Each consult is designed specifically to help the individual meet their goals. Before the consultation, each individual will complete a brief summary sheet identifying goals, current habits, and exercise/training routines. Past medical history and current anthropometric measurements should be included. Each individual will complete a 3-day food diary before the initial consultation. During the consultation, we will discuss the results of your current food pattern with nutrient excesses or insufficiencies. Potential modifications will be discussed that will lead to successfully reaching your overall goals. After the consultation, you will receive a 3-day meal plan with suggestions on modifications and exchanges that will allow you more freedom in maintaining success, along with other listed recommendations. Some consultations will require follow-up meetings to successfully reach your goals. Each consultation can be modified to meet the individual’s goals in the most efficient way possible.
