Sessions 101

Each session/plan is tailored to your needs and goals. With continuing support, encouragement, accountability, progress reports, and possible tweaks in your plan, together we’ll strive to build healthy habits that effortlessly integrate into your lifestyle.

How long are the sessions?

Initial sessions are 60-minutes and follow-up sessions are 30-minutes. 

Where do we meet? 

Alanna Cabrero Nutrition, PC is all about convenience, which is why the program is VIRTUAL. Most sessions are done over the phone, FaceTime, or Skype. We can talk on your lunch break, during your commute, or after your kid’s bedtime. If it’s scheduled 24 hours in advance, it’s happening! Note: Initial consultations may be scheduled in person for an added cost (usually $50-100).

How frequent do we meet?

Frequency is determined by your goals and schedule. Generally, we talk every 2-3 weeks.

Do you need to prepare anything before we start working together?

Prior to starting a nutrition session/plan, you will be asked to fill out an in-depth Confidential Initial Assessment. Be ready to answer questions about your lifestyle, nutritional habits, and medical health history. During the sessions, I would strongly suggest taking notes. .

You should expect to leave with your own program that includes:

  • medical nutrition therapy review of any clinical condition or diagnosis

  • assessment of your most recent labs

  • food allergies, intolerances, or dietary restrictions (vegan, paleo, etc)

  • meal planning, scheduling, and/or grocery lists

  • pre- and post-workout intake for optimal training and results

  • basics on physical activity guidelines

  • food evaluations including nutrient breakdowns

  • food preparation tips

  • pantry makeovers

  • portion control & calorie guidelines

  • cognitive behavior therapy techniques as they relate to weight management and maintenance

  • food labels, deciphering ingredients

  • mindful and emotional eating

  • tips on dining in and eating out

  • dietary supplements

  • managing alcohol consumption

  • healthy traveling, including on-the-go snacks

  • lifestyle considerations: movement, relationships (with people or food itself), stress, sleep, and finding a healthy medium

Do I accept health insurance?

No, unfortunately, I do not take insurance. However, I can provide a SuperBill, which you can present to your healthcare provider. The SuperBill includes the reason for your nutrition session, the time we spent together, and the amount you paid along with all my professional info. If your insurance provider covers nutrition sessions or if you have Flex Spending, they may reimburse part or all of the session cost. I would suggest calling your insurance provider for more info. If the cost is the ONLY THING that is deterring you from making a commitment to your health, please email me and we can talk about a sliding scale option and/or payment plan.
