Q: What is the difference between a Dietician and a Nutritionist?

A: Dieticians base their recommendations on the Canada Food Guide. Nutritionists regard each client as bio-chemically unique. This is very important when designing a POA (plan of action). Programs are customized to an individuals needs and are unique to that person. No two individuals are the same so why implement a program based on a one size fits all approach.

Q: What is a Wellness, Lifestyle and Health Coach and can they develop and implement a weight management program?

A: No! They do not possess the necessary education to implement meal plans or supplements. Coaches can however help manage stress, help build self confidence, provide nutritional advice, help work towards career goals, help change unwanted or risky behaviors or implement changes in ones lifestyle. Only a registered nutritionist can develop and implement a weight management programs.

Q: What happens during my first consultation?

A: Typically a series of questions will be asked to determine the needs of the client. Then a POA (plan of action) will be set in place to allow the client to reach there weight management, wellness and/or nutrition goals. Once a plan or program is implemented, follow up appointments will be necessary to monitor progress.

A: That depends on the needs of the client. However, the recommendation is a minimum of three.
