Nutrition Q & A

What is nutrition?

Nutrition encompasses the foods you take in, how your body digests and uses those nutrients, and the ways your diet supports your health or contributes to disease. Making smart food choices that meet your daily nutritional needs is essential if you want to thrive.

When might I need nutritional counseling?

Even if you follow a balanced diet, you can still be at risk of developing a nutritional deficiency if you:

  • Engage in intense athletics or competitive sports
  • Have a chronic health condition
  • Live with daily stress or anxiety
  • Are sick or injured
  • Have frequent allergies
  • Develop recurrent infections

In all these cases, your body uses more calories and requires more nutrients than normal. Nutritional counseling gives you support and information, whether you need to prevent or treat a deficiency or you simply want help with meal planning for optimal nutrition.
