What is healthy eating? Aside from what you eat, healthy eating includes how much you eat, when you eat, and even how and why you eat. Good nutrition and healthy eating habits can maximize your energy levels to help you feel good throughout the day. Eating properly can help manage certain medical conditions and can help decrease the risk of developing chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers.
Do you know about our nutrition services? At the PCN, our registered dietitians provide nutrition education through group classes and individual appointments.
Working individually with a dietitian involves an initial 60 minute nutrition appointment to review your current eating habits. Your dietitian will work with you to determine your personal long term goals such as improving meal timing, managing blood sugar levels, or managing a medical condition. Our dietitians use a non-dieting approach to help you make sustainable and realistic changes.
Changing eating habits can be challenging! Our dietitians work with you to take the confusion out of food so that you can have more energy for your daily activities. If you are interested in nutrition services at the Edmonton North PCN, ask your doctor today for a referral.
Services at Northgate Centre require a referral from your family doctor, who is a member of the PCN.
Services at Rundle Health Centre are available to you if you have a T5W postal code. You do not require a referral. You can either call or walk in to book an appointment.
