Adult and children consultations

Individual consultations provide each client with personalized nutritional information and a meal pack tailored to specific nutritional requirements. An adult caregiver must accompany children younger than 16 years. Partner consults are welcomed, and will last slightly longer than the usual first consultation.

First consultation

This is a 60-minute-long consultation. It includes a detailed assessment of medical history, family medical history, blood results (if required, you may be advised to go for required blood tests), lifestyle and eating habits.
A detailed body composition analysis (measuring body weight, fat percentage, muscle mass, visceral fat, growth chart evaluation etc.) is performed and preliminary goals are discussed.
This is followed by a detailed discussion that helps you to understand your condition; and concentrates on the physiology of the underlying condition(s) and how it impacts health, the impact of food and nutrition on health and specific disease conditions and which food modifications need to be considered, the required behavioural change and readiness for change.

Second consultation

This is a 30-minute-long consultation and is scheduled three to four days after the first consultation.
A personalized meal pack which includes various tools, will be presented and discussed. The meal pack is specifically designed to suit each individual's lifestyle and diet requirements and aims to provide a sustainable, manageable strategy. Goals are re-assessed and established.

Follow up consultation(s)

Frequency of these consultations are scheduled according to your preference, and are recommended to help you to monitor your progress.
Lifestyle and dietary changes will be discussed in further detail and food records will be evaluated.  Detailed body composition assessments will be performed and measured against previous results. Goals will be measured and adjusted as required.
Follow up consultations keeps you motivated - and provide assistance to help you overcome barriers so you can reach success. 
Duration of follow up consultations are 20 to 30 minutes long.
