The PHD Philosophy
OPTIMIZE YOUR PERFORMANCE, HEALTH AND DIET!
Welcome to PHD Advanced Nutrition where we are truly passionate about how what we eat influences our quality and quantity of life. We are so glad you happened upon our website; our Team looks forward to the possibility of helping you achieve your health and/or performance goals.
Finding the appropriate Team of professionals to help guide you along this journey can be a challenge. At PHD Advanced Nutrition, we want you to be confident that you have chosen the “right” fit for your unique needs before committing to work with us. In our clinic, we use whole foods, nutrient timing, nutrition education, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help our clients achieve their goals. Unlike many others in the field, we do not agree with all of the existing dietary conventional wisdom; we do not feel bound by the current dietary guidelines or common weight loss techniques as the majority are not based on the rigorous science that such recommendations necessitate. The dietary and lifestyle practices that we recommend will be unique to you, and we will help you adopt them slowly to ensure long lasting results. For some individuals, these changes may be significant, but fully possible. Change can be a challenging journey, but an exciting one that we will help you navigate.
KEEPING CURRENT WITH RESEARCH IN DIETETICS
In the profession of dietetics, it is imperative to remain up-to-date on current research and as a doctorate in the field of nutrition, our founder Dr. Ashley Lucas, continues to do so, as does our PHD Team. In our clinics, we are open to implementing new techniques when it comes to finding the best nutrition to support whatever your goal may be, be it improving your sport performance, overall health or your current diet. We practice with the belief that every person is truly an individual, and therefore acknowledge that what works for one may not work for another. We continuously strive to find what is best for each individual to support their unique metabolism, lifestyle, and health/performance goals.
IMPROVING HEALTH & TRANSFORMING LIVES
Our nutrition practice has allowed us to meet and work with many people; We’ve enjoyed helping our clients achieve their goals and witnessing the many positive changes brought forth by adjusting lifestyle behaviors and enhancing nutrition knowledge. We look forward to the possibility of working with you and discovering your unique path to attaining optimal health!
