Nutritional coaching is done during a naturopathic consultation.
During your initial naturopathic consultation and assessment, your current diet will be discussed along with any symptoms, health history, and goals. From here, you may be required to complete a seven-day diet diary which will allow for a more in-depth assessment of your current habits. If further laboratory testing is required to understand your unique physiology, it will be discussed at this time.
You will then be provided with a specific dietary plan suited to your unique physiological needs (macro- and micronutrients are considered on this plan). Depending on what best suits your lifestyle, you may be provided with a prescription that outlines a specific meal plan with recipes and/or more generalized recommendations that include foods to eat/avoid, how to assemble a meal, and/or how to select dishes when dining out.
