What to Expect During Your Visit

During your initial nutrition counseling session, Monica will ask what your reason for the visit is (e.g. weight loss or wanting to eat healthier) and guide you through a comprehensive assessment that includes:

Health History and Clinical Information

Besides getting your height and weight, Monica will discuss any existing medical conditions, family history, and lifestyle factors that may affect your nutrition. This information helps her develop a holistic understanding of your unique needs.

Dietary Analysis

To better understand your current eating habits, Monica will conduct a 24-hour dietary recall. This discussion will provide insights into your typical food choices and patterns. A food frequency questionnaire will help identify areas for improvement and explore new food options.

Personalized Nutrition Plan

Based on the information gathered, Monica will develop a personalized nutrition program for you. This plan will focus on practical solutions and realistic goals, considering your lifestyle and preferences. She believes in providing guidance without long-term calorie or macronutrient tracking, emphasizing a more sustainable approach to eating.

Meal Plans (Optional)

If you feel you may benefit from additional structure and guidance, Monica provides optional meal plans. These plans can be helpful for those struggling with portion control or weight management.
