Your Dietitian Consultation
The consultation process
1: Find out your body composition
We use a sophisticated version of your bathroom scale. Your can gives us an instant report showing the composition of water, bone, muscle and fat in your body.
2: Identify your unique health challenges
We’ll ask questions to learn about your current health challenges. Most importantly, we’ll talk through your goals and how you’d like to make your life more energetic, healthy and nutritious.
3. Create your plan for success
Instead of a mass-market meal plan, your dietitian will build a solution just for you. We take into account your tastes, lifestyle and goals to set a program that you’ll enjoy following.
Do I have to eat food I hate? Or starve myself?
Not at all! There’s no reason to force down kale smoothies or anything else you hate to eat. Restricting your calories only leads to binges later. We prefer an evidence-led approach. So, you enjoy nourishing, healthy food while losing weight.
You’ve tried countless diets, right?
Are you feeling a failure because you weren’t able to stick to restrictive diets in the past? Those diets don’t work. They only make you feel worse about yourself, which leads you to try another diet. It’s a vicious cycle.
We don’t follow fad diets
As accredited dietitians, we use the latest nutritional studies and proven strategies to support you during a process of safe, healthy weight loss (and beyond). Let’s get you out of the vicious cycle and enjoying life and good health again.
Will this approach work for me?
We understand you may be unsure. After all, you’ve tried plenty of diets before, and you don’t want another failure. We can’t guarantee an outcome because the responsibility lies with you. However, if you follow the program it does work. They key is to be patient, show up to appointments, work on your mindset and trust the process.
The second consultation
During the second consultation, you have the option of a metabolic rate test (for a fee of $120). Essentially, it allows us to find out if you have a fast, normal or slow metabolism. Knowing this can help us tweak your plan to get your metabolism working harder for you during your weight loss journey.
Why don’t we do this on the first consultation?
It’s enough to start with a body scan. Plus, not everyone needs a metabolic rate test, so it’s an optional extra. Seeing a dietitian for the first time can be overwhelming so we deliberately keep our initial appointments simple and streamlined.
