Learn, Manage, Live
Millions of people today have diabetes. When the disease is properly managed it is possible to lead a full and active life. However, learning how to manage the disease can seem challenging and frustrating. As part of your diabetes care team a Registered Dietitian can help you learn more about diabetes and can help you implement the skills you need to manage the disease.

Goals for Living
“I know what I need to do to lose weight, I just need to do it.” We’ve all said it before but over 70% of American adults remain overweight or obese. Weight loss is not easy and weight maintenance is even harder. A Registered Dietitian can help you set reasonable weight loss goals and will help you implement the skills you have to achieve them.
If you’re looking for a quick fix you’ve come to the wrong place. At Cascade Nutrition Consulting we believe that the most successful weight loss plans combine diet, exercise, behavioral therapy and most importantly time. Talking to a Registered Dietitian is a good first step on your weight loss journey.

What You're Made Of
Body Composition Analysis
If you aren’t familiar with the practice, body composition analysis (BCA) is the process of examining the human body to determine the percentage of body fat compared to muscle tissue. Many medical professionals are now looking to body composition, as opposed to the outdated Body Mass Index (BMI), as a means of determining how healthy an individual’s body is.
How Does BCA Work?
At Cascade Nutrition Consulting we use the Tanita Professional Multi-Frequency Body Composition Monitor. All Tanita body composition monitors use advanced Bioelectric Impedance Analysis (BIA) technology. When you stand on a Tanita monitor, a very low, safe electrical signal is sent from four metal electrodes through your feet to your legs and abdomen.
The electrical signal passes quickly through water that is present in hydrated muscle tissue but meets resistance when it hits fat tissue. This resistance, known as impedance, is measured and input into scientifically validated Tanita equations to calculate body composition measurements. Body composition measurements are non-invasive and are provided in under 20 seconds.
