How a dietitian can help

Nutrition Counseling is an assessment of medical history and dietary intake performed by a Registered Dietitian.  The dietitian then provides professional advice to help you make decisions about the food you eat.  At Summerfield Custom Wellness, we take time to learn about your current lifestyle and nutrition goals.  Then, we will help you develop a plan with action steps, realistic timelines, and strategies for overcoming barriers.
