Dietary Services Q&A

What are dietary services?

 

Dietary services are customized approaches to help you eat the right foods, in the ideal quantities, at the correct times. At Cranford L. Scott MD, Inc, Dr. Scott and the experienced specialists provide dietary services to all adults who need help with their nutrition and health. 

When might I need dietary services?

Dietary services are often part of Dr. Scott’s whole-body medical approach. Some of the different times he might recommend dietary services include:

Weight loss

Weight loss is much easier when you learn how your body processes different foods. Some foods keep you full longer and give you more energy, so a weight loss plan focuses on those foods alongside portion control. With this approach, you can achieve a healthy weight without suffering.

Disease prevention

Eating the right foods and managing portion sizes can help you prevent many chronic conditions like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, and heart disease. A healthy diet can significantly lower your risk of more than a dozen types of cancer, including uterine, breast, and colorectal cancers. 

Chronic conditions

Some of the most common chronic conditions, like diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure, are strongly linked to what you eat. Dietary services can help you make changes and better manage your condition. You may even be able to get healthy without medication. 

 

Dietary services are important at any age, but they’re especially valuable as you age since older adults have a higher risk of many health problems. 

What can I expect from dietary services?

 

Dr. Scott personalizes your diet plan based on your medical needs. Some general principles that healthy diets usually follow include eating lean meats, healthy grains, fruits, and veggies. 

About 90% of Americans eat too much sodium, so you’ll learn ways to get delicious flavor without overdoing the salt. You’ll also learn how to change your shopping and cooking habits, focusing on more fresh foods that you prepare yourself with far fewer processed foods. 

You can still eat well when you follow a new diet plan, but you do have to adjust the way you think about food. Dr. Scott can help you make positive changes that will serve you well for the rest of your life.
