What is nutritional counseling?

Nutritional counseling is medical- and scientific-based advice on food intake. At Boston Direct Health, family physician Dr. Steven Zivich works with patients on an individual basis to assess their diet, eating habits, and overall nutrition. His goal is to help educate you on how to maintain a long-term balanced diet that consists of the right amount of protein, fats, and carbohydrates for your unique body type and lifestyle. To book an appointment with Dr. Zivich, call our office in Boston, MA today.

How does nutritional counseling work?

At Boston Direct Health, nutritional counseling with Dr. Zivich consists of three main steps:

  1. Initial nutritional assessment: Dr. Zivich will discuss your overall medical history and review the foods you've been eating to determine vitamin deficiencies, malnutrition, overnutrition, and more. In some cases, lab work may be ordered.
     
  2. Nutrition diagnosis: This is usually a secondary appointment that focuses on reviewing your lab work and Dr. Zivich's initial findings. It's an in-depth discussion of where you are at nutritionally and involves recommendations on how to improve your daily diet, vitamin absorptions, and energy levels. 
     
  3. Nutritional monitoring and evaluation: This is an ongoing process that involves routine visits with Dr. Zivich and guidance on how to manage your nutritional wellness. It's essentially a long-term commitment to yourself as it focuses on boosting your overall health through nutrition.
