Registered dietitians are health care professionals who are trained to provide advice and counselling about diet, food and nutrition. Dietitians translate complex scientific evidence into practical solutions to promote health and manage special health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, food allergies and obesity. They use the best available evidence coupled with good judgment about the client’s or communities’ unique values and circumstances to determine guidance and recommendations. Dietitians help people make healthy food choices, separating fact from fiction and distinguishing healthy eating plans from those that don’t provide optimal nourishment.
At Elevated Health and Wellness, we go beyond the consultation room and bring full circle the science of nutrition and everyday eating habits. Amanda will fully equip you with the knowledge and skills to effectively plan, shop and prepare meals that meet your unique health goals. “Healthy Eating” goes beyond food alone. There is a strong body-mind-soul connection and how it relates to a person’s overall health. During the counselling process, Amanda will help you tune into your physical hunger and identify emotional triggers, environmental factors, and social cues that may be affecting your daily food habits and eating behaviours.
Change can be frightening, but we are here to help you prepare for change and adopt sustainable lifestyle habits.
