Nutritional counseling at Active Life Chiropractic focuses on basic diet changes and disease-specific diet plans. The goal is to modify the diet through changes in the type and amount of food consumed. Body composition is measured and used to help evaluate the progress a patient is having with his or her diet and exercise plan.
Nutritional counseling can range from diet suggestions and tips to indepth diet analysis and diet plans to help with weight loss, maintenance or gain. Most often, a patient’s diet diary is used to create a patient specific diet based on the patient’s likes, dislikes and diet style; this helps with diet compliance as it is similar to what they are accustomed to. The patient's diet can also allow for some flexibility.
