Nutrition Counseling

Your relationship with food and your body has significant implications on your academic and job performance, physical health, and even your emotional well-being and social life. Working with a dietitian can give you the edge you need to reach your full potential.

Students with nutrition-related health concerns can schedule an individual consultation with a registered dietitian at UHS by calling 512-475-8010. Our dietitians work closely with the UHS medical and counseling staff to ensure consistency and quality of care.

Dietitian Approach

Our dietitians specialize in the prevention and management of nutrition related diseases, eating disorder assessment, and strategies to meet an individual’s nutritional needs for optimal health and longevity. Through ongoing nutrition counseling, they provide a nonjudgmental space to guide you through the abundance of nutrition information available while collaboratively developing a personalized eating plan for you. Our nutrition program uses intuitive eating and mindful based strategies to encourage sustainable lifelong health that encompasses mind, body, and spirit. Our team is most concerned about your health and well-being and therefore utilizes a non-diet, health at every size treatment approach.
