What Happens When I Visit the MECA Sports Nutritionist?
On your first visit, the Nutritionist will seek to get to know you personally, and talk about your fitness, performance and health goals. This first consultation will also involve completing an extensive intake form to determine your current health. This includes questions pertaining to lifestyle, habits, eating, exercise, and many more topics that relate to your personal health and performance.
The Nutritionist will also arrange for lab testing, if needed (blood, urine, stool) that you complete mostly at home and send into the lab. The Nutritionist will receive the results and go over them with you to help formulate a tailored nutrition plan to coincide with your MECA Trainer’s fitness plan.
After completing the intake form and lab work, you can meet with our MECA Sports Nutritionist as often as needed to carry out your nutrition and fitness plan and pursue your goals.
