Nutrition is a much-debated topic and scientific discoveries in this area are constantly evolving, so the advice of a knowledgeable expert is of fundamental importance. The scientific discoveries of the last decades have led to a radical shift in the optimal dietary model for human health, compared to that of 50 years ago.
Therefore, many people are often confident they are “eating well” but perhaps consume foods with a pro-inflammatory effect with a certain frequency that make it much more difficult, for example, the treatment of chronic or recurrent inflammatory diseases, from arthritis to neck pain to frequent muscle strains.
Nowadays, every type of “trendy” diet is sold as the most effective and thousands of people try do-it-yourself diets, often at the expense, in the long term, of their health.
A well-trained and informed expert regarding the latest news in the food sector is essential to find one’s optimal diet, which leads to a greater state of vitality and well-being, as well as health.
The goal is to place the importance of food education and an approach to food without too many patterns and obsessions at the center of every nutritional visit.
The nutritionist biologist tries to move away from the concept of diet understood as pure caloric restriction and division of foods into “good” or “bad”, which result in a disproportionate increase in attention to weight, fitness and calories.
Each path is customized taking into account the needs of individual patients.
Listening to your own signs of hunger and satiety, being present while eating and moving away from the concept of cheating helps you to deal with your diet with more happiness and freedom.
During the first evaluation, the following are performed:
- medical history with reference to present or previous pathologies diagnosed by the general practitioner
- diet history
- history of physical activity
Anthropometric parameters (weight, height, circumferences) are detected and bioimpedance analysis (BIA) is performed.
The custom nutrition plan is processed in 4-5 working days and is sent by email.
Check-ups are carried out to verify adherence to the nutritional plan, overcome any difficulties and persevere in achieving the objectives. It includes bioimpedance analysis (BIA) and the design of a new nutritional plan.
Nutritional counseling is ideal for those who do not need a custom nutritional plan, but want to find solutions to specific dietary needs (e.g. difficulty in combining their lifestyle with a healthy diet, re-learning to listen to signals of hunger and satiety, fear of not knowing how to manage nutrition in case of allergies/intolerances).
It allows to evaluate the body composition of the person under examination (nutritional, muscular and hydro-electrolytic status) giving an accurate estimate of fat mass, lean mass, active cell mass, total and extracellular body water.
It is performed with a piece of very precise machinery, gold standard of biompedentiometry (Akern BIA 101).
