An initial consult includes a detailed review of any health issues and your current diet and lifestyle patterns.
Following this, Bella will explain how you can make changes to your diet to achieve your health goal or treat your health condition.
Finally, she will work with you on the practicalities of integrating these changes into your current lifestyle - this can take shape in whichever way you feel comfortable - some people like a prescriptive meal plan, while others prefer options they choose from for meals and snacks.
These changes aren't always specifically food related, sometimes there are lifestyle factors (for example sleep patterns or meal timing), that may also be addressed. There is usually more to discuss and follow up appointments are recommended.
During a follow-up appointment Bella will discuss your progress since the initial consult and provide further guidance on specific lifestyle changes that may be more difficult to achieve. She will keep track of your progress and provide further resources where required.
All appointments are designed to improve your ability to deal with day-to-day situations around food. At the end of your sessions you will be empowered with the tools and strategies to maintain a healthy diet.
Where appropriate, the latest Xyris FoodWorks software will be used to analyse your overall diet and to identify key nutrients that may be at risk. Xyris is the leading provider of nutritional analysis software in Australia today.
