Gabbi's Approach as a Registered Dietitian

A Registered Dietitian and nutrition expert who overcame a lifetime of struggles with food and weight, Gabbi knows that what you eat is more than just a vital part of managing your weight and getting results. Your nutrition is a key factor in your lifestyle, wellbeing, energy, stress, health, and happiness.

 

Whether you want to lose weight, build muscle, have more energy, manage a medical condition, or just feel better, Gabbi helps you find the nutrition plan that yields the results you want and teaches you the habits you need to feel good about food and your body.

 

Gabbi's extensive training as a dietitian will help you separate nutrition fact from fiction and dispel confusing myths. She gives you  specialized and comprehensive advice to complement your fitness program, get the best possible results, and address any specific medical needs.

 

Gabbi also brings a high level of empathy from her personal experience as a client who worked long and hard to overcome an eating disorder and a lifetime of struggles with food and weight. Gabbi not only teaches you sound nutrition information and personalized eating strategies, but can relate to your real-life challenges. 

 

Gabbi starts by learning all about your medical and health history, current eating habits, food preferences, and the struggles you're facing. Then she teaches you about what to eat and how to combine foods in ways that work for you so you can lose fat, build muscle, keep your energy up, reduce cravings, improve your health, and eliminate any negative symptoms.  

 

Using a compassionate and individualized non-diet approach, Gabbi works with you to devise a personalized nutrition plan that provides plenty of options and incorporates your favorite foods. Your plan is tailored to your lifestyle, goals, likes, and dislikes, as well as your special needs and cultural preferences. 

 

Gabbi will also help you overcome real-life challenges like navigating the grocery store, eating out, cravings, and emotional eating. She focuses on helping you developing nutrition habits that enable you to reach your goals, see results, enjoy your food, and developing lifelong healthy habits.

 

No more diets, quick fixes, deprivation, or lack of personalization - Gabbi will teach you a healthy, enjoyable way of eating that helps you eat the right foods, look and feel your best, and make peace with your body for life.

Metabolism &  Body Composition Testing:

Gabbi offers metabolic testing that can precisely determine how many calories you need in a day to lose (or gain) weight, tone up, and build muscle. She also offers highly accurate and advanced body composition testing, providing measures of your body fat, muscle mass, water, and other components that make up your total body weight. 

 

Gabbi uses the InBody 570, the most accurate and state-of-the-art body composition analyzer that can be used in an office setting. Your body composition encompasses how much of you is fat, muscle, water, and the other components that make up our body weight. Your body composition is a more accurate picture of your health status and weight changes than your total weight number, as differentiating between muscle and fat helps to ensure optimal progress (losing fat while retaining or building muscle). 

 

With a quick and easy test that only involves standing on a scale for less than 5 minutes, the InBody 570 measures your:

  • Body weight

  • Body fat (mass and percent)

  • Muscle mass

  • Water and hydration status (total body water as well as water inside and outside of your body cells)

  • Resting metabolic rate (how many calories you burn at rest)

  • Fat distribution throughout your body (how much fat you have in your arms, legs, and torso)

  • Muscle mass and strength distribution (how much muscle you have in each arm and leg and in your torso, and a measure of muscle strength in each area)

  • Visceral fat level (amount of fat beneath your abdominal organs that can increase inflammation as well as risks of cardiovascular disease and diabetes)

  • Trends in weight, body fat, and muscle mass over time 

 

Gabbi thoroughly reviews all of your InBody 570 results with you. She uses the results to precisely determine:

  • How many calories you burn in a day

  • How many calories you need to eat to lose weight, gain muscle, or maintain your weight

  • Precise targets for fat loss and muscle gain

  • Differences in muscle strength between your arms, legs, core, and right and left sides to be corrected in your strength training program

 

The comprehensive, personalized data provided by the InBody 570 can help optimize your results from your nutrition and exercise programs while enabling you to precisely monitor changes in your body fat and muscle mass over time.
