THE BALANCED EATS APPROACH
Your Health Matters
Balanced Eats is centered on a 4 pronged approach.
We believe that nutrition education is an important pillar to success. Understanding the “why” behind science-based diet recommendations is an empowering tool! At Balanced Eats we strive to make nutrition education easy to understand, relevant, & fun. You will have the expertise to maintain your successes long after our time together.
When trying to achieve a goal or different result, change is necessary. Our aim is to develop a plan so that the what, when, where, why and how of eating are all contributing towards your personal goals. In addition, we will incorporate physical activity, sleep, & stress management into our plan - as they all play a role in appetite hormones & metabolism.
While eating may not seem like a mental exercise, it truly can be. We will learn to make peace with food, our bodies, and ourselves. At Balanced Eats there are no “do not eat” lists or methods that involve starving/depriving. On the contrary, we will learn to nurture and listen to our bodies - cravings included. By ditching the idea of “perfection” & “all or nothing”, we will take a direct and balanced approach to success!
We take a comprehensive, individualized approach to meet your specific goals & needs. Instead of focusing on a single metric, we will review energy, mood, satisfaction, labs, body circumference, weight, and how you’re feeling to assess our progress.
Why Balanced Eats?
If only a kale shot in the morning or a little apple cider vinegar could solve our problems - unfortunately, like many other fads and fad diets, it isn’t that simple. While some aspects of fad diets merit truth, they often lack key food groups and balance to remain sustainable. With the help of a registered dietitian, you will be able to make meaningful changes that can last you a lifetime. At Balanced Eats, we offer a multitude of dietitian services, wrapped up in a unique package model, to provide our clients the help they need on their schedule.

BARIATRIC SURGERY COUNSELING
Bariatric weight loss surgery requires dramatic lifestyle changes. Patients stand to benefit greatly from adopting basic changes toward healthful eating before surgery. It is anything but a quick fix for morbid obesity. In fact, surgery is little more than a tool that works best in conjunction with specific diet and lifestyle changes to facilitate weight loss and improved health.
Geriatric nutrition applies nutrition principles to delay effects of aging and disease to aid in the management of the changes commonly associated with growing older.
