If needed, your primary care physician also may direct you to one of our registered dietitians who works one-on-one with patients to develop healthier eating patterns. Nutrition education is crucial, and our registered dietitians will provide you with a comprehensive nutritional assessment, create a customized nutrition plan and provide information and resources to help you stay on track toward your health goals. Insurance coverage varies. Check with your insurance carrier to find out if registered dietitian appointments are covered under your plan.

Nutritional assessment

The first step is a comprehensive nutritional evaluation with your provider. This includes a discussion about:

  • Weight history
  • Realistic weight-loss goals
  • Food and eating habits
  • Activity level
  • Medical conditions you may have

Ongoing nutrition education

We provide the ongoing support and guidance you need to stay on track with your weight loss. Support can include:

  • Food trackers (food journals), where you note when, where and what you ate and how you felt while you were eating
  • Activity trackers, where you note when, where and what activity you did every day
  • Recipe suggestions
  • Meal or snack ideas

Your primary care physician or registered dietitian also may direct you to a specialized education program. These include:
