Nutrition Counseling

Our Philosophy

At Men’s Health Boston, we believe that practicing preventive medicine starts with establishing healthy behaviors. We also know that behavior change can be hard, and you shouldn’t have to do hard things alone. That’s why we’re proud to offer in-house nutrition counseling services as a resource to our patients. Whether you are looking to improve your overall health and energy levels, take control of your eating habits, or struggling with how to properly manage a chronic disease, we can help.

What are Nutrition Services? Are you going to put me on a “diet”?

Kebabs

Typically, no. While certain conditions do require targeted nutrition therapy, what most people think of as a “diet” is something meant to be short-term and restrictive to achieve a specific goal, such as losing weight. Unfortunately, a large body of research shows that this approach isn’t very effective long-term.

At MHB, we prefer to take the long-view, and focus instead on sustainable patterns of eating and building healthy behaviors, one step at a time. The key to good health isn’t dogma, it’s flexibility, and our approach is designed to be adaptable to the things in life you care about most.

What if my insurance says “no” to coverage?

We are committed to making these services available and affordable to patients who want to take charge of their health. If your insurance plan won’t cover nutrition counseling, we offer a flexible pay-for-service program and discounted consultation packages:
