The Benefits of Nutrition Counseling

The Benefits of Nutrition Counseling

Planning your diet is next to impossible in a fast-paced world. You may find that you eat fast food more than once a week in a bid to fit three meals in a day, you might skip meals here and there, or you might snack a lot as a coping mechanism for stress. 

In short, you probably don’t think much about what you’re eating because there’s a lot more to think about. If this applies to you, especially if you experience weight challenges, nutrition counseling can certainly benefit you. 

Here at Sleep Cycle Center in Austin and Lakeway, Texas, expert providers Chad Denman, DDSVidya Pai, MD, and Michael Lund, DDS, provide counseling services to improve your nutrition and health. Here are just a few of the countless benefits that nutrition counseling can bring:

Fewer weight challenges

Whether you’re overweight or underweight, problems with your nutrition are likely at the core. Even if your diet isn’t the only reason you experience weight challenges, improving your nutrition can reduce the effects of any underlying condition that’s contributing to your struggles with weight. 

Our providers at Sleep Cycle Center make sure you’re eating smart portions complete with the macro- and micronutrients your body needs for optimal functioning. You can take part in evidence-based nutrition programs that add nutritional value to your meals. 

A better sleep cycle

Both great nutrition and great sleep offer considerable benefits, such as more energy and better mental function, and the two are more linked than you may realize. Improving your nutrition with nutrition counseling helps regulate your sleep cycle, so you’ll experience fewer sleepless nights and drowsy mornings. 

Managing your diet with nutrition counseling also keeps you energized during the day, so you’re ready for a good night’s sleep by the time you reach bedtime. 

Lower chronic disease risks

Many chronic diseases develop due in part to poor nutrition. While a lack of exercise and your genetics can also contribute, there’s no denying that your diet plays a significant role in keeping you in optimal health. Even if you currently have a chronic disease, nutrition counseling can improve your overall well-being or even put some diseases into remission. 

Better nutrition improves or prevents:

Fewer chronic diseases mean less time in the doctor’s office and fewer health-related costs in your lifetime. 

Mood elevation

The nutrients you consume have a significant influence on how you feel. By engaging in nutrition counseling and improving your diet, you can avoid mood swings and even reduce symptoms of depression. Certain foods support your brain’s production of beneficial neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine, which improve your mood and help you focus. 

If you’re ready to take control of your diet and improve your health and wellness at the same time, schedule an appointment over the phone or online for nutritional counseling at Sleep Cycle Center today.
