Nutrition

Good nutrition is a cornerstone of a long and healthy life. Poor diet is one of the leading contributors to premature death in the United States, as it increases the risk factor for illnesses like heart disease, diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, and several cancers. 

 

Whether you're looking to lose weight, manage a chronic health condition, or simply improve your current diet, Kathy or Mary can help you by providing the highest level of nutrition counseling and a personally tailored plan to fit your individual needs.
