What about Meal Plans, Exchanges, Measuring, and Calorie Counting?:
Our goal is help patients connect with their own hunger, fullness, and satisfaction cues. For this reason, our goal is to move away from eating that is based on counting and focus instead on Iearning to honor your personal nutritional needs. This is called Intuitive Eating.
*We do NOT offer diet or weight loss programming. Instead, our evidence-based interventions focus on mindful and/or intuitive eating and lifestyle choices which may or may not result in weight loss.
