Nutrition Q & A

Why is nutrition important?

Nutrition is an integral part of your life. It helps your body function properly and may also fight off chronic disease and weight issues. 

Good nutrition includes a variety of whole foods and staying away from overly-processed foods that aren’t good for you. Whole foods are the best way to get all of the vital nutrients and vitamins that your body needs. Types of foods that the team recommends for a balanced diet include:

  • Whole grains
  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Low-fat dairy
  • Lean proteins

Proper nutrition helps your brain and organs function the way they’re intended. This allows you to stay healthy and at the ideal weight. Improper nutrition can lead to chronic issues and diseases that significantly affect your quality of life.

What is included in nutrition counseling?

At The Vine Medical Clinic, the team offers nutritional counseling to get you back to a healthy lifestyle. Whether you’re experiencing chronic disease or you just want to improve your life, The Vine Medical Clinic team has a nutrition plan for you.

Nutritional counseling includes helping you determine what foods are necessary for optimal health.

If you’re looking to build lean muscle and optimize your performance as an athlete, the team makes recommendations that keep you within your calorie goal while honing in on lean proteins. 

The Vine Medical Clinic team can also create a personalized nutrition plan if you’re looking to slim down or just eat healthier in general. They may recommend blood work to see where your electrolytes and cholesterol stand to better understand what you need.

Can nutrition counseling help you lose weight?

Nutritional counseling isn’t just for your overall well-being — it can help you lose weight as well. The team provides you with a personalized nutrition plan tailored to your body and needs.

If you’re overweight, making small changes in your diet can help you shed a few pounds. While the primary goal of nutrition counseling may be to get you the proper nutrients and vitamins, it can also mean losing weight to fight off chronic disease.
