with Evan Huang-Ku, RD, CDE, CBE
你好 /nǐ hǎo/ Hello!
RD, CBE, CDE
Welcome to my nutrition practice. I am a registered dietitian who is passionate about helping you solve health concerns with individualized nutrition plans. In addition, I am a certified diabetes educator and a bariatric educator to provide you care based on the most updated clinical practice guidelines.
Consultations with me follow a flexible structure that typically include a nutrition assessment, nutrition diagnosis, nutrition intervention, and nutrition monitoring and evaluation. In the initial consult, I will learn about my client’s medical history, lifestyle habits, and nutrition goals. Then, together, my client and I will set up actionable plans to move closer to their health objectives.
WHY CHOOSE TO WORK WITH ME?
With the vast amount of fad diets and gimmicks on the web and the growing number of self-claimed nutrition experts out there, it can be confusing and overwhelming to find a solution tailored to your needs. Not to mention, certain gimmicks are unsafe and unrealistic to adhere to in the long run to produce lasting effects. Instead, I take a client-centered approach where I invite my clients to create plans and make lasting lifestyle changes.
WHO IS A SUITABLE CLIENT?
Clients seek my help to improve their wellness with healthy eating or manage their chronic diseases better. In some cases, my clients are only looking for professional expertise to double-check that they are on the right track. If you're unsure whether my service is what you need, send me and message and find out!
