Our Process for Success

PRE CONSULTATION:
Prior to your consultation, you will need to download and fill out a questionnaire to allow me to prepare for our meeting. The questionnaire includes questions about your diet, health and current medication and the information is analysed before we meet.

INITIAL CONSULTATION AND ASSESSMENT (60-90 minutes):
During our time together I will work with you to identify your most pressing health concerns. Your medical history together with your current health and goals form the basis of your personal program. I will review your medical and family history, your current symptoms, any available laboratory and/or diagnostic data, current medications and supplements, potential environmental triggers, current diet practices, exercise routines, stress management techniques and sleep habits. The information gathered from the consultation together with the results of any tests is used to generate your personal program for optimal health. I will assist you with goal setting and when appropriate, I will recommend laboratory testing and supplements. You will have email access to me if questions arise between our appointments.

FOLLOW-UP CONSULTATION (30-60 minutes):
During your follow-up visits with me, I will review your prescribed plan, food intake, exercise practices, stress management techniques, sleep routine and supplement regimen. We will discuss successes and shortcomings of your nutrition and wellness plan, and together we will come up with solutions and modify your plan to better meet your needs. I will encourage you to document and connect the dots between your healthy lifestyle choices and your symptoms (or lack of symptoms). Your most pressing nutrition needs are the primary focus of our time together. As your symptoms subside with healthy lifestyle and food changes, we will address other topics, such as stress management, exercise, behavior modification, and potential environmental stressors.

SLO Nutrition accepts all major credit cards, checks, cash and direct bank transfers. Counseling may also be eligible using health savings account (HSA) and flex savings account (FSA).

The number of calories you need to maintain, lose or gain weight is based on age, weight, height and activity level (you can calculate this with the tool located on my resource tab).
Weight cycling (losing and regaining weight), % lean body mass and types of macronutrients consumed, also influence your calorie requirement. Unfortunately, it isn’t as simple as “calories in – calories out” because macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates and fats) stimulate different hormonal
responses when they are consumed and absorbed.

There is no “one diet” that works for everyone. Food is very personal, and your nutrition plan needs to match your specific needs. After your initial appointment with me, I will make recommendations based on my assessment. These recommendations are designed to target your most pressing needs, and will be adjusted during follow up visits.
