Very often it is also important to explore emotional eating, since food is often used to provide immediate gratification. We will work to identify the triggers and empower you with tools to make informed choices not only for the period of weight loss but for long term weight management.

Lifestyle diseases

Obesity can lead to abnormal cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, elevated uric acid levels (gout) and fatty liver (NASH). Correcting dietary habits is the cornerstone of treatment for these lifestyle diseases.

Everyone knows that food habits and diabetes have a strong connection. People are different in terms of the amount of insulin their body produces, their tolerance to carbohydrates, their activity level and the kind of medication they are on. For this reason, pre-written diets just don’t work. The dietary prescription for diabetes is not a list of Don’ts. By tweaking dietary habits, we are able to reduce the medication / insulin dosage. Nutrition intervention also helps delay and control the progression of diabetes and its complications – such as chronic kidney disease.

Digestive diseases

What you put in your mouth of course affects the digestive system – be it acidity, reflux (GERD), IBD or food intolerances.
