Dietmaster is a revolutionary nutritional planning tool that allows a YMCA Wellness Coach to design a personalized meal plan for you. The Dietmaster session will start with an overall assessment including accurate height, weight, BMI, and Body Fat Percentage. Once the assessment has been reviewed Dietmaster will calculate the total number of calories, protein, fat, and carbohydrates needed during the day to allow that person to reach their goals. Once that has been determined a daily meal plan will be developed to include 3 meals and 3 snacks for each day along with portion size. A complete list will be printed out for you to take to the grocery to make grocery shopping a breeze. Dietmaster is not a quick fix diet. It is a guide for a healthy lifestyle. Dietmaster has a 5 or 7 day meal plan option.
*You must make an appointment at the Welcome Center for this service.*
