Left Shadow Right Shadow

Nutrition makeover


Is your diet the pits? Do you feel it needs improvement? Let Skiff's wellness experts help you determine where you stand nutritionally. Submit a five-day diet history, including one weekend. Tell us everything! Be sure to include specific amounts, such as a half-cup of green beans and the specific type of food, such as 8 oz. of skim milk. Don`t forget to let us know the beverages you drink, such as diet or regular pop and juices. We also need to know your gender, current weight and height. These details are very important to develop accurate results. We will analyze your diet and provide you with a complete printout. We will indicate deficiencies, excesses and provide suggestions on how to improve your diet. Along with this, a variety of nutrition information will be provided, such as a guide to good eating, a fat and calorie guide, healthy recipes and a restaurant guide.

Along with the diet history, provide us with your typical exercise routine. We will provide you with detailed information pertaining to your exercise and make suggestions on how to improve it.

As a part of the nutrition makeover, a free recipe analysis is available. Submit your favorite recipe and we will analyze it. The nutritional analysis will provide you with information on calories, fat, carbohydrates, sodium, and fiber along with nearly 40 other components based on the number of servings the recipe makes. Next, we will provide suggestions on how to alter the recipe to make it healthier.

This service is available to you at the cost of $40. Please send payment along with your five-day diet history to:
