Where do I start?

Meal Planning:

To set yourself up for success it’s important to think ahead.  Heading out for the day without a plan might limit your choices and make it challenging to meet your goals.  Preplanning and cooking ahead can also help with budgeting.

Setting Goals:

Big changes can feel overwhelming. Our SHS nutritionist can work with you to set up tailored goals to optimize your energy.

Challenging the Diet Mentality: 

Fad diets, eliminating entire food groups, and labeling foods as “good” or “bad” is not supported by evidence. Fortunately, there are techniques that can help set the stage for success in maintaining a balanced relationship with food.
