Nutritional Psychiatry 105: Getting Through To Your Patients: Meal Planning and Implementation

Credits: AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ (1 hour)
Price: $47

Course Description

With so much information on diets and mental health, the key question still remains: How can we crack the code of definitive behavioral change?” After all, changing habits to one’s diet and staying consistent is one of the most difficult behavioural changes to make. The key to helping patients make diet changes that last is to focus on the joy of eating and help them understand that it’s not about deprivation, a loss of pleasure, or it becoming a chore.

One of the biggest objections to eating a healthy diet is not having enough time. Youll learn three practical strategies for saving prep time, while preserving healthy meals. Organization is key to making dietary changes that last. Learn how to create food plans, kitchen layouts, recipes and ways to shop efficiently with a budget. This might sound like common sense, but a little extra lifestyle coaching can help patients in big ways.

Youll get up-to-date blogs, books, and practical resources to refer your patients to. Your patients will be so thankful for going the extra mile in their healthcare and wellness journey.

  • Discover 3 strategies for saving time while increasing nutritional value of meals​
