Nutrition Counseling

Beach Body Nutritional Counseling photo of apple with tape measureA well-balanced diet plays an important role in maintaining our health. Healthy diets not only allow our bodies to function, they can also help us reach and maintain a healthy bodyweight, reduce our risk of developing chronic disease, and improve our mood and mental wellbeing.

Beach Balance’s nutrition counseling program is a collaboration with the CSULB Family and Consumer Science Department and provides dietetic students the opportunity to share their nutrition knowledge with members one-on-one. Sessions are FREE of charge, range from 30-60mins, and are aimed at helping students discover ways to improve their diet.

Our peer nutrition counselors can provide information on…

  • Basic nutrition concepts, such as macronutrients and how to read food labels
  • Dieting for weight loss or weight gain
  • Eating for improved sports performance
  • Dietary suggestions for medical conditions such as cholesterol or high blood pressure

Virtual Nutrition Counseling

Our virtual Nutrition Counseling sessions are run through Zoom and provide a 1-on-1 experience with an undergraduate Nutrition and Dietetic student. Our peer nutrition counselors will work with you to discover eating habits that best fit your lifestyle, dietary preferences, and individualized goals.

The registration period for Fall 2020 Nutrition Counseling has ended. Our next registration period will occur in February 2021.

December: Brain Foods

 

Fuel your brain before finals with brain foods!

Studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids have a positive effect on brain activity. The brain uses fats as a major fuel source, as well as carbohydrates. Caffeine has also been shown to contribute to brain function and focus. Caffeine can come from natural sources such as cocoa, coffee beans and tea.

Other examples of brain foods are:

  • Avocados
  • Flax Seeds
  • Apples
  • Blueberries
  • Chocolate (contains Caffeine)
  • Walnuts
  • Salmon, Tune and other Fish
