Nutritional Counseling

Proper nutrition is one of the most important factors often overlooked when starting an exercise program. If your goal is weight loss, you must eat fewer calories than you burn. Almost everyone has been on some type of diet at some point in their life. Fad diets will allow an individual to lose weight by restricting calorie intake. However, less than 5% of these individuals are able to keep the weight off. Fad diets simply don't work, they are usually inadequate in nutrients, promote short-term weight loss, and fail to change eating habits for life.
