No. I consider this work that of a registered dietician (or equivalent). However, I am capable and comfortable informing clients of some basic things:
-healthy choices based on food groups
-appropriate serving sizes
-critical fat intake (omega-3’s for example)
-how to figure out basic daily caloric requirements, etc…
Yes and no. We (my husband and I) perform metabolic testing using New Leaf. Part of this program is a module called ‘EnergySmart’ which allows people to enter goals, preferences and medical conditions and allergies, as applicable. We offer people access to this program.
Since we are not certified in the field of nutrition, we do not give meal plans or offer advice beyond our scope of certification.
