When you think about your life as an older adult, what do you picture?
For myself, I picture a healthy brain, hiking in the woods well into my 90’s, showing up for grandchildren, actively engaged with friends, working in my garden and cooking amazing meals from scratch.
I picture functional longevity, not just living longer.
If you are anything like me, you don’t just want more days, you want more days where you are fully functional and doing all the activities you love.
Improving your diet and lifestyle habits NOW can help you achieve the state of functional longevity you want as an older adult.
Science is now showing that the lifestyle choices we make today matter as they will likely show up in our health tomorrow.
A functional nutritionist can help.
Functional nutrition counseling can help you achieve your healthy aging goal by helping you focus on the specific diet and lifestyle habits that support your unique physiology, the things that matter most for your functional longevity.
A Typical Functional Nutrition Counseling Session
Here’s what what you can expect during the first functional nutrition counseling session with me:
- A deep look into your health history, your eating habits and your lifestyle habits.
- Discuss any health symptoms you may be experiencing and explore root causes.
- Discuss how to select an evidence-based food strategy for your bio-individual needs.
Personal Eating Strategy
Imagine setting off on a long road trip with no plan, no map, no GPS and no idea of where you’re going.
You’re likely to take a few wrong turns, get frustrated; you might even want to quit.
Transitioning into eating a whole-food diet is a lot like that road trip. Without a solid plan or strategy, it’s easy to get off track and want to give up.
But with a roadmap and some clear directions, you’re much more likely to reach your destination—feeling good in your body again, reaching your happy weight and advancing in age feeling like you can still enjoy all the things you love. In essence, you will reach a state of functional longevity.
Through nutrition counseling sessions, I help clients create a personalized eating and lifestyle strategy that meets them where they are and supports their health and functional longevity goals.
If I live to be 100, I’d like to improve my odds of having each and every day with as much health, vitality and quality as possible.
The foods that we put in our bodies, the things we do and experience every single day, these external inputs to our system all affect our functional longevity.
A functional nutrition counselor can help you achieve healthy aging by helping you make the right food and lifestyle choices for your unique you.
