Nutritional Management Q & A

What is nutritional management?

Nutritional management is a weight and health plan that helps you optimize the foods you eat. As a board-certified obesity medicine specialist, Dr. Cain is uniquely skilled in designing customized programs that help you lose weight and improve your whole-body health by using food as medicine. 

What is the best nutritional plan?

The best dietary plan can depend on your health and personal goals. In general, nutritional plans focus on less fatty, sugary, and processed foods with more natural foods like whole grains, veggies, fruits, and healthy fats. 

In the beginning, you may use a nutritionally complete liquid meal replacement program, Optifast. After the active weight loss phase, Dr. Cain designs a nutritional plan that helps you transition back into eating solid food in a way that benefits your whole-body health while still encouraging steady weight loss until you reach your goal weight. 

What does nutritional management include?

In a nutritional management program, Dr. Cain prescribes dietary recommendations based on your health, body composition, body mass index (BMI), and other factors unique to you. 

Dr. Cain considers all aspects of your health and wellness, including chronic conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure. Your nutritional management program may include:

  • A customized eating plan
  • Recipes
  • Meal planning
  • Meal replacement - Optifast® from NestlĂ© Health Science
  • Medical-grade nutritional supplements (home delivery available)
  • Metabolic care for chronic diseases, including necessary medications
  • Medication management, including adjusting current medications that cause side-effects
  • Lifestyle management 

Dr. Cain can also tailor your nutritional management plan to meet specific goals. For example, many people come to Excelsis Health with particular needs or objectives. These may include fighting a chronic disease like diabetes, reducing chronic pain, improving fertility, boosting physical fitness, or qualifying for a surgical procedure. 

Dr. Cain can help you make the specific changes needed to achieve your goals while losing weight and learning a new healthy lifestyle.
