Eating healthful foods and eating well used to be easier. Food was less
refined, processed and complicated. Nutrition remains an important factor
for Canadians when selecting foods, with 71% rating it important according
to the National Institute of Nutrition's latest survey Tracking Nutrition
Trends V. Given the vast choice of foods available and the many
conflicting nutrition messages, many of us are understandably confused
and frustrated about what it means to eat to a healthy diet and may be
tempted to just give up. But consider this:
You will eat over 82,000 meals in your lifetime!
Let food be your medicine and medicine be
Food and therefore nutrition is an important part of being and staying
healthy. The choices you make will impact your health either in a negative
or positive way; Hippocrates knew this when he said “Let food
be your medicine and medicine be your food”. With this in
mind, Dietitians are your trusted nutrition experts and can be a great
ally in coaching you to reach your personal nutritional goals!
If you want to lose or gain weight, if you have an allergy or illness
that restricts your food intake, if you are considering vegetarianism
or want to fine tune your vegetarian diet, if you have a need for medical
nutrition therapy or if you just want to eat better to improve your energy,
well-being and overall health, then I can help you plan to ensure you
get enough nutrients and in the proper ratio to stay healthy. This involves
gaining a clear understanding of your eating habits, identifying areas
of strength in your current eating patterns and areas for improvement,
and setting up a specific plan, taking into account what you like to
eat and your daily schedule/lifestyle.
