About Us

Optimum Intake Dietitians

Optimum Intake Dietitians will provide you with dietary education on how to change not only what, but how you eat and how to achieve optimum nourishment for your body as you transition through this process.. Although some eating changes can sound simple, in reality, breaking years of eating habits can be hard and your team is there to support you through both the successes and the set backs along the way. We will help you to understand and manage the changes you may experience so you can make the best decisions for you. From experience we have found that this support and education is fundamental to long-term success with bariatric surgery.
