Do you dread the idea of seeing a registered dietitian/nutritionist? Are you afraid all of your favorite foods will be eliminated? Do you hate being lectured to about what to eat? Are you fearful of being judged or reprimanded about your eating habits?
Relax....that's not what nutrition counseling is all about when you are under my care. In fact, my goal is to help you fit your favorite foods into your daily life in a healthful and smart way, so that your health goals can be achieved. I take the time to listen intently and to understand and achieve your desired outcomes. And I am not the "food police."
There are so many fad diets out there. Who do you believe when it comes to the best diet for you? The truth is there is not a one size fits all approach. The best diet for your friend or family member may actually be the worse diet for you, and vice versa.
With nutrition counseling, you and I can work together to encourage good dietary choices in your everyday life and determine what the best nutrition care is for you specifically. As a nutrition counselor, my aim is not to lecture you on nutrition-related conditions or what foods are best for everyone. My goal is to help you with your nutrition goals and provide educated suggestions for dietary changes to help you achieve those goals.
How Can You Benefit from a Nutrition Consult for Overall Mental Health?
Whether you are aiming to manage a medical condition through dietary changes, get some new healthy recipe ideas for weight management, improve your food choices for a more therapeutic diet, or get a complete diet overhaul complete with food diary, you are in the right place! With our health professional, Dr. Cheryl Winter, by your side giving you the best possible dietary counseling for your needs and health conditions, you can rest assured that you will be on your way to great health.
Believe it or not, it is actually more important that you have an annual nutrition counseling session than it is to see your doctor every year because a nutrition consultation can actually prevent you from ever needing a doctor. When you discuss your dietary habits with a registered dietitian nutritionist who can provide nutrition counseling, you can avoid the serious health issues that often accompany a poor diet or eating disorder.
Dr. Cheryl Winter can help with identifying behaviors that lead to poor food choices and discuss with you ways to make dietary changes when those behaviors present themselves. With great nutrition care and our helpful educational materials, you will begin to see health effects right away and continue making dietary choices in a positive direction.
Medical Nutrition Therapy
As opposed to general nutrition counseling, medical nutrition therapy focuses on nutrition assessment as a way to manage certain health conditions such as high blood pressure, Diabetes, obesity, and other concerns. When you are looking for a way to manage a disease through needed dietary changes, you can rest assured that consulting registered dietitians will be extremely helpful to your overall well-being and health.
Our registered dietitian nutritionist will work with the client to understand the individual's situation, provide the support he or she needs, and offer carefully considered advice for different dietary choices that will improve energy, reduce weight, and maintain overall wellness.
It is important that you seek out the professional advice of a trained nutrition counselor for treatment and to figure out how certain foods affect your specific body chemistry. We always need to remember that this will be a gradual process that requires careful monitoring and consistency from the person receiving the treatment.
After a period of time, your primary care physician will notice the health improvements and maybe even identify areas to work into the ongoing process. Throughout all of it, though, Dr. Cheryl Winter will be by your side.
Let's Talk about Eating Habits
One of the biggest fears and causes of the greatest apprehension when it comes to seeking out nutrition counseling is that people worry they will be lectured about bad foods and scolded for eating something that is "unhealthy". When you visit Dr. Cheryl Winter for your nutrition counseling appointment, you can rest assured that she will not scold you or make you feel uneasy. Patients should know that our health care professional is here to offer advice and help with nutrition (which includes food intake and supplements) so that you can meet your health goals.
Eating habits are not necessarily going to be the same across the board for every person, and a nutritionist will be well-aware of that. This means that your counseling sessions will be based on your typical food intake as well as the goals you have set for yourself.
Our physicians will examine you, discuss your individual needs, and work with you to improve your overall well-being through wise food choices. Clients will never walk out of our office feeling ashamed or defeated when it comes to their eating habits. We only work to improve them and get you more energy in the future.
