Weight Management & Nutrition Guidance

Controlling your weight comes down to one thing - managing calories. The body is a complex machine that requires fuel to run your metabolism and perform all movement. Calories from the food and beverages you consume provide this fuel. If you burn all the fuel you take in, your weight will remain stable. If you have excess fuel that isn’t burned, it will be stored as body fat and your weight will increase. Similarly, if you burn more fuel than you take in, you’ll lose weight – it’s that simple. By managing the calories you take in and the calories you burn, you can successfully control your weight.

Exercise is not always enough. 70 – 80% of your results could be affected by how you eat. If you need help with weight loss, high blood pressure or cholesterol or managing diabetes, see one of our degreed nutritionists. Our staff is available to counsel you on ways to meet your nutritional needs and health goals. We offer education and counseling about healthy eating, preventative nutrition and lifestyle choices. Contact us to schedule a consultation so that we can assess your current nutritional status.
