Outpatient Diet & Nutrition Counseling

Diet and nutrition play an incredibly important role in weight loss and overall health. Our outpatient diet and nutrition counseling is solely for residents of the Raleigh/Durham area who are ready to take the first step toward better health, or who feel like they’re already doing all the right things, but they’re not seeing results. As part of our outpatient services, Duke Diet and Fitness Center’s registered dietitians:

  • Provide a thorough nutrition assessment to understand your weight history, dietary needs and the challenges you face at home.

  • Review your 3-day food journal to understand eating habits. We ask that you complete this prior to your first appointment.

  • Calculate or measure your resting metabolic rate, to determine the amount of fuel your body needs to sustain vital body functions while at rest.

  • Work with you to develop a meal plan that you enjoy and that supports your goals safely and effectively.

  • Discuss your behaviors and emotions relating to food, and possibly collaborate with our behavioral clinicians to help you develop healthier coping mechanisms

  • Offer OPTIFAST®, a medically supervised meal-replacement weight-loss program

  • Provide access to our fitness specialists, to talk about complementing your nutritional plan with exercise 

"Research has proven that a weight-loss program with multiple interventions is more successful."

 – Elisabetta Politi, Nutritional Director
