Your diet has a large impact on your health. No matter how many hours you log at the gym, nothing is going to show results, unless you choose to be careful about what you eat. You don’t need to be under the weather to seek nutritional counseling. In this post, we will talk about a few facts worthy of your attention. |
What's Nutritional Counseling?
Simply put, nutritional counseling can be defined as the process of evaluating the nutritional needs of a person. You can be someone dealing with weight loss, or an athlete looking to reduce injuries, pain or quickly recover from an injury.
The Benefits at a Glance
Ideally getting some bloodwork done to determine your micronutrient levels is best. We prefer using Spectracell Labs given their reputation. Spectracell looks at the micronutrients in a white blood cell instead looking at what’s floating around your bloodstream. This is more specific as we can see what your body is truly absorbing. From there we formulate a plan, in conjunction with your treatment goals, to get you where you want and need to be.
Your diet also plays a big role here. Eating the proper amounts of protein, fat and carbohydrates for your lifestyle and activity level is vital. Also, the time of day you are eating (ie. no late night meals) and what kind of meal during the day is important. For example, 30-45 minutes after working out are you eating sufficient protein and carbohydrates as compared to 12-16 hours after that same work out?
First and foremost, your nutritional consults don’t have to be a lecture about good food. Of course, some people need nutritional counseling more than others, such as serious athletes, people dealing with weight goals and others who have specific health problems. You can check with an Austin chiropractic clinic. The first appointment might take some time, so make sure that you pick a date that’s suited to your schedule. Your journey to a better body starts right there!
