Nutrition Counseling

Purpose of Nutrition Counseling​

The San Francisco Nutrition Clinic aims to provide personalized nutrition therapy to improve or maintain your good health, or enhance your physical and mental performance. A registered dietitian is the most qualified and appropriately trained nutritionist-expert to take into account your entire medical history and create a personalized plan with you. Medical nutrition therapy is usually completed over a series of appointments. Some of the things you will do during these appointments can include:

  • Share and explore your current diet/practices/food beliefs

  • Learn how nutrition affects (positively or negatively) your physical performance and/or disease/condition

  • Discuss and set individualized nutrition and fitness goals with the guidance of a registered dietitian

  • Develop a personalized meal plan, if needed and desired

  • Learn skills and techniques that will enable you to make needed changes (i.e. label reading, how to balance meals to feel satisfied)

  • Explore what may be holding you back from making the necessary changes and learn techniques to overcome these obstacles

  • Have an opportunity to have your questions answered

"I am a very busy professional in San Francisco and don't have a lot of time to plan and prepare meals. Norae Ferrara showed me, through a short series of one-on-one nutrition counseling sessions, how to make changes that not only lost me weight, but also lowered my cholesterol. Her nutrition advice fit into my life without me missing a step."
