What is Clinical Nutrition for Weight Management?
Clinical nutrition for weight management is nutrition education that helps patients achieve an optimal weight. There is a great deal of misinformation available concerning nutrition, health and weight loss. Eating to achieve optimal health requires education. Evaluating each individual’s health and determining the best way to feed each unique body based on its specific needs is one of the best things anyone can do to maintain weight and avoid health problems now and in the future.
In addition, weight gain does not have to be a normal part of the aging process. Aging does most definitely not mean weight gain! Research has shown people around the world not exposed to a Western diet not only maintain a steady weight well into their senior years, they also avoid heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, and other illnesses sometimes associated with aging.
