One of the key components of a healthy lifestyle is proper nutrition and a registered dietitian will provide you with a good foundation of nutritional knowledge on which to build. A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, “good fat” and lacking in “bad fat” and refined sweets has been proven to decrease risks of cancer and heart disease by up to 50 percent.
This portion of the program is highlighted by a nutritious breakfast and lunch that will be the fuel on which your body will draw during the day. The dietitian will also give you cooking tips and help remove the mystery surrounding food labels. An interactive consultation in the “nutrition room” will be beneficial in helping you to put your newfound knowledge to work by exploring examples of everyday choices that you will face on a restaurant menu, in the grocery store or in your pantry at home.
