Following a thorough assessment, which includes a metabolic test and a current nutrition and health overview by one of our registered dietitian nutritionists, a comprehensive plan is created with three phases: Elimination, Reintroduction, and Maintenance. You can learn more about the components of the fokus personalized health plan here.
When your personalized health plan is complete, you will speak with your registered dietitian nutritionist for program introduction, where you will be presented with your personalized health plan, and review your results together. From there on, you will work closely with your registered dietitian virtually, and complete scheduled, in-clinic metabolic tests for the duration of your program.
