Your Long Term Success

Education is Key

We believe that an educational focus is critically important to your long-term success.

JAMA and Cornell agree: they both have published findings on how effective nutrition counseling improves health.  In developing a working knowledge of nutrition, you will be able to make better choices on your own, and will be better able to problem-solve when faced with food-related predicaments.  As part of the educational process, we focus on the following key areas:

You learn how to speak “nutrition”:


Your food is made of up many different types of molecules, which fall into three major categories: proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Everything you eat contains these building blocks in different proportions, and your body processes, digests, and stores these substances in your body differently. Your nutritionist/dietitian teaches you about each of the three macronutrient categories, and how you should think about them practically as you go about preparing and eating your meals.


The word “calorie” has become a buzzword, in terms of people counting them, cutting them, or trying to forget about them altogether. Fundamentally, the term “calorie” represents how much energy you will gain from the food that you eat. Things get complicated because your body digests foods at different rates, and the timing of this energy release affects your appetite and mood. Your nutritionist/dietitian will help you better understand how to think about calories, and stop obsessing over them.

Food Groups:

Eating and feeling full is far more complicated that calculating macronutrients and calories. Timing of meals and snacks, how you combine foods and how often you eat contribute to your success. Your nutritionist/dietitian will help you think about your new knowledge of food groups in the proper context, and will guide and challenge you to apply these academic and educational lessons in your everyday life.

The process is iterative: you learn as you go:

This information is best digested in small bites. Because you will meet with a nutrition counselor twice a week, you will regularly add new pieces of information to your knowledge bank, and you will be able to put these concepts to work as you learn them. Learning, followed immediately by action, brings these academic concepts to life, helps you remember them, and makes them more valuable to your weight loss and lifestyle journey.

Our method will help you sustain your lifestyle change:

The ongoing virtual support of your nutritionist/dietitian, in conjunction with your program materials, will teach you the science and logic behind the changes you make, and enable you to make your initial health and/or weight loss transformation a permanent one.
