The Best Diet For You
By Mergynette G. Mercado, RND
Nutritionist, Aegle Wellness Center
There’s been a long-standing debate on what should be considered the perfect diet. Is there really such a thing as a perfect diet? There are numerous diet programs available worldwide—from therapeutic diets like ketogenic and diabetic, to intermittent fasting, vegetarian, Paleo, and more. Almost all of the diets that exist claim to be superior to the rest, and it can be overwhelming to decide which one is worth trying.
But in reality, there is no superior diet. More specifically, there is no single perfect diet that works for everyone. Just as human fingerprints are unique to every individual, the perfect diet for each person is based uniquely on what their body needs. With Aegle Nutrition Science’s customized programs, finding the perfect diet for you has never been easier.
Aegle Nutrition Science’s Customized Nutrition Programs utilize personalized, science-based, and comprehensive methods to effectively improve your health through nutrition. These programs focus on adapting sustainable and healthy eating habits not only through your macro- and micronutrient needs, but also your current physical activities, medical history, food habits, and food preferences. Together with your nutritionist-dietitian, you will work on effective strategies towards making sustainable changes in your dietary habits and discover what works best for you.
1. Personalized Nutrition Consultation
All programs start with a one-on-one consultation with an Aegle nutritionist-dietitian at your convenience, in person or through video call.
