A Dietetic Assessment
An initial 60 minute thorough dietetic assessment aims to understand a client’s current clinical status, weight history, dietary intake, eating pattern and beliefs about food.
A detailed and thorough assessment is always recommended before any nutritional guidance is provided.
Within an assessment session, clear treatment goals and aims will be identified and a treatment plan devised according to these goals.
Check ins are usually weekly in the initial stages of recovery and they get longer in length as treatment goes.
How can a Dietitian help you in your eating disorder recovery?
Our specialist dietitians will support and guide you towards a healthy diet plan that will help you to maintain physical, emotional and psychological health.
Your meal plan will be personalised, structured, healthy and balanced, ensuring that you are meeting your body’s nutritional needs, and well as keeping your energy levels constant so that dips in mood and urges to overeat are reduced.
Appropriate goals for dietetic work might be to restore healthy weight, to reduce physiological urges to binge or restrict and to better understand what nutrition your body needs, to tackle feared or avoided food types, to develop a healthier relationship with exercise and to understand how this will impact on your nutritional needs, to reduce laxative or diuretic use in a healthy way or to challenge and reduce misconceptions about food, nutrition or your body.
We are here to support you every step of the way through our structured approach.
