A nutrition guide is a reference that provides nutrition advice for general health, typically by dividing foods into food groups and the recommended servings of each group. Guidelines on diet and nutrition serve two important purposes: to guide policymakers and to educate consumers. Other lifestyle behaviors such as weight, physical activity, and smoking status are sometimes also included. At Horizons Health & Wellness, we provide nutritional guidance services to help you regain control over your habits and improve your health.
Food is an essential part of the human experience, providing vital nutrients and sustaining life. Food is a compilation of three macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates, and fats) that provide energy and play specific roles in maintaining health. Food also supplies micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) and phytochemicals which perform many critical bodily functions necessary for optimal health. At Horizons Health & Wellness, we offer detailed nutrition analyses through our partnership with specialty labs such as Genova Diagnostics.

What is a Nutrition and Health Coach?
You may have seen the phrase “health coach” popping up in nutritional circles and appearing in magazine articles and on TV. Health and wellness coaches are appearing in doctor’s offices, spas, gyms, and private practices all over the country. Nutrition coaches offer services and fill in gaps left by doctors and dietitians due to time and insurance company restrictions. Whether your goal is to lose weight, increase energy or just feel better, at Horizons Health & Wellness, we take the time to listen to your concerns. We help you discover where and why you are struggling and help you navigate the world of contradictory nutritional advice to determine what works best for your body. Every person is unique, which is why there is no “perfect diet”. Nutrition coaches don’t promote a specific diet, rather they help you find what works best for you, and how to make diet and lifestyle changes to optimize your health.
