What to expect during a Dietary Initial Assessment
What is the role of Nutrition?
Nutrients fuel the body from basic functions to everyday tasks to athletic performance. Food provides energy from carbohydrates, proteins and fats, which pair with vitamins and minerals to fuel our bodies and keep everything working properly. Because of this fine balance, a proper varied diet is incredibly important to helping optimize your health and wellness!

What can I expect when seeing a Dietitian?
Nutrition is a discipline that sees best results with open communication and continuing follow-ups. Mikaela offers a variety of services which can be tailored to best fit your wants and needs:
During the first visit, Mikaela will sit down with you and collect a thorough history to learn about your current eating habits and lifestyle - the more she understands and knows about you, the better she can help! She will then offer feedback on your current diet, help you to set realistic goals, and provide recommendations to get you started. After this, an individualized nutrition plan will also be formed just for you.
