Nutrition counseling is an ongoing process in which a health professional, works with an individual to assess his or her usual dietary intake and identify areas where change is needed. The nutrition counselor provides information, educational materials, support, and follow-up to help the individual make and maintain the needed dietary changes.
The goal of nutrition counseling is to help a person make proper nutrition choices to maintain health and well being. For people with mental disorders, dietary changes may be needed to promote healthier eating, to adopt a therapeutic diet, or to avoid nutrient-drug interactions. Nutrition counseling is an integral part of treatment for persons with eating disorders or chemical dependencies. The nutritionist and individuals work together to assess current eating patterns and identify areas where change is needed.
