Nutrition Counseling

Nutrition Counseling at the Wellness Center is a lifestyle based approach to achieving optimal health and wellness through balanced nutrition. When meeting with our nutritionist, one thing you will not receive is a "diet." Our nutritionist will work with you to create a personalized nutrition plan that incorporates your lifestyle and exercise habits, nutrition needs, and personal health and wellness goals. Through her professional experience, our nutritionist has helped hundreds of clients improve their health with nutrition.

Meet Our Dietitian

DanielleFournetBorn and raised in the New Orleans area, Danielle Fournet began her career in dietetics due to her love of food! She earned a Bachelor of Science degree with a concentration in Nutritional Sciences as well as a minor in Business Administration from Louisiana State University in 2009.

Thereafter, Danielle completed a dietetic internship at the University of Houston, where she worked in the largest medical complex in the world. She then became a registered and licensed dietitian/nutritionist in 2010, when she joined the team of professionals at Christus St. Michael Health System in Texarkana, TX.

Working in one of the top ten places in healthcare, Danielle worked with inpatients and served as the outpatient dietitian, in which she counseled clients regarding various health topics, including diabetes, heart disease, chronic kidney disease, and weight management. In addition, she counseled patients at a local rehab hospital and long term acute care facility and served as an active member of the Pressure Ulcer Prevention Team.

Upon moving back home, Danielle now works for the EJGH Wellness Center and Corporate Wellness, where she routinely participates in community outreach events, health fairs, public speaking events, and panel discussions. She  has earned a Certificate of Training in Adult Weight Management and currently maintains membership in the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics as well as the Sports, Cardiovascular, and Wellness Nutrition Dietetics Practice Group. In summary, Danielle provides practical nutrition counseling targeted toward weight management, chronic disease prevention, and sports performance.

Wellness Center Nutrition Counseling

Individual counseling sessions are available at the Wellness Center. Individual sessions include techniques designed to decrease body fat and increase lean muscle mass; prevent chronic diseases; and optimize sports performance. Long-term lifestyle changes are not typically accomplished with just one visit. For that reason, Danielle recommends a 90 minute initial assessment with monthly follow up sessions to aid in accountability and consistency.

During your individual session, you will learn about your personal caloric needs and macronutrient needs, including carbohydrates, protein, and fat for your metabolism. Danielle can also help you improve your mood, boost your energy, and meet your vitamin and mineral needs through foods. She demonstrates how to use the latest technology to track your progress; how to navigate local restaurants; and how to incorporate your favorite foods into your individualized meal plan.
