Nutrition Counseling Q & A

What is nutritional counseling?

Your diet affects the health of your heart. But with so many diets and resources available, it can be difficult to know what you should eat to maintain a healthy cardiovascular system. 

The team at Heart One Associates offers nutritional counseling services — a personal nutrition program tailored to your lifestyle and personal circumstances. Nutritional counseling typically involves:

  • A custom food plan
  • Portion-size review
  • Healthy food swaps
  • Recommendations for when eating out
  • Advice on which foods to cut

If you have a cardiac condition or are at risk of developing one, nutritional counseling with the team 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 nutritional counselor?

Nutritional counseling services are valuable to anyone who wants to take control of their diet and heart 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
  • Chest pain

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 nutritional counseling session?

At your first session with one of the nutrition experts at Heart One Associates, your counselor reviews your medical history and current medications. They also ask questions about your lifestyle, diet, and exercise routine. Factors like how much stress you experience daily, your sleep patterns, and what you do for a living all contribute to your nutritional needs.

Nutritional counseling is a collaborative process, and your counselor encourages you to play an active role in your program. Together, you identify areas for improvement and agree on your personal goals. From there, your counselor creates an individualized diet plan.

Periodic reviews allow your counselor to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments. Counseling programs vary: some people value ongoing support and continue sessions for several months, while others have just two or three sessions initially before moving to twice-yearly check-ins. Your counselor helps you find a routine that suits you best.
