The Complete Assessment Package is an all-inclusive package for clients who want to eat healthier and/or lose (or gain) weight, or are seeking to put the symptoms of type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol into remission.
The package includes a one-hour initial assessment appointment, design of your individualized Meal Plan (one-hour of service), as well as a one-hour Nutrition Education Session to go over your Meal Plan with you, and to explain how to accurately estimate serving sizes without weighing and measuring food. I will provide you with multi-page teaching handout that accompanies your Meal Plan and which contains answers to common questions, as well as how to make some Meal Plan substitutions.
The Meal Plan consists of a risk assessment, some dietary and lifestyle recommendations and the Meal Plan itself, which includes how many portions of each food category are available to enjoy at each meal. The categories are exchange-based, which means some portions can be exchanged for others to allow for variety. The Meal Plan is designed in such a way as to be as close to how you like to eat, with the ‘fixes” built in. The food categories include starchy vegetables and unprocessed grain, legumes, fruit, non-starchy vegetables, meat-fish-poultry-egg, cheese, nuts and seeds, as well as fats — but not all categories have portions assigned, depending on the particular type of Meal Plan I design for you. It is not a menu, but a Meal Plan. It will enable you to know how much of each type of food to eat at a meal, but which particular food you choose in that category is up to you. Best of all there is no weighing or measuring. I will teach you how to accurately estimate portion size, so all you need to do is decide what you want to eat!
Pediatrics & Prenatal: There is a small additional charge ($50) for the extra calculations required to assess growth / weight for age and height for age, BMI for age in children and youth, as well as the additional nutrient requirements and calculations to support appropriate weight gain for those who are pregnant.
There are a few optional add-ons to the Complete Assessment Package which are available and which provide additional specialized nutrition education for those requiring it. Doing them as part of the Complete Assessment Package results in a cost savings compared to taking the same teaching on an hourly basis. These include a two-part Iron Option for those with low iron status, a Gout Option, Low or High Potassium Option, Diverticulosis Option, and a Low Oxalate Diet Option.
