Nutrition Consultations

The Department of Campus Recreation offers nutrition consultations that are available to students, MAC members and UTA faculty/staff at a reasonable rate. Nutrition consultations include an initial appointment with a registered, licensed dietitian as well as one required follow-up session. Additional sessions are available as needed; and as agreed upon by the client and dietitian.

The initial consultation provides the foundation for a tailored eating plan and includes a discussion of the client’s completed nutrition packet, any pertinent medical history, a detailed description of the client’s current nutrition and exercise routines, and a thorough goal setting session.

A follow up session is required to hold the client accountable for the new plan and new changes being implemented. This session will reinforce the content provided in the first session and also allow for additional dietary tweaks based on client feedback. The dietitian and client will troubleshoot any obstacles that may have come up and then develop successful strategies for overcoming these obstacles to ensure client adherence and success.

Nutrition counseling is available for the following: weight management, weight/fat loss, weight/muscle gain, sports nutrition, wellness/preventive nutrition, eating disorders/disordered eating, and basic nutrition education.

FEE

$25 per session (2 session minimum)

*Sessions are 30-60 minutes each and are tailored to each client’s unique needs. Sessions may be purchased at the Services & Information Desk at the MAC. Cash, credit and personal check are all accepted.
