Nutrition Audit and Personalized Supplementation Evaluation for Individuals Seeking Support for Fertility, Preconception, and Prenatal Nutrition
Not sure that your eating habits and supplementation plan are helping or hindering your goals? We offer what we like to call a “Dietary Audit”. Instead of a survey that produces automatically-generated results, the nutrition audit allows you to input information about your diet, supplements, and lifestyle, and a registered dietitian will personally assess your practices and provide you with an action plan with a food-first focus. Areas of focus include but are not limited to:
Fertility challenges (including ovulatory infertility, male factor infertility, and infertility undergoing assisted reproductive technology)
Preconception for men and women (recommended for everyone at least three months before trying to conceive)
This is an alternative to traditional counseling for clients who want the support of a nutrition professional but can not bear to have ONE MORE APPOINTMENT.
Don’t have the time, expendable income, or patience to pursue a counseling session?
Is the nutrition information you received from your doc too general?
Are you uneasy getting your nutrition information off of instagram?
Do you want someone to take a close look at your current dietary practices and provide personalized recommendations to help support your conception or pregnancy goals?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, than a Dietary Audit is a perfect option. It is completed online at your convenience. You do not have to take time out of your workday, since this option is all completed online via forms and online messaging. Please note: I am only able to work with clients residing in the USA.
one-time audit for a single client: $30
one-time audit for a couple (two audits…one for each) and a PDF version of Fueling Male Fertility: $55 ($70 value)
