Eating a diet that’s nutritionally right for you reduces risks to your health and can help prevent you from developing chronic diseases, including:
- Type 2 diabetes
- Heart disease
- Heart attack
- Weight challenges
- Deficiency in brain function
If you already have one or more of these conditions, nutritional counseling can teach you what foods complement your treatment plan and may even help reverse your condition. At the very least, good nutrition can minimize symptoms and discourage complications.
Even if you are healthy, you can benefit from nutritional counseling. Following a healthy diet ensures you have optimal energy, sleep better, perform better athletically, experience mental clarity, and maintain a strong immune system.
