Healthy Eating Habits & Relationship with Food

Let’s make peace with food, and make eating well automatic.

Does any of this sound familiar?

  • The various diet plans I did were hard to stick to, and I’m sick of the restriction, blame, and failure. I want to do something different to support my health.
  • Eating better would help my health and energy levels, but I’m not sure what’s right for me – I’m drowning in all the conflicting advice out there.
  • I’ve fallen into some pretty unhealthy eating habits. I feel tired and bloated, and have probably gained some weight. It’s time for a change.
  • When I’ve tried to eat better, cravings and fear of restriction or social pressure quickly sabotaged my efforts. I need help navigating the psychological side of eating.

What if…

  • Food was just one of the many pleasures of your life.
  • You made time to eat, and felt good afterwards – not stuffed or still hungry.
  • A wide variety of healthy foods appealed to you, and you were allowed to eat anything you like.
  • You had all the knowledge and skills you need to choose and eat foods confidently.
  • You had a flexible, sustainable plan you can follow for many years to come.
  • You had access to an expert to answer all of your questions.

All of that is possible with Individual Nutrition Counselling

Meet Your Dietitian

We understand how it feels to search for the “right” thing to eat, only to feel dissatisfied, frustrated, or guilty. Like you, we’re fed up with the culture of ever-changing health fads and dieting advice co-existing with so many industrial food products in our modern eating environment.

It’s challenging to navigate, and to know who or what to trust. But rest assured: We’ve guided hundreds of people before you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will my health insurance cover this?

Many people have coverage for Registered Dietitian services through their extended health benefits, but every plan is different. So please check with your plan administrator’s for the details of your coverage.

You may find Registered Dietitians listed with Chiropractors and Massage Therapists as one of types of HEALTH PRACTITIONERS or Providers covered by your plan. There are ordinarily limits to this coverage, such as a total amount per year and/or a maximum amount per visit. To avoid surprizes, we recommend understanding those limits ahead of time.

Nutrition Counselling with us may also be an eligible expense for any FLEXIBLE health or wellness spending accounts you may have though your workplace. Others have used workplace-sponsored personal development funds, as well.

If you have any kind of coverage, let us know. While we won’t direct bill your plan, we will do our best to ensure you get all the services you’re covered for, and provide detailed reciepts in support of your claims.

And if your coverage doesn’t reimburse you for 100% of the cost of your nutrition counselling, Canada Revenue Agency recognizes any out-of-pocket costs as eligible medical expenses for income tax deduction purposes. Save your receipts!

Are there payment plans available?
Yes. If you want to work with Eatwell for more than a month, but would rather pay in monthly installments rather than all at once, let us know. We’ll set up a monthly payment for the length of your plan.
Where do we meet?

As of 2020, most of our appointments occur using a video chat platform. It’s simple and secure, with no downloads needed. We will also have visits over the phone if needed.

When are appointments available? Can I book evenings and weekends?

In order to accomodate a variety of schedules, nutrition counselling appointments are available on weekday mornings, afternoons, and some evenings. Weekend appointments are not currently available. An online calendar shows availability, or you can email to suggest a few times that work for you.

Should I bring anything?

Intake forms and payment are typically handled ahead of your first visit, all online or by phone. So you really don’t need to bring anything other than a willingness to work together. Some clients will share their food & activity journals, which is always welcome. You can take notes, or ask for ours. 

Can I bring someone with me?

Certainly. A supportive person like your spouse, parent, or adult child is always welcome to listen in and contribute at your inivitation. We’ll focus on you, but may have that person help us better understand your history with food, or help you achieve your goals. 

What if I've finished my package, but still need support?
No problem. For clients who have worked with us within the last 6 months, extra followup appointments can be booked as needed. You might ask for just one or two more visits to adress a particular issue, or decide to commit to a regular monthly appointment for further growth and accountability beyond the initial package.
