Functional Nutrition and Lifestyle Therapist

If you’ve ever felt like your wellness routine could use an overhaul, you’re in good company. Many people want to eat healthier or exercise more but don’t know how to go about it in a way that will support their needs. If this sounds like you, nutritional counseling with the Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Center could be a good fit.

Here at the PLMC, we’re on a mission to redefine the way we define and measure health. Rather than thinking of it as the absence of disease, we see health as all-encompassing and holistic. Nutrition is one of the 5 Pillars of Health, the other four being sleep, exercise/movement, stress management, and relationships/community. Establishing a balance between all of these is the key to living a healthier, more fulfilled life. Working with a functional nutrition and lifestyle therapist for nutritional counseling at the PLMC may be your ticket to success.


What Is Nutritional Counseling?

The food we eat directly contributes to our mental and physical state. Nutritional counseling takes an inventory of one’s diet and relationship with food to first establish a baseline and then determine a plan of action for how this relationship could improve.

There are many types of nutritional counseling, each with their own methods, techniques, and differentiators. Some people swear by counting macros; others weigh and measure their food portions; others still abide by intuitive eating. Nutritional counseling involves a professional working with a patient to determine a) what their current state of nutrition is, b) what their nutritional goals are, and c) how to get there.


Who Needs Nutritional Counseling

Everyone and anyone could benefit from nutritional counseling. After all, whose diet is perfect? The thing about food and nutrition, however, is that it’s not about being perfect. Instead, it is about finding a way of eating and taking in nutrients that sustains the type of lifestyle you live.

While nutritional counseling could be useful for all people, there are certain conditions in which it is especially important that the individual receive nutritional counseling. These conditions include but are not limited to:

  • Diabetes
  • Weight Management
  • High Cholesterol
  • Fertility Concerns
  • Eating Disorders
  • Athletes
  • Digestive Diseases
  • …and more!
