Improve Your Quality of Life by Eating Healthier!
Nutrition is the science of how the nutrients you consume interact with the body to influence maintenance, growth, reproduction, overall health, and disease. In short, the old saying “You are what you eat”, is very true.
That is why Dr. For Life’s team of medical physicians is so dedicated to helping you foster a healthy relationship with food. One that includes cooking for yourself and enjoying delicious, healthy meals, even Meals To Go.
When we say diet, we don’t mean any of those fly by night fad “diets” you’ve read about online or in magazines. We mean a complete overhaul of the way you view food, shop for groceries, and understand the nutritional components of every meal you put into your body. There’s no one thing that makes a diet work, and the medical community’s knowledge regarding diets change constantly.
You’ll remember that people were once told fats are among the worst things you can put into your body; now we know that some fats are actually very healthy and important components of a well-balanced diet!
When you work with our medical nutrition experts, you’ll know you’re getting recommendations backed up by medicine and science that are proven to promote healthier lifestyles and improved weight loss.
Nutrition Programs and Dietary Counseling
At Doctor for Life, we have a wide range of resources to help set you on the path to better eating. Our primary nutrition program offerings include:
To help get you started on your weightloss journey, our clinical dietitian will meet with you to discuss your current lifestyle and eating habits. In consultation with the doctor, the dietitian will develop an individualized nutritional diet plan that will help you eat healthier and lose weight.
Getting into the habit of buying and cooking healthy food is an important lifestyle change to make your weight loss sustainable, but it can be difficult to know where to start. With culinary classes from our executive chef and registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN), you can learn basic nutrition and how to prepare, cook, and serve meals. We have specialty classes ranging from grocery shopping and knife skills to ketogenic and Mediterranean cooking. Single classes started at $20, and series start at $60.
Healthy Meals To Go:
At Doctor for Life, we understand you’re not always in a position to prepare a full meal for yourself or your family. When work and other responsibilities get in the way, there are options. We provide effortless, balanced, portion-controlled meals to eat at home, office, or school, all made from premium ingredients without preservatives and developed through collaboration with our doctor, nutrition expert, and chef. Meals range from $5 to $12.
Sometimes, simply changing your diet isn’t enough to turn around serious weight concerns. That’s when we treat nutrition and diet as a clinical issue, as well as a dietary issue. Meal replacements are specifically prescribed by our doctor, based on an individual’s metabolic profile. These meal replacements are low in calories, rich in nutrients, and designed to treat root causes of any weight problem. Products start at $3.
If you are struggling with your health and weight, it may be time to try something other than the latest diet fad, or simply wishing the things you tried had worked. Doctor For Life can provide access to a proven system of overall health that can do so much more than help you lose weight—it can help you gain health.
