Toronto Registered Nutritional Consulting Practitioner (RNCP)
Cells in our bodies are built from raw materials that we eat. The more suitable our food choices are to our specific requirements, the better cell structure we can build and maintain. Since every person is unique, individual nutritional imbalances and weaknesses need to be assessed. An RNCP can introduce new dietary habits, incorporating the latest nutritional protocols; however, it may be difficult to achieve optimal health through diet alone. An RNCP is trained to design personalized dietary supplement programs.
An RNCP is a qualified practitioner who delivers services to individuals or groups, offering guidance pertaining to the building and maintenance of nutritional well-being. Such counseling may include:
- Recommending food selection and preparation.
- Recommending food supplements (vitamins, minerals, enzymes, glandular concentrates, proteins, essential fatty acids).
- Educating clients about the benefits of a sound nutritional program to encourage the body to heal itself.
- Evaluation of their client's food intake, usually over a given week. Particular attention is paid to the proportions of protein, fat, starches, sugars and fibre consumed.
- Designing a program specifically for each client taking into consideration such factors as height, weight, age, sex, level of exercise or physical activity, dietary goals, food preferences, sensitivities to specific foods, and dietary habits in respect to their diet and nutritional deficiencies.
