Nutritional Counseling Q & A
What is the role of nutritional counseling in heart health?
The team at Coral Gables Cardiology Associates, P.A. believes that a healthy lifestyle can do more than prevent and treat heart disease; it can also empower you to live a long and energized life.
Nutrition is one part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but it’s not just about the food you eat. Factors such as physical activity, sleep patterns, and stress management also play a role in your overall health and the quality of your life.
By taking a wellness approach that encompasses nutrition, the practitioners at Coral Gables Cardiology Associates, P.A. can address various aspects of your life that affect your cardiovascular and overall health.
How does nutritional counseling improve my heart health?
Whether you’re determined to prevent heart disease or you’ve been diagnosed with a cardiovascular condition, lifestyle changes build the foundation of your treatment.
When making lifestyle changes, however, it’s important to have a knowledgeable guide and to take a practical approach.
Some patients only need one session to refocus and refine their efforts. Others embark on a longer program with frequent consultations to help motivate them and adjust their lifestyle plans as needed.
Whatever path you choose, the team at Coral Gables Cardiology Associates, P.A. knows that wellness is a journey. They’re dedicated to supporting each patient as they work to improve their health.
What type of nutritional and lifestyle support will I receive?
Your physician works directly with our nutritionist to address your wellness concerns. They evaluate the results of their medical examination, lab work, and other testing. For example, resting metabolic rate testing is available to help define your specific metabolism and fine-tune your caloric balance.
Then they consider all the information, including your health goals, and develop a personalized lifestyle plan that’s reasonable, achievable, and based on a sound understanding of the science and evidence-based research.
Throughout your care, you work closely with our nutritionist, who believes that sustainable lifestyle habits are the key to living well and that everyone deserves to feel confident in their own skin.
