First nutrition consultations will take approximately 45 minutes, follow-up appointments will take 20-30 minutes depending on your case. At the first visit, we will discuss your goals, past medical and family history, current medications and health status as well as any diets you may be on or nutritional supplements you may be taking. At the initial visit, you will be asked to keep a specific and detailed diet and activity diary for one week to be reviewed at your next visit. On your second visit, dietary, supplementation and exercise recommendations will be made. After your second visit, we will meet biweekly to monitor progress and update your plan as necessary. We truly personalize your care therefore, it may take 1-2 days to fully review your case when changes need to be made to your personalized plan.
