Nutrition Counseling Q & A

What is a healthy diet?

A healthy diet is low in fat and includes all of the vitamins, minerals, proteins, and carbohydrates your body needs. Good nutrition focuses on:

  • Eating a wide range of foods including fruits, vegetables, and whole grains
  • Drinking lots of water
  • Limiting your intake of sugar, salt, alcohol, saturated fat, and trans fat

If you’re struggling with proper nutrition or you’d like to lose weight, Dr. Leibowitz offers nutrition counseling to help you achieve a healthy weight.

What is nutrition counseling?

Nutrition counseling helps you establish healthy eating patterns. Many people are able to lose weight but, are not necessarily healthy.  For example, your body needs a certain number of calories, carbohydrate, protein, vitamins, and minerals each day. Dr. Leibowitz determines your caloric needs based on your:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Weight
  • Activity level
  • Medical conditions

When you make an appointment for nutrition counseling, the medical team goes over your condition, health history, and tailors a dietary plan for you.

What is WFPBD?

WFPBD stands for Whole Food Plant Based Diet.  A WFPBD is a type of nutritional program to help you lose weight by consuming whole, plant based foods.  The plan contains a proper amount of protein, fatty acids, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals for safe and fast weight loss.

How does a WFPBD diet work?

When you’re on a WFPBD, you not only are not calorie restricted, you are encouraged to eat when you are hungry. The large variation of foods consumed lead to an abundance of nutrition, more than adequate amount of protein along with a large amount of antioxidants and phytonutrients.

If you’re seeking an effective solution to manage your weight and health, Dr. Leibowitz offers nutrition counseling and targeted meal plans. To find out more, call the practice today, or schedule a consultation online.
