Nutrition Q&A

What is nutrition?

Nutrition consists of the foods and drinks you put into your body, including total calories, vitamins, minerals, protein, carbohydrates, fiber, dietary fat, and more. Getting the nutrients your body needs (in the right amounts) is the key to staying healthy and reducing your risk of illnesses and chronic diseases.

What are the benefits of proper nutrition?

Some of the many benefits you can expect when getting proper nutrition include:

  • High energy levels
  • Healthy body weight
  • Low chronic disease risks
  • Strong immune system
  • Minimal body fat
  • More lean body mass
  • Increased satiety

Getting proper nutrition on a regular basis helps you look better, feel better, and maintain a better quality of life. It reduces your risk of fatigue, unplanned weight gain, illnesses, and diseases. 

What does nutrition counseling consist of?

Nutrition counseling at KairWell Weight and Wellness includes sessions with highly trained weight-management experts. Counseling sessions consist of mindful eating, custom meal plans and menus, DietMaster Pro apps for meal plans and logs, intensive behavioral therapy, incremental behavior changes, and much more. 

Your specialist discusses your medical history and symptoms you may have. They check your vital signs, complete a physical exam and blood tests if needed, and discuss your lifestyle and food preferences. Your provider asks questions about your usual intake before personalizing a nutrition plan that’s best for you.

What should I expect during medical weight loss?

If weight loss is your goal, it’s important to eat fewer calories and get regular exercise. Your weight loss specialist could recommend you follow a specific meal plan, take dietary supplements, use weight loss medication, or follow an exercise program they design specifically for you. 

If you need weight loss surgery to help you lose a significant amount of weight, KairWell Weight and Wellness offers bariatric surgery through their trusted medical partners. KairWell Weight and Wellness providers facilitate the procedure by meeting with you before and after weight loss surgery.

Your specialist can make changes to your nutrition plan as needed to keep you as healthy as possible and reduce your risk of medical complications.
