Nutrition

nutrition-programs

Nutrition counselling programs are designed to provide clients with nutritional guidance and support. All nutritional evaluations and counselling sessions are conducted by a registered dietitian or a dietetic intern overseen by a registered dietitian. Registered dietitians are licensed by the Ordre professionnel des diététistes du Québec (OPDQ) and are members of Dietitians of Canada. Receipts are provided for medical insurance and income tax purposes.

The following services include the use of an online food journal, eaTracker.ca™ with the services of the dietitian who will be able to access your food journal and provide feedback through this tool.

Nutritional Evaluation and Feedback Appointment

This stand-alone appointment is ideal if you are comfortable adjusting your eating habits on your own, but   would like feedback on your current habits that take into account a review of your medical history, medications and symptoms.

Follow-up Nutritional Appointment

Your nutritional habits are re-assessed by reviewing your current food habits. Results from your nutritional evaluation or the previous appointment are further discussed and you will collaboratively establish goals and habits to help you achieve your goal.


Other Services

A measurement using a high-quality MOXUS Metabolic System provides the professional and participant with a precise value of daily energy needs complementing the nutritional evaluation. This measure includes a report explaining what this measurement means and how it relates to overall health.
