Most of us have a favorite grocery store. We know what’s in each aisle and exactly where the staples and guilty pleasures are. However, when we go in that same store with a renewed mission of healthy eating, we become strangers in a foreign land. Where do I start? Do I have to read every label? Is gluten an ingredient? Is frozen better than canned? Does every fruit and vegetable need to be organic?
At Lifestyle Medical Center, we understand the conundrum. This is why we offer grocery store tours as part of our service. We believe that healthy eating should be a practical and enjoyable lifestyle change, and our registered dietitians are ready to help you navigate the aisles to achieve your health goals.
How Grocery Store Tours Help You Reach Your Goals

Let us teach you how to incorporate more high quality foods into your diet, as well as learn what packaged foods are more likely to support your weight management goals.
