Interested in gaining the nutrition tools to obtain your ideal body weight, optimize
blood profile levels and maximize your health and energy potential? Start making lasting lifestyle changes that will improve your health and performance today!
Emergency responders are faced with many unique challenges that may increase their health risk. And with all the fad diets, and alternative nutrition advice, it’s easy to get off track and do more harm to your metabolism and health status than good. By understanding the science behind metabolism and learning how to eat right for your body, you can overcome some of these challenges and potential health risks, and perform at your best.
Looking to re-evaluate your diet to help lose weight or improve your blood profile?
Schedule a one on one consultation with Ilene. She will assess the firefighter's current intake, develop and tailor a unique diet plan for him/her, and discuss ways to overcome obstacles to eating healthy. She encourages you to bring your family or significant others, so they can learn how to support you and follow a healthy lifestyle as well. There is no charge for the first visit.
Just have a question?
Call WellAmerica at 520-795-1098 or email and Ilene can schedule a phone consultation with you if needed.
Interested in a group presentation with your shift?
