Nutrition Counseling

At Lifexcel, our dietitians are committed to providing you with evidence-based recommendations. We stand for science! We do not have any additional products to sell you.  We don’t believe in quick fixes or drastic changes you cannot sustain. We can help with your weight loss goals and/or managing a medical condition.

We believe eating healthy is only part of a healthy lifestyle.  Lifestyle changes take time.  Progress not perfection is what we are looking for.

We ask our clients to commit to working with us for a minimum of 6 weeks for weekly sessions.  This is based on history and learning what works for lasting change and what does not. We are much more than just dispensers of information.  We are transformation coaches!  Transformation and lifestyle change takes time.  Be patient with yourself!  We expect progress not perfection.

All of our sessions take place either in our Charlotte office or virtually through our HIPAA-compliant platform.

Weight Loss

Temporary Changes Lead To Temporary Results

We LOVE to help clients who are ready to lose weight for the last time.  One thing we know is that even though weight loss clients have the same goal, using a cookie cutter approach to weight loss does not work! Your journey starts with an assessment with a registered dietitian where we will get to know you.

We don’t recommend nor do we sell fat burners, appetite suppressants, detox products, etc.  We talk about real food and how you can make changes that are sustainable for a lifetime.

As nutrition professionals we only recommend evidence-based treatments. We recognize no area of medicine is more rapidly changing than nutrition.  We are committed to keeping up with research and our recommendations reflect this commitment.

Identifying the root cause of why you are overweight enables us to customize your treatment plan. We offer two different weight loss program options, depending on what your root cause is.

Lifexcel Weight Loss

Emotional Eating

If you answer yes to these 3 questions, we have a program that may be a game changer!

  1. You already know what to eat and how much to eat.  Your struggle is consistently sticking to the plan when temptation comes along.
  2. You have a persistent battle in your mind that says “eat it, no don’t eat it” and more than 50% of the time, you give in. This is often accompanied by feelings of guilt, shame or regret.
  3. Your relationship with food causes you significant distress.

Pediatric Nutrition

Parents – one of the best gifts you can give your child is to teach them healthy eating habits. At Lifexcel we recognize that today’s society does not make it easy. We live in a world of fast food and supersized portions. Our children learn to celebrate every event with food and spend hours every day playing on their computers. Lifexcel registered dietitian, Jennifer Smith sees children ages 5 and up and she can help with picky eaters, underweight children, overweight children, anorexia and bulimia.

Jennifer makes learning about nutrition fun and interactive! You and your child will learn:

  • Appropriate Portion Sizes

  • How to identify physical hunger from other types of hunger

  • Basic nutrition principles such as calories, carbohydrates, and vitamins

  • How to make healthy snack choices

  • The effects of eating too much or eating too little


If your child has a specific medical condition not mentioned here we may be able to help or refer you to someone who can.  Give us a call today to discuss.
