If you feel frustrated with diets and out of touch with your physical hunger, we can help guide you to gain self-trust and allow your weight to stabilize without dieting.
Diets and weight loss plans that leave you feeling hungry or exclude food groups are just plain wrong – a healthy diet includes all foods! We are nutrition professionals that specialize in utilizing a non-diet approach to help you re-claim your self-esteem, boost your body-image, and improve your relationship with food.
A typical session includes an initial assessment where you sit down with a Registered Dietitian and discuss your goals. Together you develop a plan that addresses your needs and fits your lifestyle and schedule. Examples of some tools used during the process:
- Individual assessment/plan
- Regular meetings based on your schedule & goals
- Grocery shopping
- Building skills to help you break the diet cycle
Walk and Talk
Joyful movement is just as important as nutrition to those of us here at Preferred Nutrition so we are encouraging clients to join us in an innovative way to combine their nutrition counseling with the peaceful environment at the beach. Walk and Talk Therapy is sweeping the nation because it gets clients moving, naturally elevating endorphins, or “happy hormones.” So come on, join us for a stroll along the Atlantic and boost your mood, discuss your nutrition needs with you dietitian, and naturally make some Vitamin D all at the same time.
Online Therapy (aka Telehealth ) Appointments
Imagine being able to meet with your dietitian during your lunch break, without leaving the office. Or maybe you would prefer for your individual or family session to be in the comfort of your own home, sitting on the couch. Or perhaps a disability or physical challenge limits your mobility and you would prefer to attend from your home.
We are excited to now be offering online appointments for clients whose schedules or locations do not allow them to attend sessions in the office in Jacksonville Beach. We will use an encrypted program to protect your privacy, and meet online using webcams to give you a similar feel to a “face to face” session. These sessions are available to new and existing clients, as long as they are Florida residents and are fee-for-service. Please call for more information regarding your benefits.
