Nutrition Q&A

What is nutrition?

Nutrition describes the substances your body needs to create the energy you need to function. Nutrients that are essential to a high quality of life include:

  • Fats
  • Water
  • Proteins
  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Carbohydrates

Good nutrition supports your overall health and can lower your risk for chronic health issues, including obesity, Type 2 diabetes, and heart disease. Without proper nutrition, you might experience a range of symptoms, including persistent fatigue that negatively affects your biological function and vitality.

The office of Bobby S. Bhasker-Rao MD, Inc. specializes in individualized nutritional counseling programs for overweight or obese adults who don’t qualify for weight loss surgery. Dr. Bobby can also create a nutrition plan to support consistent weight loss if you prefer not to have surgery.

Good nutrition is also vital following bariatric surgery, and nutritional counseling is available to support your postsurgical recovery and your continued weight loss journey.
