Nutrition Consultant/Registered Dietician

Did you know that dietary factors are associated with 4 of the 10 leading causes of death? Following appropriate nutritional guidelines can help thwart obesity, coronary heart disease, some types of cancer, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. However, people usually become attentive to nutritional advice only after the onset of disease or illness. Nutrition is an integral part of health and its impact on wellness is indisputable. Meet one-on-one with our Registered Dietitian for individual counseling to discuss how nutrition can be a part of your healthy lifestyle!

Trying to lose weight?
