Why is diet so important?
Eating a healthy diet is not just about “looking good”. A healthy diet is crucial for helping prevent and manage many chronic conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), diabetes, heart disease, cholesterol and cancer.
Diet and health: the stats
- Half of Canadians over the age of 20 are living with a chronic disease such as heart disease, diabetes, or hypertension.
- Approximately one in ten Canadian children/ adolescents and one in four Canadian adults are obese
- Obesity accounts for 20% of the risk associated with heart attacks.
- 56% of Canadians have an inadequate intake of vegetables and fruit.
Why do I need a professional dietitian?
A dietitian provides evidence-based nutritional information and uses it to create a personalized diet program to improve your health and lifestyle. As Registered Dietitians and co-owners of NutriProCan, Nav Sharma and Lisa Cianfrini offer a unique combination of behavioural coaching and food-science expertise:
Blinded by science?
Not at AMG. Our dietitians explain the benefits of good nutrition and the latest research findings in simple, practical terms that can be applied to your everyday life.
Transform an emotional relationship with food into one that is positive and healthy. Our dietitians will help you identify triggers that may prevent you from maintaining a healthy diet, and help you to overcome them.
Knowledge is power
With the help of a flexible meal plan and the knowledge you gain from the NutriProCan team, you can maintain a nutritious diet with ongoing support if you need it.
We know that eating out and fast-paced work lives can be significant blockers to achieving optimal nutrition. That’s why NutriProCan takes a real-life approach to nutrition, tailoring recommendations to specific needs and ensuring your goals are realistic. This might mean creating a whole food, home-prepared nutrition plan, or simply offering advice on choosing healthy foods while at work or eating out.
Will my health insurance cover it?
Many Canadian workers have employee health insurance which covers the cost of dietitian services. If your health benefits cover doesn’t extend that far, speak to your employer, union rep, or HR department. According to Dietitians of Canada, lifestyle interventions from dietitians can reduce health-related lost productivity in the workplace by 64%. Furthermore, they can decrease disability days by 87%. So it certainly pays employers to offer the services of a Registered Dietitian in their employee health benefits plans!
