Nutrition, Weight Loss and DPC
Nutrition counseling is a key component of weight loss and overall health and wellness. Not all doctors can help patients make healthy food choices and develop a sustainable eating plan. As a DPC physician and one who likes to run marathons and do triathlons, I have a lot of knowledge I can share about nutrition and diet.
Nutrition counseling can also address any underlying health conditions that may contribute to weight gain, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol. By providing education and support on how to manage these conditions through diet and lifestyle modifications, I can help patients achieve better overall health and improve their chances of successful weight loss.
In my direct primary care model, nutrition counseling is often provided as part of personalized care and treatment plans. Patients can work closely with me, Dr. Eleanor Host, to develop an eating plan that meets their individual needs and preferences, while also supporting their weight loss goals. With ongoing support and guidance, patients can achieve long-term weight loss success and improve their overall health and wellness.
We also offer an online support group for weight loss. It is nice to see other people going through the same journey and share our tips for continued weight loss and nutrition. One of the recent group members has discovered the helpful role of fiber in her diet. She is noticing that she feels full sooner, and stays full for longer and is eating fewer calories and making better food choices. If you would like to join the group, contact us at 419-872-3250 or signup on the website.
