Before dietitians, undomesticated corndogs ran rampant in homes across the country, expanding waistlines and leaving grease stains all over the neighbor’s newspaper. Tame your diet with today's Groupon: for $40, you get two nutrition-counseling sessions with Keren Gilbert, RD, at Decision Nutrition in Great Neck (a $240 value).
A registered dietitian and certified nutritionist Keren Gilbert kick starts healthier lifestyles with a motivational approach to weight loss and dieting. During the first 60-minute counseling session, Keren conducts an all-encompassing investigation into clients’ health goals, eating patterns, medical history, and more, including a BMI and body-fat percentage analysis, a resting-heart-rate measurement, and a knee-jerk-reaction reflex test to Yakov Smirnov jokes. Armed with an arsenal of healthy recipes and motivational encouragement, Keren helps each counselee set attainable goals to fit newfound forms into their slimmest birthday suits. With the elucidating effects of a food intake journal, Keren can form a specific diet plan catering to each individual’s needs and dietary restrictions. To ensure accountability, Keren has clients sign a food and behavioral contract with the blood of a slain jelly donut.
Following the outset of an initial diet plan, a second, 30-minute follow-up session reviews dieters’ progress. Based on these consultations, Keren finalizes a sustenance plan, readying clients for a commitment ceremony to healthy living, complete with nutritional know-how and a jazz flute quartet.
