Eating is one of the great pleasures of life. But, as we all know, it can easily get out of control. Poor eating habits can lead to excess weight gain, weight loss or other illnesses. The fact that so many people fail in their attempts to break long-standing eating habits demonstrate how difficult the process can be.
I provide individual and family nutrition counseling. I specialize in finding solutions to longstanding problems with weight control, eating disorders and unhealthy eating behaviors, as well as individuals struggling with diet-related chronic illnesses. I am passionate about preventing and treating overweight in children and adolescents and frequently speaks about these topics. I have successfully aided adults with weight control, type II diabetes, and inflammation-related conditions.
Since everyone has their own unique relationship with food, I begin with a thorough dietary behavior history.
Subsequent sessions help identify thoughts and behaviors that contribute to dysregulated eating. I teach principles of nutrition, metabolism and the biology of eating behavior. I will measure your metabolism, as well as body composition to determine your percentage of muscle and fat. I will design an individual meal plan for you, based on the foods you like and your lifestyle, complete with recipes and dining out choices. Together, you’ll develop strategies for adopting sustainable habits and making smart food choices that work for you and not against you.
