When you are providing your clients with a nutritional and healthcare service, you are basically constructing a more refined lifestyle regime that will help them live healthier lives. So, in order to help them live a healthier life, you at least need to know their current lifestyle and assess what’s wrong with it.
To remedy this requirement, leading nutritionists around the world are creating their own lifestyle assessment form to get a closer glimpse into their onboarding client’s lifestyles.
Here are a few ways in which a lifestyle assessment form can enhance your practice and help you treat your clients more effectively:
While creating your lifestyle assessment form, make sure that you include all these elements to equip yourself with all the necessary information:
The first and foremost thing you need to record is your client’s dietary preferences. Whether or not do they eat meat or do they follow a vegan diet. This way you can determine the perfect protein and nutritional sources that you should add to their diet plan.
It is extremely important to record your client’s allergies. Adding elements in the diet plan that your client is allergic to can put their lives at risk and prove to be a big red mark for your practice. Furthermore, if your client realizes that they aren’t comfortable with a specific element of the diet and they omit it, it can also imbalance the nutritional stats and not provide the required effect.
Creating a diet plan which includes elements that your client likes can really impact their compliance. They will be more comfortable in following the diet plan and show expected results. Along with that, you should also have a dedicated segment in your form that records the frequency of how often they go out to eat.
Specifically for Indian clients, there are a lot of religions where people have fasting days. On these days, they can either have one proper meal a day or no meal at all. Hence, you need to include this element in your form to make the necessary arrangements for such days.
Smoking and alcohol consumptions make a big difference in a person’s lifestyle. While smoking is definitely detrimental to one’s health, one or two units of alcohol per day can help your clients deal with stress. Nonetheless, you should keep them regulated and stay informed of how frequently they indulge in them.
In this process, we will see what's inside a client's food and lifestyle assessment form.
Food and lifestyle assessment asks about the food specifications, preferences, and eats out smoking and alcohol frequency.

This can help you develop a more efficient and effective practice where your onboarding clients are assured an easy-to-follow treatment plan.
