Nutritional Counseling

For a nutritious and well-balanced diet, keep these tips in mind:


  • Variety is key. Vegetables, fruits, whole-grains, and proteins should always be included in a well-balanced diet.
  • Lean meats like fish and poultry are a healthier choice.
  • Dairy products are good to include but reach for the low-fat products.
  • Drink eight 8-ounce glasses (2 liters or half a gallon) of water each day.
  • Sugar, salt, alcohol, trans and saturated fats should be limited.


Nutrients and energy come from healthy foods. Your well-balanced diet should include proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, and water.
