The initial consultation lasts for roughly 60 minutes and is where we go through your goals, medical history, dietary history, training programme (if applicable), and any other relevant factors. Depending on your goals, we may take measurements using our Tanita bioelectrical impedance scale or we may look at blood test results. Once we have gathered all your information, we will go away and draw up your individualized eating plan and email it to you within 2-3 working days.
A follow-up appointment may be necessary. During a follow-up, we will assess the changes that you have made and your progress toward your goals and discuss any further changes that you may need.
