Nutrition Q & A

What are the benefits of nutrition?

Every single cell in your body thrives on the nutrients you get through the foods and supplements you consume. Because your body relies on a steady supply of macronutrients (like carbohydrates and proteins), as well as vitamins and minerals (known as micronutrients), following a balanced nutrition plan is important. Good nutrition can:

  • Stabilize your weight
  • Keep your bowels healthy
  • Enhance your immune function
  • Improve your moods and boost your energy levels
  • Lower your risk of chronic issues, including high cholesterol

Even though everyone needs the same types of nutrients, each individual needs them in varying amounts and at different times. The best way to find out how to get all of the nutrients into your diet is to meet with a Registered Dietitian. 

How can a Registered Dietitian help me?

At Functional, Integrative and Obesity Medicine, you can meet with Kathleen, a highly experienced Registered Dietitian who specializes in research-driven nutrition plans. Kathleen partners with your physician to ensure you follow a balanced nutrition plan that caters to your overall health and any underlying health issues.

  • Lose or maintain your weight
  • Balance carbs, fats, and proteins
