March is National Nutrition Month!

Nutritional Counseling

Healthy eating helps you feel your best and have plenty of energy. It's also one of the best things you can do to prevent and control many health problems, such as:

•  Heart disease

•  High blood pressure

•  Type 2 diabetes

•  Some types of cancer

Nutritional intervention can increase a patient’s health and well-being, productivity, and satisfaction levels. Check below for valuable videos and weight-loss topics from our registered dieticians.

All sessions are comprised of one-on-one meetings with a registered dietitian. The information received is based on the latest nutritional standards. We pride ourselves on providing nutritional advice that is explained in practical terms for everyday use. Our sessions may include shopping tips, dining out strategies, convenience cooking, and social eating skills.
