VA Nutrition Counseling Options:
At this time, the VA (Tricare) has not been covering nutrition counseling with us for those going through bariatric surgery with UT Health. We wanted to provide you a couple of options so you can decide what will work best for you!
Option 1: Pre-Recorded Nutrition Course: $75
This course is pre-recorded and you can watch it whenever you want and as many times as you need up to 1 year after purchase date. It goes through all the low carb information along with the liquid diet instructions for 2 weeks before and after surgery. This is a great tool if you have a busy schedule and are an auditorial and visual learner.
This course still provides all of the information you need to be successful, along with access to ask me any questions! If you feel like you need more individualized information after surgery, we can always schedule a follow-up.
Course Value: $150
Option 2: 1-on-1 Virtual Appointments with us:
This is like any traditional appointment where you will meet with me (virtually) to get your nutrition counseling information. The first appointment (pre-op) is $100 and we will go through all the information you need to know to be successful along with the liquid diet instructions.
If you would like to continue with 1-on-1 appointments after surgery, they are $50 each. You will receive continued nutrition support that is individualized to you and whichever weight loss surgery procedure you have.
