Follow-up consultations are designed to monitor your progress and guide you through any pitfalls. They will keep you on track, help you to implement your program for maximum success, and are designed to guide and support you every step of the way. Carol will be your personal nutritionist. This is Part 3 of our 3-part program – making healthy lifestyle changes so that you are incorporating health and nutrition into your life on an everyday basis – hopefully, for the rest of your life.
At this point, you should be feeling much better, and if you are on our weight loss program, you are also losing weight. Many of your original symptoms (energy, digestion, and so forth) should be getting better. As we continue to implement Parts 1 and 2, we go deeper into your needs and provide more tips, recipes, eating plans, and strategies that are designed to make your program manageable and fun. We continue to tweak and adjust your entire program so that you are not only feeling better and better all the time, but are feeling supported and guided as you continue to incorporate these healthy changes into your life. If you are on our weight loss program, you are also continuing to lose weight.
If needed, we talk about emotional eating in these consultations, and provide strategies, information and guidance to overcome some of the eating patterns developed as a result of emotional eating. We also provide a lot of nutrition education in these consultations, which is specific to you. In these consultations, we also discuss exercise strategies, eating out at restaurants, stress management techniques, and more. Nutrition programs containing this information are provided.
If any specialized nutrition testing is needed (for example, allergy testing, hormone testing, genetic testing, and others – see nutrition testing), we provide the appropriate test kits, thoroughly explain your test results to you and then provide you with a nutrition plan custom-designed around your results. If blood work is needed, we will discuss these options in the course of these consultations, as well.
During these follow-up consultations, and with our guidance, you are understanding more and more the connection between how you feel and your nutritional status. You are also understanding more and more how your body functions and how to support these functions nutritionally. As you progress through these consultations, making the healthy lifestyle changes created for you in your nutrition program becomes easier and easier. You should be becoming more and more empowered to make these changes permanently.
Follow-up consultations are $65 per consultation. Each consultation is approximately 1 hour, but can sometimes last longer. If that is the case, you are never charged more than $65. Depending on your needs, the highest success rate happens if you are able to have a follow-up consultation once a month – usually for a minimum of 3 or 4 months.
This consultation is also known as an individual consultation.
