An individual’s diet is the sum of food and drink that he or she habitually consumes. Dieting is the practice of attempting to achieve or maintain a certain weight through diet. People’s dietary choices are often affected by a variety of factors, including ethical and religious beliefs, clinical need, or a desire to control weight.
Not all diets are considered healthy. Some people follow unhealthy diets through habit, rather than through a conscious choice to eat unhealthily. Terms applied to such eating habits include “junk food diet” and “Western diet”. Many diets are considered by clinicians to pose significant health risks and minimal long-term benefit. This is particularly true of “crash” or “fad” diets – short-term weight-loss plans that involve drastic changes to a person’s normal eating habits.
Maintaining a well-rounded, nutritional diet can be challenging. Busy lifestyles, confusing information about food, and entrenched eating habits can conspire to make it especially difficult.
The goal of our diet counseling is to help you incorporate healthy eating habits gradually and include different foods one at a time.
The steps involved in diet counseling are:
- Health Assessment
- Body Composition Analysis and inch measurements to explain and analyze your body
- Recall of your daily eating habits and physical activity
- Personalized diet counseling
- Customized diet plans
- Regular diet reviews
