Nutrition is defined as the process of providing or obtaining food necessary for health and growth. The human body requires macronutrients and micronutrients in order to sustain function. Nutrition is a balance; a balance of what our brain wants and what our bodies need. It is a balance of overconsumption and under consumption. It is a balance of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. In order to achieve optional nutrition we must learn this “balance.”

To obtain optimal nutrition, you must understand what to eat and when to eat. Media and science may confuse this process; we are constantly inundated with new diets, new research, new products and suggestions about nutrition. Nutrition is personal, is it specific to each individual. Foods, cooking style, products and nutrient timing that work for one personal, may not work for everyone.

Whether you are an athlete, diabetic, have high cholesterol, or have a family history of cardiovascular disease nutrition is an essential part of health. By understanding the relationship between foods intake, lifestyle, health history and personal goals, we can assist in changing nutrient intake in order to help you attain your goals and to improve your quality of life.

Nutritional advice and assistance will begin with a complete nutritional and medical history, and based on your goals and lifestyle a realistic and individualized plan will be created. What works for one client may not work for another therefore designing a plan that serves your unique needs is essential.
