Nutrition Counseling Q & A

What is nutritional counseling?

Nutritional counseling is far more than a weight loss program, though that is usually part of the equation. Your body depends on a certain amount of vitamins and nutrients for it to function at its best and, unfortunately, in today’s world of fast and processed food, this is difficult to accomplish.

Just as you need to ensure that your car has the right fuel, it’s incumbent upon you to make sure that your body has what it needs so that all of your systems are functioning optimally, from your heart to your head. This is especially true if you have a chronic disease, such as diabetes, where your diet plays a pivotal role.

Through nutritional counseling, the team at Rochester Primary Care, including dietician Mary, outlines dietary programs that are tailored to your unique goals and medical history.

What’s included in nutritional counseling?

Rochester Primary Care offers a number of nutritional counseling services, such as:

  • Nutrition classes
  • Disease management classes
  • Diabetic education

Through better education about what you put into your body, Rochester Primary Care opens your eyes to the possibilities of better health through nutrition.

How does nutritional counseling help my health?

What you eat dictates your health in every way. For example, for a diabetic with glucose problems, monitoring glucose-laden foods is paramount — and glucose is often hidden in foods you wouldn’t expect, such as carbohydrates.

Additionally, if you have a problem like high blood pressure or high cholesterol, cutting out fats and salt is key.

In an overall sense, if you’re carrying excess weight, you’re taxing your body. More often than not, nutritional counseling involves weight loss as there are a myriad of health conditions that are affected by excess weight.
