At Peak Recovery and Health Center, we believe in transparency when it comes to taking charge of your health. We’re a wellness center you can rely on, with professionals ready to guide you towards a healthier and balanced lifestyle. 

You deserve to have the knowledge to make the best decisions for your health. In this article, we explain the difference between nutrition plans and dieting.


Being on a Diet

It’s vital to recognize the difference between being on a diet and your daily diet. Your daily diet is the food you eat every day. Whether it’s junk food, super healthy, or somewhere in between, that’s up to you. Dieting means there’s something you’re restricting. This can include eliminating or reducing a specific category of food or adjusting your caloric or fat intake. 


Cons of Dieting

Without adequate knowledge,  dieting will often backfire and results will be quickly lost, leaving your body in starvation mode. Fad diets are often dangerous and rarely lead to lasting weight loss. We may lose weight fast with some, but it’s usually not a sustainable or healthy approach. You also aren’t getting the nutrients you need to fuel your body.


Nutrition Plan

A nutrition plan is more than just eating your fruits and vegetables. It’s also about being mindful of the quality and relationship with your food. It’s important to ensure you get adequate vitamins for your body’s needs. This includes consuming the right amount of fats, carbs, minerals, and proteins. Creating a nutrition plan is all about leading a healthy and balanced lifestyle. 


Benefits of Creating a Nutrition Plan with a Wellness Center

If you seek out Peak Recovery and Health Center to create a nutrition plan, you can expect the utmost support and professional guidance catered to you. 

Recommendations regarding your nutrition will be measured through PNOE. PNOE is a fitness assessment focusing on cardiac health, VO2 max, lung function, metabolic efficiency, and muscle fiber composition. PNOE also focuses on aerobic health, fat-burning efficiency, and how your posture affects your performance. 

When you meet with our professionals, there will be a review and consultation regarding meeting your meal needs. This entails your travel schedule, favorite restaurants and food, and certain restrictions. From there, a nutritionist will give you personalized daily meal plans. You’ll have access to a custom app to view and log daily meals and links to buy recommended ingredients and food. You’ll also be able to integrate things with your fitness trackers like Apple Health and MyFitnessPal.
