Nutrition Consultations Q & A

What is a nutrition consultation?

A nutrition consultation is a preventive health measure that involves improving your health, energy level, and quality of life by changing your diet and eating healthier foods.

The foods you eat and the beverages you drink contain vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. Your digestive system converts these nutrients into energy and uses them to fuel your brain and body.

Food that’s high in additives, preservatives, sugars, and salt can be toxic and downright unhealthy for your cells. If you eat a consistently poor diet, you’re also more likely to develop metabolic problems that can lead to weight gain.

Following a nutrition consultation, Ms. Chaudhary can help you harness the nutrients in your diet. She can also recommend recipes and foods that ease the symptoms of chronic disease and promote weight loss.

 

Who can benefit from nutrition consultations?

Anyone who wants to live a happier, healthier, and more active lifestyle can benefit from a nutrition consultation. At FH Medical Care, Ms. Chaudhary regularly provides nutrition consultations to people who:

  • Want to reach their best possible health
  • Are overweight or obese
  • Are at risk of developing a chronic disease
  • Have certain allergies
  • Have certain medical conditions

 

For example, many chronic diseases like high blood pressure and diabetes respond well to healthy eating. Consuming fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains can significantly lower your blood sugar levels and improve the health of your heart.

 

What can I expect from a nutrition consultation?

A nutrition consultation presents an opportunity to learn more about how your body consumes and uses fuel.

Working with Ms. Chaudhary, you can achieve better physical and mental health, greater mobility, fewer symptoms, and less pain. Many people who participate in nutrition consultations also notice a change in their mood and general outlook on life. Eating clean foods can transform your life for the better.

 

What happens during a nutrition consultation?

During a nutrition consultation, Ms. Chaudhary does a physical exam, reviews your medical history, and asks you about your goals. Ms. Chaudhary also weighs you and measures your height. She also orders a series of tests to learn more about your cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

After gathering all of this information, Ms. Chaudhary develops a nutritional plan that aligns with your goals and health history. In addition to encouraging you to change your diet, Ms. Chaudhary might also recommend vitamins or nutritional supplements.
