Functional Nutritionist You recognize a need to reach a healthy weight but want to do it in a way that supports both your long and short-term health goals. That starts with learning how to nourish your body correctly. A functional nutritionist is a nutrition expert who knows how to design personalized nutrition plans around the proven science of how people lose weight. Here are some of the ways a functional nutritionist can help you achieve your ideal weight.

More than Calories In, Calories Out

“Calories in, calories out” is a common mantra in diet culture. People have been struggling to lose weight by applying this principle alone for years. Science shows there is more to it. A functional nutritionist understands this. Calorie quality matters.

Of course, 100 calories of donuts is the same as 100 calories of beans. No one can dispute that. However, beans will be much more filling and keep you satisfied longer. It delivers fiber, vitamins, minerals, and protein your body needs to thrive. Philip Rabito, MD, can help you better understand the difference between calories and how they affect your weight and overall health.

Healthy Food Can Taste Good
