Weight Loss Program

Individuals who apply to the diet outpatient clinic for weight loss, take into account their age, height, weight, lifestyle, health status, and physical activity. It is important for the person to be included in a special weight loss program in order to lose weight without deteriorating the body balance, without being hungry, without experiencing health problems such as weakness, dizziness, anemia, etc. Especially in the treatment of obese children in school age and adolescent age, it is essential that diet does not adversely affect the child’s healthy mental and physical development. A nutrition program is prepared to lose 0.5-1 kg per week. In order not to regain the lost weight, the person is given training to get rid of his wrong habits and adapt to an adequate and balanced diet. As a result of the weight loss program applied together with healthy nutrition education, it is aimed to reduce the body fat of the person. In each examination, body fat, muscle mass, body water and basal metabolic rate are measured with a body fat analyzer.

Weight Gain Program

Weakness occurs in the body when the energy taken with daily foods is less than the energy consumed or the nutrients taken are not used well by the body. The inability to recover the spent energy may be due to inadequate nutrition in terms of quality and quantity, as well as the inability to use the nutrients taken in the body due to digestive disorders, circulatory disorders, infections and parasites. Hormonal imbalances can also cause weakness. After the cause of the weakness is revealed by medical examinations, a nutrition program for weight gain is prepared.

Nutritional Therapy in Diseases

It is the provision of nutritional therapy appropriate to the diseases of all patients receiving outpatient or inpatient services. For example, diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, stomach ulcer, liver and kidney failure, gallbladder diseases, etc. are conditions that require medical nutrition therapy.

Nutrition for Pregnant and Lactating Women

Adequate and balanced nutrition during pregnancy and lactation is extremely important for the health of the mother and the baby. Adequate and balanced nutrition is essential for the mother to avoid problems such as anemia, folic acid deficiency and related health problems, hair loss, tooth loss and other vitamin-mineral deficiencies during pregnancy. Gestational diabetes (gestational diabetes), which occurs in some women during pregnancy, is a condition that definitely needs diet therapy. The mother should be well fed for the healthy development of the baby, for the baby to be born at a normal weight and for the postnatal development to be good. In addition, it can be prevented by appropriate nutrition programs that the mother gains a lot of weight during pregnancy or lactation, which is common in our society, and the excess weight cannot be lost. Feeding the mother with appropriate foods during lactation increases milk secretion.

Baby-Child-Adult-Elderly Nutrition

The nutritional needs of the body differ in every period from infancy to old age. Providing breast milk and complementary foods at the right time and in the right way in babies under one year old is very important for the baby’s brain and body development. Since growth and development continues rapidly during infancy and childhood, intake of nutrients such as adequate energy, protein, vitamins and minerals is essential. In adults, age, height, lifestyle, physical activities, health status affect nutrient requirements. In the old age, energy needs decrease in parallel with the decreasing physical activity and metabolic rate. In this period, the presence of various chronic diseases often requires the regulation of the diet.

Sports Nutrition

People who do sports should have more food intake than normal people. Because the energy consumed daily is too much. The type of sport, age, height, health status of the person affects the energy required. In order to prevent weakness and growth retardation, especially in children who are in the growth and development age, it is necessary to prepare an appropriate nutrition program. Inadequate and unbalanced nutrition negatively affects both the performance and health status of athletes.
