combinations of nutrients can also be blamed for an increase in weight.

With our nutritional counseling, we work with you to make educated decisions on food choices, portion sizes, and to eat on a schedule that promotes weight loss while minimizing feelings of hunger and cravings. We also offer meal plans that can be tailored to your likes and dislikes while working with your schedule.

Once you know how to choose the right foods and how to cook at home as well as what to look for when eating out, eating healthfully is possible for anyone.

What if I already eat healthy?
That’s great! At Heart Wellness Group, we can offer our assistance in helping you to figure out where your diet may need adjusting to better help you achieve the results you desire.

Sometimes, even when you think you are taking the right steps, there can be stubborn areas of the body such as the thighs and abdomen that can be resistant to even the best nutritional diet and exercise regimens and in those cases, we are here to help.

How can a dietitian help me?
As registered dietitians, we will listen to your story, and review your diet and lifestyle to make recommendations on how you can optimize your diet. We will also schedule follow-up visits to help you throughout the process as you adjust to these changes and answer any questions that may arise as you start your healthy eating journey.

Our practice strives to keep up with the most recent and credible research findings on how food can affect your health so that we can always provide the most supreme and high-quality care for our patients.

What can I expect during my consultation?
Before your appointment, we recommend beginning a food diary to keep track of when and what you eat and drink over a few days. This will help our staff to get an idea of your habits.

During the consultation, we will discuss your goals and review any relevant dietary information such as digestive concerns and energy levels that may be affected by your food choices. Together, we will work with you to customize your meal plans while taking your schedule and lifestyle into account.

At Heart Wellness Group, we are proud to offer our nutritional counseling to anyone wishing to enhance their wellness through diet. Optimizing your nutrition is beneficial for all ages as it can help you to achieve a healthy weight, improve your mood, and lead to an overall better sense of wellbeing and quality of life.
