nutritional counseling in Portland.jpgLearning what foods are best to be eating and how to incorporate more of them into your meals is an important part of meeting your health goals. Our Portland chiropractic office doesn't just focus on the traditional methods you may think of, like postural correction for back pain or personal training for improved muscle strength. In addition, we give patients personalized nutritional counseling to promote wellness through overall health.

Healthy Nutrition Tips from Your Portland Chiropractor

1. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables, using them as your snacks instead of filling up on carbohydrates and sugar. An apple, orange, or banana makes a great snack, or you can mix some berries into Greek yogurt for less sugar and higher protein. Most people don't get enough fresh fruits and vegetables, and eating these can make a significant difference on your overall health and how you feel.

2. Track the number of calories you consume and eat until you're satisfied, not full. Recognize that avoiding overeating is one of the major ways you can improve overall wellness. Although you may come to the chiropractor with complaints about back pain and requests for postural correction, the solution may be in your diet, not just spinal adjustments or massage.

3. Choose foods that will give you an energy boost and fuel your personal training and fitness-centric workouts. As you begin to work out more, you'll find that your body needs more calories to fuel your metabolism. Eat some fruit and yogurt an hour or two before working out, and perhaps a small carbohydrate snack just before you work out. Then eat a meal that includes lean protein after each workout.

4. Take supplements to round out your diet. There are so many healthy things you should be eating, and you don't have to carefully plan every day's menu to incorporate a little bit of everything. For example, a multivitamin can supplement what you're getting from fruits and vegetables.
