Are you dissatisfied with your current eating habits?
Overeating and inactivity plague many of us in the “Western world”. Many are eating too much and some are eating too little. Often we follow our “inner voice” which tells us to comfort ourselves, stay alert longer, or have the “perfect body.” This leads to unhealthy eating habits which can cause discomfort, body dysmorphia, or even premature aging.
Monica is a certified nutritionist who will work with you to explore your eating habits while considering your personal preferences for food and physical activity.
What can you gain by changing your eating habits?
The 60 minute initial session includes a thorough examination of your eating patterns, exercise and lifestyle habits. We will discuss your health goals, and start up a plan. This will form the basis of your personalized nutrition program. Waist and/or weight measurements, as well as Body Mass Index (BMI) are recorded voluntarily for baseline data at this session. BMI uses weight and height to estimate body fat, are recorded for baseline data at this session.
To continue your journey for improving your health, Monica will provide timely feedback via email on a post-consultation photo diary that you create of your daily food intake. This will help build awareness about strengths and weaknesses within your current diet. You will also be meeting with Monica to discuss action steps based on your photo diary. Monica will email you to summarize the “action points” discussed for your plan after each follow up session.
Recipes can be provided if needed. Otherwise, Monica will provide guidance around changes to your own recipes and meal choices to make your eating habits healthier.
Don’t fret! You can still enjoy your guilty pleasure foods! There is a general consensus among nutrition experts that people who eat healthily for just 80% of the time, and exercise regularly are less likely to develop health disorders (ie. metabolic syndrom, cardiovascular disorders, etc.) and signs of premature aging.
