Nutrition Q & A


Why is nutrition important?

Every cell in your body needs macronutrients for energy, as well as micronutrients, like vitamins and minerals, to help them function. Without proper nutrition, cells don’t get the nutrients they need to thrive, and basic biological functions can struggle. Proper nutrition is important to:

  • Lose weight
  • Rev up your metabolism
  • Support your activity level for sports
  • Help you recover after injury, illness, or surgery
  • Better manage chronic conditions, like diabetes
  • Lower your risk of chronic disease, including heart disease
  • Help with digestive issues, like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

It’s never too late to get started on a good nutrition and dietary plan. Proper nutrition is something you can incorporate into every meal and snack for your family. 

What happens during a nutrition consultation?

At Cardio Metabolic Institute, you have access to a team of highly skilled registered dieticians who are experts in personalizing nutrition plans and determining your ideal nutrient intakes. 

After talking with you about your health history, daily lifestyle, and what you’d like to achieve, your dedicated dietician talks with you about how they can help. Your dietician may offer:

  • OPTIFAST® meal replacement products
  • Meal plans and grocery shopping lists
  • Portion-control counseling 
  • Tips for healthy cooking 
  • Exercise planning 

If you have heart disease or are at risk of developing heart disease, your dedicated dietician can get you started on Cardio Metabolic Institute’s individualized cardiac rehabilitation or cardiac maintenance programs. 

These personalized wellness and plant-based nutrition plans help you improve your heart health, so you can lower your risk of future complications. 

How often do I need to see a registered dietician?

It just depends on your overall health, what you’d like to achieve with your nutrition plan, and whether or not you have any underlying health conditions. 

For instance, if you need to lose weight, your dedicated registered dietician may have you check in once a week for a weigh-in to help hold you accountable.

In general, your registered dietician at Cardio Metabolic Institute wants to see you about once a  month to ensure you’re on the right path. They can counsel you on any changes you need to make or help you create additional menus, recipes, or grocery shopping lists for your family’s needs.
