What can I expect in my first consultation?
The first consultation is about spending time getting to know you, your lifestyle, preferences and eating habits. We will work together to identify areas for improvement, set small achievable goals and prepare a plan for success. It it important not to expect a complete diet overhaul after your first consultation, as we are firm believers in progressive change. The following sessions will be based on translating medical nutrition therapy into practical nutrition advice by working through how you can apply this to your lifestyle. Your dietitian is here to support you and problem solve barriers and challengers that may arise.
