Nutrition and Fitness

Clinical Stay Fit
This program is a self-monitored, medically supervised exercise program is aimed at helping you develop lifelong exercise habits while reducing medical risks.
Nutrition Counseling
With the UnityPoint Health – Meriter nutrition services program, you will receive nutrition counseling on topics such as meal planning, appropriate food choices, portion sizes and reading food labels.

Good nutrition is one of the basic building blocks of living a healthy life. Too often, we know what we "should" eat, but have a hard time following through on a daily basis. At Meriter, we believe that you can have a healthy diet and eat delicious foods. We also know that only having strict goals is not the best way to lose weight or improve health. Nutrition plans should be well balanced, incorporate safe, healthy guidelines and be specialized according to the wants and needs of the individual.
Medical Nutrition Therapy

Our registered dietitians provide medical nutrition therapy for a wide variety of diseases and conditions, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease treatment and prevention, weight management and digestive health.

Medical nutrition therapy focuses on diet and lifestyle changes that can prevent or reduce your health risks. Working together as a team, you and your dietitian will develop a plan tailored to your nutritional and medical needs. Your dietitian will act as your guide down the path to nutritional wellness and improved health and quality of life.

During a meeting with a Registered Dietitian, you can expect to:

  • Receive guidance in adopting a healthy eating plan to manage a specific health issue
  • Develop a plan and set attainable goals that fit into your lifestyle
  • Learn strategies to manage weight, as well as, learn the basics of a healthy diet to promote health and prevent disease
  • Address and remove barriers to make it easier to change behaviors
Exercise Consults
