Nuritional advice by Vitafuzion.

Vitafuzion has partnered up with Juanita Singh  – a Registered Dietitian to bring you nutritional advice directly to your home and family. After all, a healthy lifestyle is about consistency and maintenance and although your monthly infusions contribute to your overall health and well-being, long-term lifestyle changes are required to live your best life, sustain weight loss and extend your lifespan.

THE PROCESS

step-1

Step 1

Our dietician will do an Anthropometric measurement ie height weight and centimeter measurements.

A food history and frequency audit will take place – here assessments aim to assist Juanita in calculating kilojoules being consumed and what kilojoules will eventually be required. Chronic medication as well as macro and micro nutrient consumptions will also be assessed. 

Your weight and any existing medical conditions will also be addressed – such as diabetes, cholesterol, food allergies, gastrointestinal disorders, etc.  Your cultural and religious eating patterns will also be taken into account

An intense discussion around food will take place and, with your permission, Juanita will go through your grocery cupboard with you.

Routine follow-ups will take place to monitor weight loss, exercise routines and take measurements.
