The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.

Regardless of the athletic diagnosis, many of our clients’ relationships with food are negative. Our philosophy is to maximize nutritional well-being and optimize health. Our role is to guide and support each client through change by using behavior modification and lifestyle enhancement.

Learning about nutrition can benefit both physical and mental health. Education regarding functions of food promotes wise food choices, meal planning, and a healthful overall diet. These habits benefit physical health. In addition, increased knowledge can dispel food fears. Knowing the facts can relieve guilt or worry that one is not eating well. Thus, the diet is enhanced as well as the enjoyment of eating which benefits emotional health.

Instead, one must focus on controlling behaviors. Creating habits that will contribute to appropriate body composition through energy balance will be the focus.
