General & Sports Nutrition

Proper nutrition is important to athletes and non athletes alike. Fueling the body with the building blocks to maximize performance or just to maintain good health requires clinical nutrition knowledge. Dr Bhakta believes that every patient can slowly change to a healthy eating habit without having to give up all the foods that they like. We offer a comprehensive approach to assess your nutritional needs and overall health status. Diagnostic laboratory tests for blood, saliva and hair analysis are incorporated into each individual plan. We utilize pharmaceutical grade vitamins and supplements to insure that you are receiving the nutrients that your body requires.

Sports Nutrition

An athlete requires the correct balance of macronutrients (proteins, fats, and carbohydrate) and micronutrients (vitamins & minerals) based on the demand of the sport and the position of the sport. This demand fluctuates based on the training phase and the competitive status of the athlete. Dr. Bhakta implements the correct nutritional strategies for the athletes based on their level of training, phase of training, and current nutritional status.

Sports nutrition science has become complicated by the ever expanding nature of ergogenic aids (performance enhancing substances) available to the athletes. Proper incorporation of these are paramount to any athlete wanting to go to the next level. The NCAA, Olympics via the World Anti-Doping Agency, and multiple other athletic organizations have banned many of these substances for competitive use. There are some substances that are allowed and can be successfully incorporated into the nutrition program. Don't play the guessing game, get professional help when it comes to sports nutrition.
