Nutrition: Food for
Food is one of lifes necessities. When struggling with weight issues,
it often becomes both friend and foe you cant live without it, and
youre having a problem living with it. Our food choices are often determined
by factors such as childhood habits, time constraints, and the media. By working
with behavior management techniques and nutritional guidance, you can learn to
make food better choices at social, family, and professional events.
Nutritionists at the OCC work individually with patients to monitor and assess
food choices, identify trigger foods and situations, and problem-solve ways to
achieve healthier diets. Individualized meal plans are patient-driven. We will
integrate your lifestyle, likes, and dislikes to develop plans and strategies
to promote healthier food selections no matter what type of plan you desire.
We work at increasing your nutrition knowledge, exploring available products,
and promoting variety of choice.
By working with behavior management techniques and nutritional guidance, you
can learn to make better food choices at social, family, and professional events.
We also offer liquid diet programs for people who feel that it may be easier
for them to attain their weight loss goals with less food choices.
