Initial Consult and Assessment Appointment: 1 to 1.5 hours
Plan for the meeting to be from 1 hour to 1.5 as the initial consult is time for you and your Dietitian to get to know each other. This extra time helps us with establishing a realistic plan and set of goals. Some things we will likely be asking you about: work/life schedules, food preferences, what has worked or not worked for you in the past, health issues, lab results, medications/supplements, physical activity level, what your motivators and what your challenges are. At the end of the initial visit we will have guidelines and goals that together we established for you to work on. Do not expect us to totally change, restrict, revise, or transform you in one visit. Lasting change takes time and effort.
Follow-up visits: 30 minutes to 1 hour
The follow-up visits build on the plan and goals established at your initial visit. You and your RD will discuss what has worked/not worked, make revisions, introduce new information and monitor your progress. Follow up visits are important to keep you on track, motivated, focused and accountable to yourself.
