Unlock your potential with food!
We all know that balanced nutrition is important to our health, but did you know that it can be vital to your athletic performance or your recovery from an injury? The right foods provide our energy throughout the day and keep us strong and healthy, but with the busy life that most of us lead, it can sometimes be difficult to find the right balance between healthy eating and convenience.
Natalie Robertello is UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine’s registered dietician and works with patients through YoUBWell. Starting with an initial conversation about your lifestyle – including your habits and hobbies, schedule and work demands, athletic pursuits, chronic diseases or conditions and more – our team will help put together a comprehensive plan for your day-to-day needs that can help you feel and perform at your best. We understand that everyone has different needs and goals, which is why we consult directly with you in a one-on-one approach that allows our dieticians to develop an individual plan that’s tailored for you and your specific needs.
Our team also works closely with high school, collegiate and professional athletes, and offer insights, guidance and advice on the best way for athletes to stay healthy and active. Our dieticians can help ensure you have the right fuel you need for workouts and training, including the balance of nutrients and minerals your body needs to compete at your best. We also work with patients in advance of a planned surgery to reach and maintain a target weight ahead of their operation to help with their overall health and aid in delivering a more rapid recovery.
Our team understands that you may have a busy schedule and juggle many different obligations and needs, whether it’s working a second job or a night shift or raising young children. We work with patients on an outpatient basis, beginning with a one-hour initial consultation to discuss your meal timing, lifestyle choices, overall health goals and more. Find out how small changes to your nutrition and diet can make big changes in your life. Schedule your initial consultation today by calling UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine at 716.204.3200.
