Increasingly many acute and chronic health problems and conditions are related to poor nutrition. Most of the heart disease and cancer can be attributed to unhealthy eating habits and obesity. Nutrition counseling can help prevent and manage such nutrition related conditions, in addition to weight management.
Nutrition counseling is an ongoing process in which a Licensed Nutrition Professional works with an individual to assess his or her usual dietary intake and identify areas where change is needed. The nutrition counselor provides information, education, support and follow-up care to help the individual make and maintain the needed dietary changes to improve and maintain a better health.
