The foods you eat greatly affect your metabolism, energy levels, digestive function and overall feeling of health and wellness. Everyone has different fuel requirements based on body composition, age, height, weight, activity level and overall health. Many of our patients need help to lose weight during menopause or have other health concerns that necessitate a revamp of their current diet and nutrition habits. At Progressive Medical Center each nutritional consultation you have will be individualized to fit your specific needs.

- Specific eating plans
- Food allergies

Help Us, Help You With Your Nutrition
In order to assist in achieving your healthy weight loss goals we need to know your current eating patterns. We ask that every patient complete a food diary for two weeks prior to your nutrition consultation. For best follow these tips and guidelines to keep accurate records of your food intake. Try not to alter your “normal” eating patterns during these days.
- Record food as soon as possible after eating
- Be as specific as possible
- Provide as much information as possible when describing your food items
Also, include brand names, information from the nutritional label and ingredients will be very helpful (especially when describing things like specialty items, products from health food stores, ethnic foods, homemade foods and restaurant items).
