Nutrition Counseling Q & A

What is nutritional counseling?

What you eat and drink affects your health including your heart. But with so many diets and resources available, it can be difficult to know what you should eat.

The Heart One Associates is offering nutritional counseling services with a Registered Dietitian, the true nutrition expert. Personalized nutrition education and counseling tailored to you provides you with realistic and sustainable goals.

Nutritional counseling typically involves:

  • An assessment on your current habits
  • Nutrient recommendations
  • Portion-size review
  • Label reading
  • Healthier food swaps
  • Advice on which foods to reduce or include

If you have a cardiac condition or are at risk of developing one, nutritional counseling with the Registered Dietitian at Heart One Associates can support your heart disease treatment and lower the risks of your condition getting worse.

Do I need to see a Registered Dietitian?

Nutritional counseling services are valuable to anyone who wants to take control of their diet and health. However, it's especially beneficial if you currently have or at risk of any of the following:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart attack

If you have concerns about your heart health, speak to your provider at Heart One Associates about whether nutritional counseling is suitable for you.

What can I expect from a nutrition counseling session?

At your first session with the Registered Dietitian at Heart One Associates, the RD reviews your medical history and current medications. They also ask questions about your lifestyle, diet, and exercise routines. Factors like how much stress you experience daily, your sleep patterns, and what you do for a living all can impact your nutrition status.

Nutritional counseling is a collaborative process, and the RD encourages you to play an active role in your session. Together, you identify areas for improvement and agree on your personal goals.

Periodic reviews allow the RD to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments. Counseling frequency varies: some people value ongoing support and continue sessions for several months, while others have just two or three sessions initially before moving to more periodic check-ins. The RD will help you find a routine that suits you best.
