At RoundTable Wellness, we know that eating and making the “right” food choices can become a burden and a significant source of anxiety. Countless people suffer from poor body image and weight stigma in our toxic culture of dieting and fat shaming. This in turn can impact one’s physical health, mental health, and overall quality of life, but we also know there is hope for a life free of chronic dieting and body dissatisfaction — a life of true physical and emotional wellbeing.
At RoundTable Wellness, we aim to help our clients mend their relationship with food and their bodies. We help clients to recognize when their eating behaviors are influenced by emotion or false perceptions. We teach our clients the science of nutrition and health, while acknowledging that food is more than physical nourishment. Food is cultural and social. We connect over food because that’s part of human nature. Eating is one way we take care of our body, an act of self-care. Through intuitive eating practice, we can tap into our knowing of what, when, and how much to eat for nourishment and pleasure. Cultivating a healthy relationship with food is a step towards loving and trusting our body.
Dietitians are experts on providing practical information to help individuals modify their food choices and eating habits to promote a healthier lifestyle. Dietitians give client-centered care; whether you don’t know where to begin, or are well versed in nutrition and just need a hand, we are able to assess your needs and get you on the road to manageable weight loss and improved health and wellness.
Lifestyle changes are the most challenging done alone. Research shows that individuals pursuing a healthier lifestyle without any social support are much less likely to succeed. Families, couples, and friends who learn together and adopt new habits together are much more likely to succeed together. For this reason, we are happy to counsel pairs or families together.
Eighty-six percent of all health care spending in 2010 was for people with one or more chronic medical conditions, the majority of which can be managed or prevented with dietary and other lifestyle changes. The average employed American adult spends over forty hours per week at work or doing work-related activities—Thus, it makes sense to invest time in effective nutrition education in the workplace. RoundTable corporate presentations connect the dots between health screenings and adopting new behavior changes.
RoundTable Wellness offers a variety of wellness programs tailored to individuals seeking guidance on weight or disease management, or education for a specific nutrition topic. Individuals can sign up for an educational series or support group specific to their needs as they are offered.
