Capital Women’s Care Now Offering Outpatient Nutritional Counseling Services
Brought to you by Capital Women’s Care - Hagerstown
Thanks to supermarkets and gourmet restaurants, we have more food choices than ever before. Combine that with a busy lifestyle and, too often, good nutrition takes a back seat to convenience. We are pleased to offer the women of our community outpatient nutritional counseling services. Registered Dietitian, Brandy Baxter, joined our practice on May 1, 2015 and has been eagerly helping women make the connection between what they eat and how they feel.
Brandy’s background in community health, clinical nutrition, bariatrics, and renal care allow her to specialize in assisting women manage chronic illnesses, such as pre-diabetes, diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure. She is most passionate about helping others achieve their health and wellness goals through achievable, practical diet and lifestyle changes. Brandy is committed to providing support to those wanting to conquer eating issues, increase energy and well-being, and weight loss.
During your initial one-on-one consultation, Brandy will discuss with you, your medical, social, and family history. She will explore your goals, previous diets and their outcomes, and your relationship with food. Brandy will develop a plan to accomplish your goals and coach you along the way.
Registered Dietitian, Brandy Baxter
1) What should I expect when I meet with a registered dietitian?
The dietitian will collect information that may include your current eating habits, activity level, medical history, and any questions you may have. Then she will work with you to create healthy eating strategies and/or meal plans that will help you reach your health and wellness goals. The counseling is done in a confidential, judgment-free setting.
2) What is the difference between meeting with a dietitian versus choosing a commercial diet or weight loss option?
A registered dietitian will provide evidence-based, up-to-date nutrition information without requiring you to buy special foods or products. They will share with you strategies and food choices that are proven by science to promote health and wellness.
3) Is it expensive to get individual nutrition counseling?
No, many health insurance plans are offering coverage for weight loss, kidney disease, and diabetes, which makes it very affordable.
