What to Expect
In your first visit to Waukee Wellness, your nutrition expert will ask you questions about your dietary habits, exercise, physical activity, energy levels and weight loss goals. Your nutrition expert will weigh you and discuss how diet and nutrition affects your energy, mood, weight and overall health.
During this initial visit, your nutrition counselor will help you set goals for your overall health. Once these goals have been set, dietary and nutritional advice will be discussed at each subsequent meeting.
Special Diets Welcome
People with specialized dietary needs, such as people who eat a vegan or vegetarian diet, stand even more to gain from nutrition counseling. We help people who avoid meats and animal products while still getting the right kind of protein in every meal.
For a person just learning how to eat vegetarian or vegan, we can share tidbits about the right kinds of fruits and vegetables to eat on a daily basis. This helps new vegetarians and vegans develop healthy habits that can ensure a healthy diet in the months and years to come.
