What is Nutrition Consulting?

Most people eat at least 3 times a day, and each time you eat, you have an opportunity to fuel, repair, rebuild, and nourish your body for optimal energy and health outcomes. Paired with an intentional lifestyle, a holistic nutrition plan can help you achieve your health goals in a sustainable and effective way.

There’s no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to nutrition. One-on-one Nutrition Consulting helps you hone in on a tailored plan to meet your unique goals and health concerns. A holistic nutrition plan also addresses your relationship with food and barriers that might be getting in the way of feeling your best.

Tools utilized by Nutritionists include health education and coaching, meal plans, recipes, specific food and nutrient recommendations, nutrient breakdown and analysis, supplementation education and recommendations, individualized action plans, lifestyle recommendations for sleep, stress management and movement, as well as food relationship coaching and mindful eating techniques.

Questions for our Nutritionist in Vancouver WA

What can I expect at my appointment with a nutritionist in Vancouver WA?

Our Nutritional Consulting begins with an initial intake in our holistic health centre at Northwest Health Specialties.

In this holistic nutrition session, we take an in-depth look at your current lifestyle, diet, health concerns, health history, and goals. This session is about diving deep and exploring any obstacles that are getting in the way of you feeling better or achieving your health goals.

Following the intake, follow-up nutritionist appointments focus on checking in on your progress toward your goals, troubleshooting what’s not working, and tweaking your plan as needed. Further nutrient and lifestyle recommendations may be added on as you’re ready to take on more. These follow-up sessions provide you with continued support and further education to achieve optimal health and well-being.

How long is a session with our nutritionist in Vancouver WA?

New client intakes for our nutritionist in Vancouver WA are typically 75 minutes in length.

Follow-up visits are usually 60 minutes long.

How many sessions will I need?

How many sessions you have with our nutritionist in Vancouver WA, depends on your individual health concerns and goals. If you are experiencing significant health concerns or have a long-term goal, you may benefit from Nutrition Consulting over several months.

Our nutritionist will collaborate with you on how many sessions feel appropriate depending on your goals.

What is the difference between a Nutritionist and a Dietitian?

Dietitians and Nutritionists typically need a bachelor's or higher degree in dietetics, food, and nutrition, or a related field to enter the occupation.

Dietitians and Nutritionists typically receive supervised training, usually in the form of an internship following graduation from college. Some schools offer coordinated programs in dietetics that allow students to complete supervised training as part of their undergraduate- or graduate-level coursework. States vary in their requirements for each.

Most Dietitians will focus on the medical nutrition therapy aspect by providing government-regulated recommendations, while a Nutritionist (especially one with a master’s degree) can provide more tailored and holistic nutrition solutions. Credentialed and certified Nutritionists (those with advanced degrees) are well-versed in the complexities of bio-individuality, supplements, and therapeutic diets.

What kind of training do Nutritionists receive?

Not all Nutritionists receive the same kind of training, so it’s important to find one that is certified and credentialed.

A Certified Nutritionist is a state qualification unique to some states, Washington being one of them.

Working with a Certified Nutritionist means that they have obtained their Master’s degree in Nutrition and are recognized to practice in their state. Our Nutritionist holds a Master’s degree, has completed two supervised internships, and is certified by the state of Washington.
