Nutrition Consultation

A nutritional consultation involves building a detailed picture of your lifestyle, eating habits, medical history and any concerns you may have about your health. With this information, we can work together to form an eating plan that suits your needs, your lifestyle and your daily commitments. You will come away with a tailor-made plan of action knowing exactly what you need to do next.


  • One-hour consultation: $185

Nutrition Follow-Up

Follow up visits are scheduled to review your progress in making lifestyle changes and meeting your goals, modify the meal plan as needed, and learn behavior modification techniques to assist you in changing your eating habits.


  • 30-minute follow-up consultation: $90

  • 45-minute follow-up consultation: $130
