The application of medical nutrition therapy (MNT) and lifestyle counseling as a part of the Nutrition Care Process is an integral component of the medical treatment for management of specific disease states and conditions and should be the initial step in the management of these situations.
Lifestyle counseling enhances MNT by providing insight into the behaviors and/or events that are associated with appropriate as well as inappropriate eating and exercise behaviors. Behavior modification techniques are taught with strategies provided to assist in making positive behavioral changes for a lifetime. MNT and lifestyle counseling are cost-effective means of treating a number of diseases and their symptoms.
