A Weight Neutral Approach to Nutrition Counselling
Have you heard of a ‘weight neutral’ approach? At Ignite, we practice within a weight inclusive paradigm, often referred to as a weight neutral approach. You may have heard of…
Get help with the ‘what’ and ‘how’ of healthy eating - from disease prevention to living your healthiest life with help from our Calgary dietitians!
It starts with understanding your personal behaviour and motivations.
We all know we need to eat more vegetables, drink more water, get more sleep (the list goes on) – so what stops us from doing it?
Many times, it’s not our nutrition knowledge that’s the problem – its our behaviour. The ‘WHY’ we eat is often more important than the ‘what’.
Our dietitians are specialized in helping with behaviour change that ACTUALLY sticks long term.
Getting Back to Basics
At the end of the day – 90% of nutrition information you get online or through well meaning friends and family is ACTUALLY wrong.
Been told bananas have ‘too much sugar’? False. Told not to eat past 8 pm? May not be the best fit for your body. Terrified of carbs? Another diet-fad.
Healthy eating can be simple. It’s about understanding what’s right for your body, getting back to basics, and improving your confidence in making healthy choices.
Healthy Eating Looks Different for Everyone
Our dietitians will create a customized plan for you based on a thorough assessment of your health behaviours and goals.
From there, we will develop our short term and long term goals, and create a road-map on exactly how we will get there.
Our counselling starts with a 1 hour comprehensive assessment to determine your current nutrition status, challenges, and your personal health values. We take a holistic look at health and wellness to truly understand where your nutrition and health concerns are.
From there, we will create a road-map of your care, both personalized and practical to help you learn to take care of your health from a place of intuition, empowerment and knowledge, build healthy habits, and fuel your body positively. We’re with you every step of the way.
At Ignite, we’re all about small meaningful changes that have a big impact. We like to say “it’s in the challenges that we can grow, learn, and spark your journey to a healthier life”. Let our dietitians guide you on a journey to take charge of your health, and live the healthiest life you ACTUALLY enjoy!
The important part of any new habit is getting started - not just the first time, but every time. - James Clear

Ignite Nutrition attended the Husky Wellness clinic back in October 2018. In chatting with Ignite staff, I was impressed with their knowledge of diabetes and interest in supporting any efforts in this area. I worked with Ignite staff over a period of time and found the appointments to be of good value with supporting documentation, discussions around diet, exercises and opportunities for improving my general health.
