How It Works
at CATALYST NUTRITION AND TRAINING

We’re so happy you’re interested in fueling your body and improving your health with us at Catalyst Nutrition and Training! The right foods can help you manage disease, get fit, and live a more rewarding life.

Speaking of all this - you’re probably wondering how seeing a Catalyst dietitian works. You may know what we offer and how we help you but not what you can expect when you walk through our door or get on a call with us.

We’re here to lay this all out for you. This is the patient experience at Catalyst Nutrition and Training!

Reach out to us if we can be of any further help!

The Catalyst Nutrition and Training Patient Experience

1. Get in Touch

You begin by getting in touch with us through any of our channels to tell us who you are and what you’re experiencing. You can reach us in the following ways:

 

2. Schedule an Initial Consultation

We get back to you to schedule an initial consultation, where we learn about your symptoms and health goals. Our patients come to us for all kinds of reasons, from disease management to weight loss to body recomposition. Depending on what you need, we can enroll you in any of our three programs:

 

  • Nutrition counseling - This is where we put our dietitian brains to their best use. We educate YOU in using food to manage conditions such as IBS, acid reflux, diabetes, and PCOS. We offer nutrition counseling in person in our Kingston, PA, office and online through Healthie’s secure video conferencing.

 

  • Online nutrition coaching - Here is where we get to wear our nutritionist hats. Online nutrition coaching involves us educating you on the healthy food choices that can help you reach your wellness goals. Through weekly virtual check-ins, we provide accountability and guidance on optimizing your diet to work for you!

 

  • Online personal training - We use an app to design custom workout regimens for you to follow from week to week. We personalize the programming to you so you can accomplish what you want without feeling overwhelmed. Every exercise features detailed instructions and a video demonstration. We check in with you regularly to address any concerns and keep you on track.

 

We are always happy to meet with you virtually for your appointments, but many of our patients enjoy coming into our Pierce St. office in Kingston for that face-to-face interaction. Here’s a little sneak peek:

3. Complete Intake Forms

Once you’re scheduled, we create an account for you in our HIPAA-secured platform called Healthie. Prior to your first appointment, we use Healthie to send you numerous intake forms to complete. It’s fast and easy to submit these right inside the platform, but if online paperwork just isn’t for you, we can provide hard copies at your appointment!

 

Whether on paper or online, your forms include the following:

 

  • New patient nutrition assessment

  • Nutritional supplement informed consent

  • Insurance coverage information

  • Billing information

  • Telehealth informed consent

  • HIPAA agreement

  • Office policies

 

We encourage all new patients to read through our insurance page to learn how insurance works at our practice!

 

Although you’re free to complete these forms in the office with us, doing so beforehand ensures you can spend your consultation talking to us about what matters most: your health!

4. Start Your Customized Plan

Your consultation is where we devise a nutritional approach to help you meet your health goals. We customize everything to you. Whether you need to manage high blood pressure or diabetes, lose weight, or reduce IBD flare-ups, we can find the foods that work for you and fit your lifestyle.

 

We empower our patients through education at Catalyst. That means we send you home with the knowledge you need to maintain your customized nutrition plan until your follow-up appointment.

 

But don’t worry: we’re with you every step of the way. You can contact us on Healthie between appointments if you have questions or need to check in. We are your guide and biggest champion on this journey!

5. Modify Along the Way

Our bodies respond to nutrition and exercise in different ways. We track your progress to determine what’s working and where we may need to switch things up.

 

As you achieve certain milestones, we may modify your plan to account for changing conditions. We could suggest adding in more of a food or changing the timing of certain meals.

 

Everything we do is a collaboration with you, so we always make sure you’re comfortable with the alterations we recommend.

6. Live a Healthier Life

Here at Catalyst Nutrition and Training, we don’t want our patients to have to see us forever. Our goal is to help you get healthy by teaching you nutrition habits that last a lifetime. When you fuel your body with the right foods, you allow yourself to lead a richer, more fulfilling life.

We love seeing our patients succeed. When you’re happy and healthy due to your new and improved relationship with food, that’s all the motivation we need to keep doing what we do.
