Cardiovascular Health Counselling

Nutrition counselling for cardiovascular health includes nutrition education on most current recommendations to lower cholesterol and triglycerides and how to incorporate these into your daily life. Other topics may include reading food labels, meal planning, shopping on a budget and more depending on one’s individual needs. The ultimate goal is to provide education and guidance on how to modify your diet to reduce cardiovascular risk, while still enjoying what you eat. The sessions follow a step-by-step, personalized approach that typically yields the best results.

The dietitian will:

  • Perform a comprehensive assessment of your diet within your medical and lifestyle context
  • Provide nutrition education on current dietary guidelines to lower blood pressure (including food, exercise, supplements and other lifestyle factors)
  • Discuss current recommendations/research to lower cholesterol and triglycerides
