When it comes to fitness, making smart food choices is just as important as getting in your workouts. That’s why we offer nutritional counseling services with our team of licensed Registered Dietitians. Your RD will focus on your individual goals, and empower you to build habits that fit your lifestyle and preferences.
Our goal is to increase your understanding of what you eat and how it affects your body and overall fitness. We provide practical, personalized advice to help you lose weight, build muscle, tone up, gain weight, increase athletic performance, or simply educate yourself on general nutrition. Our services include:
Nutrition Fit Consultation
All VIDA members receive a complimentary, one-time appointment where you can discuss your diet and clinical history, goals, relationship with food, and what you’re eating now. Get initial questions answered and leave with several tips to get started on your nutrition journey!
A one-time appointment where you’ll keep a 3-day food journal that we will analyze for calorie, macronutrient, and micronutrient intake. Your dietitian will develop a template using your height, weight, age, goals, and workouts that includes how many calories you need to hit your goals, when you should consume those calories throughout the day, and how many should be proteins, carbohydrates, fats, etc. In this session, you’ll also do a body composition analysis on the InBody machine, a non-invasive, pain-free test that accurately shows changes in fat mass, muscle mass, and body fat percentage. You will leave with a concrete template and a solid understanding of your individual needs as they apply to your individual goals.
These customizable appointments are available for purchase in packs of 3, 6, or 12. Depending on your goals, these can take place every 2 to 6 weeks, and can include anything from using the InBody and reviewing your progress to grocery shopping with your dietitian!
Love the idea of eating better, but overwhelmed with where to begin? Let your dietitian show you the way! Once you’ve undergone a Full Analysis, they can create meal plans that are 100% personalized and specific to your dietary preferences. Meal plans can also help you satisfy those pesky junk food cravings without overindulging. Our dietitians are particularly skilled at taking not-so-healthy foods and working them into your plan creatively. (Think a pizza egg bake for those who can’t give up the pepperonis, or a buffalo chicken bowl for someone who craves wings!)
