What is Nutritional Counseling in Celebration FL?

A chiropractor not only treats musculoskeletal pain but also understands the importance of nutrition in maintaining good physical and mental health. Your Orlando FL chiropractor can help you achieve nutritional goals by providing counseling and personalized dietary programs addressing your unique health needs.

Is It Possible to Start Eating Healthier Without Feeling Deprived?

Changing eating habits with help of nutritional counseling in Celebration FL is comparable to taking small jumps over puddles instead of trying to take one big leap over a big lake. In other words, your chiropractor won’t remove all your guilty pleasures from your diet at once. Instead, he’ll show you how to start moving closer to your nutritional goals by replacing that breakfast doughnut with a whole grain English muffin spread with natural strawberry preserves. For lunch and dinner, you might eat what you normally eat but don’t backslide on the healthier choices you make for breakfast.

We know you’ve heard it a hundred times before but since it is so important to helping you achieve your nutritional goals, we are going to say it again–drink more water!  When your body is sufficiently hydrated, it not only functions better but more easily absorbs vitamins and minerals from the food you eat as digested food passes through your intestines. If you tend to avoid water because it doesn’t have any taste, your Orlando Fl chiropractor will recommend jazzing up your glass of water with a lemon or lime wedge.

Nutritional Counseling–What It’s Not

If you think going completely vegetarian will help you achieve your nutritional goals, consider the importance of protein. Meats contain protein, a nutrient vital to cell structure, growth and production of essential enzymes and hormones. When your body lacks enough proteins, you could suffer symptoms such as delayed wound healing, chronic headaches, hair thinning and lack of energy. If you’re not sure about what you need to eat or supplement your diet with to maintain good health, Dr. MacDermott offers professional nutritional counseling to Celebration and Orlando FL residents who want guidance and support.

We Make Ditching Snacks Easy

Dr. MacDermott also understands that everybody has a love-hate relationship with snacks. We know that bag of corn chips isn’t nutritious but it’s what we crave–salty, crunchy and just plain satisfying. But guess what? You can satisfy that urge to crunch and taste saltiness without consuming empty calories by substituting no-nutrition snacks with healthy, yummy snacks rich in vitamins and minerals. An important part of your nutritional counseling program is learning how to satisfy cravings with healthy snacks that won’t add unnecessary calories and fat to your diet.
