General Nutrition & Dietary Consultation
This service is part of a care programme prescribed by a doctor or initiated at the request of an individual. It includes assessment of eating habits, negotiation of the goals of dietary care, implementation of a strategy and follow-up of the individual’s nutritional progress for educational, preventive or therapeutic purposes. Let’s help you improve your overall health and well-being! Well-being and energy levels are extremely important after all.
Depending on the aim of a consultation, our dietary management requires defined procedures for coordination between health professionals and continuity of care.
- We define the content of a dietary consultation service, how an interview should be conducted, and what specific elements are needed in each dietary care programme.
- We describe the current tools for data collection and for the dietitian’s work.
- We identify trace-ability data for nutritional care in the patient’s record.
- We define procedures for coordination between health professionals to ensure continuity of care. For instance, if a client/patient be willing, we could refer for him/her for a moderate-cost medical or surgical procedure with our international healthcare partners at super specialist hospitals and facilitatory assistance.
Weight Control (Loss or Gain) Consultation
This can be a real struggle and pain. Permanent weight loss can be even tougher. Our practices and ideals are based off of new and exciting weight loss research and actual life experiences. We are confident and know the secrets to real long term weight loss. If you are looking for someone who will teach you about “fad-diets” or diets of any kind, then we are NOT the nutritionists for you.
We do not believe in diets of any kind (well, except “The Hallelujah Diet“). They cause numerous metabolism problems and fail almost always, causing you to put the weight back on…plus some! This leads to destructive eating patterns like – binge eating. I do believe, however, in lifestyle change! Our service adapts unique methods that will allow you to FINALLY reach your weight control goals once and for all.
Diet Therapy Recipe Formulation
“Today, more than 95% of all chronic disease is caused by food choice, toxic food ingredients, nutritional deficiencies and lack of physical exercise.” ~ Mike Adams
This service offers the careful selection of functional food items (These Functional foods have shown to have a potentially positive effect on health beyond basic nutrition) and the administration of these foods in proportions that makes them most bio-available to the human body via tailored recipes suitable to client / patient health conditions. For instance, the DASH diet for hypertensive patients, bland diet for ulcer patients etc.
Infant and Complementary Feeding Recipe
Nutrition of infants and young children is critical for their survival, cognitive development and growth not only during the childhood but for their whole life span. Hence, adequate and regular complementary feeding of infants with home based foods from the age of six months, while continuing breastfeeding, is crucial for their healthy growth and development.
We seek to popularize low cost nutritious foods particularly for vulnerable groups namely infants, young children, pregnant and lactating women. A number of nutritious recipes from locally available food materials are promoted by the Diet234 Team in respective areas.
As inadequate feeding of infants is one of the main causes of child under nutrition, it is hoped that our recipe booklet with low cost nutritious recipes for infants and young children will promote complementary feeding of infants from six months of age while continuing breastfeeding, to meet the needs of the growing baby. This booklet of Instant Infant Meal from staple cereals and pulses will be particularly useful for the new mother, the nanny or the field personnel of an Integrated Child Development Services Scheme and all those engaged in promoting nutrition and health of infants and young children.
