What is Nutritional Counseling?

Nutritional counseling is a broad-spectrum approach to improving men’s health through dietary and lifestyle changes. Many men, especially men approaching middle age, worry about weight loss, diabetes, high cholesterol or blood pressure, hormone imbalances, sexual performance, and eating disorders.

Our nutritional counselors excel at and enjoy helping you lower your blood pressure, max out your sexual performance, lose weight, reach your dietary goals, and reap the benefits of a healthy, vibrant lifestyle.

Is Nutritional Counseling right for you?

Our method is not centered on lecturing or demeaning you for your current condition or previous lifestyle choices. Instead, our nutritional counselors provide a supportive, future-focused partnership to optimize your health and happiness.

If you’re willing to make positive nutritional and lifestyle changes, we’re ready to inspire and guide you through successful treatment of:

  • weight gain/obesity
  • decreased libido
  • gastrointestinal conditions
  • high blood pressure
  • high cholesterol
  • low energy/fatigue
  • diabetes and pre-diabetes
  • food allergies
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Celiac Disease

What Can I Expect from Nutritional Counseling?

During your initial consultation you’ll discuss your medical history, stress levels, sleep patterns, sexual performance, energy, exercise routine, and medication regimen. Once your nutritional counselor has a complete picture of your current state and health goals, he or she will craft custom education, nutrition, and exercise plans to revitalize your health and maximize your joy.

Assessing Your Dietary Health

After you share information about your typical daily diet and exercise regimen, your counselor may ask you to track nutrient and calorie intake in a food journal.

In some cases food sensitivity testing to identify intolerances and allergies may be necessary. Studies have shown that certain food intolerances or allergies may trigger chronic headaches, fatigue, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Celiac Disease, weight gain, fibromyalgia, and many other conditions. It’s best to rule these out at the beginning of your treatment.

Body Weight Assessment

Your counselor may request body weight, body mass index, and body fat percentage assessments, or draw blood to test your cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels. This baseline information helps us customize your long-term treatment plan successfully.

Identifying Your Goals, Challenges, and Changes

During your initial sessions, your counselor will work with you to determine what goals you want to achieve. You’ll map out the challenges that may stand in your way, and chart your gradual progress while overcoming them. You’ll start with small steps, like replacing soda with water, then work your way up to bigger changes and bigger wins.

Making dietary and lifestyle changes can be tough. But rest assured, you’re not alone. Our counselors are more than just nutritionists—they’re dedicated guides who’ll support you during your journey, providing encouragement and education when you need it most.
