Gearing up for a healthy 2017 with GSC’s Dietitian Health Coaching program

January 25, 2017

Making health conscious decisions when it comes to our eating habits isn’t exactly the most intuitive...especially when coming off of a whirlwind of holiday treats and feasts. And while we’re firm believers that the key to a healthy and happy diet is to enjoy everything in moderation (how can we say no to a slice of pizza?), we’re well aware that lean protein and veggies surpass cheeseburgers and fries in the long run.

But because consuming a well-balanced diet is much easier said than done, we’ve decided to launch a dietitian health coaching program...because simply put, we can all use a little help (from a dietitian friend) once in a while. And what better time of year to learn to resist certain temptations…

About the program

The Dietitian Health Coaching program, offered as part of GSC’s Change4Life® health management initiative, is a service provided by registered dietitians at select Loblaw and Sobeys stores that focuses on improving your health by making better choices when it comes to your food.

The program consists of four sessions, delivered over four to eight months with a registered dietitian at a participating store location.

You can click here to view a list of locations offering this program.

Please note: your plan may not cover Dietitian Health Coaching (you’ll want to confirm with your benefits representative if you are unsure). IF it’s not included – don’t worry! You can still benefit from GSC’s Dietitian Health Coaching at a preferred rate (you’ll just have to pay out of pocket).

How do I get started?

To make an appointment, simply send your request by clicking here to contact Loblaw (dietitian@loblaw.ca), or here to contact Sobeys Pharmacy (http://sobeyspharmacy.com/greenshield).

In addition to being an existing GSC plan member, you will need to provide the following information: Name, GSC ID number, along with your address, phone number, and preferred method of contact.

A registered dietitian will then reach out to you to arrange a convenient time for your first appointment. They will also contact GSC and verify your benefits plan coverage.

What if there isn’t a store near me offering the program?

GSC has you covered! If your community does not have a participating store offering the Dietitian Health Coaching program, you can still participate in the program remotely through telephone counselling. Use the same contact method described above to arrange an appointment and get started!
