At Naples Vitality in Naples, FL, we know that nutrition can be challenging, especially if you don’t know exactly what you should be eating. That’s where we come in. We can create a nutrition program that’s right for you that includes all the food you need to support your health, reach your goals, and feel your best.
Choosing a Nutrition Program: What Does Good Nutrition Really Mean?
It can be confusing to try to overhaul your nutrition and diet because there are so many voices out there telling you that their way is the best way. With so many different fad diets and weight loss techniques available, it’s hard to know which will work, which is safe, and which will help you maintain a healthy lifestyle long-term. The fact is, not many of these diets will support your goals and your health long-term.
Fad Diet vs. Lifestyle
Anything that could be deemed a fad diet rather than a lifestyle change is most likely something that you will not be able to maintain over time. When it comes down to it, good nutrition is simply a choice. It’s asking yourself the question of whether the foods you are eating will support your health, nourish your body, promote overall wellness, and help you reach your goals long term.
However, understanding what good nutrition is doesn’t make it any easier to always choose the right foods and make the right nutritional choices on a daily basis. Sometimes, you need guidance from someone who understands your goals and the foods you need to eat and eliminate to reach those goals.
Nutritional Plans Can Change Everything
That’s where we come in. We offer various nutritional plans that can take the guesswork out of determining what good nutrition really is. Our experts can help design a customized nutritional program that will help you overhaul your current diet, replace those unhealthy foods and nutritional habits with ones that will support your body, and in doing so, create a new lifestyle that is easily maintainable long-term.
Choosing the Right Program
At Naples Vitality, we offer several different diet plans, which essentially are eating strategies that can help you make the right nutritional choices—following one of these guided diets will teach you how to eat the right foods to feel your best and reach your goals.
These diet strategies include the Autoimmune Protocol Diet, Keto Diet, the Plant-Based Diet, and the Paleo Diet. We can choose the right one for you based on your ultimate goals, body, and nutritional needs.
The Autoimmune Protocol Diet
The Autoimmune Protocol Diet is a diet that can benefit patients who suffer from any form of an autoimmune disorder. This type of disorder causes the immune system to attack bodily tissue and includes conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and psoriasis, among others. Additionally, diabetes and thyroid disorders can also result from autoimmune disorders.
This diet is specifically designed to help alleviate the symptoms of such conditions and reduce bodily inflammation. This diet includes foods similar to the Paleo diet and focuses on anti-inflammatory nutritional choices to help protect the immune system and promote gut health. The primary foods in this diet include nuts, seeds, vegetables, meats, and fish. We will evaluate your medical history to determine if the Autoimmune Protocol Diet is right for you.
The Keto Diet
While many people view the Keto Diet as a fad diet, it actually delivers many health benefits. This diet is a far cry from the Atkins diet of the past and focuses on eating healthy, high-fat foods while lowering carbohydrate intake. Increasing healthy fats while reducing carbohydrates will enable your body to use fat for energy which not only helps you lose weight but helps it fight against certain health conditions. The Keto Diet will promote fat-burning metabolic processes and help fight against Alzheimer’s, epilepsy, cancer, and diabetes.
The Plant-Based Diet
The Plant-Based Diet is exactly as it sounds. A plant-based diet includes nutritional choices that stem from natural, plant sources. These plant-based foods are natural and mostly unprocessed. Plant-based foods are so healthy and effective because they contain many nutrients that the body needs to heal and experience optimal health and wellness.
Undergoing a plant-based diet includes adding more plant-based foods to meals and eliminating the foods that don’t promote health. This diet can help the body heal and repair, cause satiation, and help you reach your health, wellness, and body goals. One of our experts will review your goals, dietary restrictions, and health history to determine if the Plant-Based Diet is the right choice for you.
The Paleo Diet
The Paleo diet is another popular diet simply because it works. This diet is based on the premise that those living in the Paleolithic era only ate a limited group of foods, resulting in optimal health and wellness. This diet also rests on the premise that farmed or processed foods force the body to over-exert itself and limit its ability to absorb nutrients. The foods in this diet include nuts, seeds, fruits, vegetables, fish, lean meats, and proteins.
This diet eliminates specific food groups that were not available during the Paleolithic era, including dairy products, grains, and legumes. If you’re interested in the Paleo diet, one of our experts can review it in depth during your initial consultation as well as your ultimate goals to determine if following this diet is the right choice for you.
Am I a Candidate for a Nutrition Program?
One of the benefits of our nutrition programs is that everyone is a candidate. Regardless of your medical history, background, or goals, you can overhaul your diet, eliminate foods that negatively impact your health, and learn to make the right choices that will make you look better, feel better, and give you the energy you need to make it through the day and still have the energy to spare.
Every Program Is Different
However, not every nutrition program will look the same. Patients have different goals, different needs, and different dietary restrictions. For that reason, a consultation is the important first step in this process.
When you schedule a consultation here at our Naples office, you’ll be met by experts who will perform a thorough evaluation of your health and determine what your ultimate goals are. Then, we will create a maintainable nutrition program but will also help you achieve your goals and see results.
How Long Will I Follow the Diet?
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to a nutrition program. For that reason, we evaluate each patient on an individual basis and then make recommendations and assign a treatment plan based on preferences, lifestyle, goals, and dietary and medical restrictions. Additionally, each patient will need to follow their diet for it a personalized amount of time.
Know that when you learn to make good nutritional choices and avoid the foods that don’t promote optimal health, you can easily transform this program into a maintainable lifestyle. A diet is designed to help you lose weight, but a lifestyle is something that you can maintain—eating healthy foods and making the right choices every day will make this entire process feel less like a chore and more like something you want to choose.
Good Nutrition Shouldn’t Be Complicated
Nutrition doesn’t have to be complicated, but it often is. When you trust our experts to take the guesswork out of this process, you’ll never regret it. And, not only will you learn more about yourself, but how the food you eat affects your body.
Once you begin this program, you’ll see firsthand how the right nutritional choices can make all the difference in not only how you look and help you achieve your weight loss goals but in how you feel. Energy is a rare commodity, and when you make the right choices, you’ll find that you won’t feel drained, you’ll have balanced blood sugar, and you’ll have an improved mood as a result of living free of those constant blood sugar rises and falls.
