This assessment includes an initial 75 min session and a follow-up 40 min session. You will be asked to fill out a Nutrition & Health History Form and complete a Three Day Food Record in advance of the session. During the initial assessment Nicole will review your medical and nutrition history, establish health goals and identify probable challenges that may be present. Together with Nicole, you will assess your three day food record and discuss topics such as any food preferences, intolerances, current food intake, portion sizes and health concerns. Exercise habits, activity levels and any other areas that can affect your personal success will also be addressed. Nicole will take your weight and height for BMI analysis and various body measurements for a healthy weight assessment.
With the information collected and from working closely with you, Nicole will prepare an individualized nutrition plan and develop nutrition recommendations that are suited to your needs, goals and lifestyle. Nutrition plans provide strategies and balanced options to suit your lifestyle. The plan is an individualized guide based on your health and lifestyle information. The purpose of a nutrition plan is to provide structure and guidance assisting you with food choice, meal development and improved nutrition practices in your daily living. Traditional "Meal Plans" provide limited long term education and value. They typically do not provide the necessary education and resources for individuals to move forward in creating nutritious, balanced options for themselves. A nutrition plan provides structure while remaining flexible and empowering you to make healthier choices that fit your lifestyle.Nicole will review your personalized plan during the 40 min follow-up session during which any concerns and questions can be addressed. By the end of this session you will have an in-depth understanding of your nutrition plan and how to successfully achieve your health and nutrition goals.
