Eating Right for a Healthy Lifestyle
There is so much misinformation about what constitutes healthy eating. There's no need to try and wade through all the available advice and information and guess at what will actually work for you. Whether you are looking to lose weight or are simply looking to improve your overall health, enlisting the aid of a registered dietitian will help you to safely and effectively achieve your goal.
Your certified nutritionist or registered dietitian at Franciscan Health will offer personally tailored advice based on your health history, eating and exercise habits and preferred foods. They can also help you to manage chronic diseases and conditions such as heart disease, kidney disease, metabolic disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, food allergies and intolerances, and diabetes.
During your session with the certified nutritionist, you will learn the following:
- Specific food choices that are right for you
- How to read food labels
- How to eat healthy while dining out
- How to plan daily meals
- How to modify recipes to make them healthier
Most diets will work temporarily, but the results don't last long. If you need to get your eating habits under control, your dietitian or nutritionist can work with you to make sure you are able to change your eating lifestyle for lasting results. By providing strategies for meal planning, grocery shopping, food journaling and mindful eating, you will be armed with the information you need for success.
