What is Nutritional Assessment?
A nutritional assessment is taken from a 5 to 7 day diet journal in which you record the exact foods, brands, and portion sizes you are eating in a regular day. The nutritionist then analyses your intake on a computer program that generates a print-out of your results.The results will give percentages each day of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates, as well as your comparative intake to the DRI's (Dietary Reference Intakes).
A nutritional assessment can also be a 1 hour session in which the nutritionist asks you questions regarding your symptoms or health and evaluates whether you have any apparent nutritional deficiencies. She may look at your face, tongue, nails, or other signs. She may ask about your digestive symptoms and habits, your bowel habits, and your energy levels.This is based on her knowledge and training in the field of nutrition and biochemistry.
