Meal Plans for Specific Health Goals

Everyone has different needs and personal health goals. For example, some people might want to make dietary changes to better manage their weight, reduce chronic pain, or increase mobility. According to the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), “What we eat is considered an environmental factor that influences health, in positive and negative ways.” Home-delivered meals provide people with easy access to nutrition and a more balanced diet. In addition, LifeSpring Home Nutrition helps people build positive relationships with food by providing nutrition education, personalized meal plans, and weekly meal deliveries. 

What Are Meal Plans?

Meal plans are often created through collaboration between a registered dietician (RD), clients, and healthcare providers. LifeSpring Home Nutrition offers a wide range of different meal options. Meal planning involves creating a schedule and a list of food preferences to ensure people receive the type of food they want at a time that works best for them. Medically tailored meals (MTMs) are personalized to each client’s unique medical needs and personal preferences. The food is prepared fresh and flash-frozen to retain nutrients. Frozen meals conveniently allow people to plan their meals days.

Meal planning generally involves doing the following: 

  • Discussing health goals with an RD or healthcare provider 
  • Determining any dietary restrictions 
  • Creating a list of preferred foods 
  • Reviewing any nutritional requirements provided by a healthcare provider 

Everyone has different dietary requirements. Tailoring plans to each person ensures they receive foods meant to enrich their diet and improve their health. Meal planning is a collaborative effort that plays an essential role in educating individuals and families about the importance of balanced meals and proper nutrition. The RDs at LifeSpring Home Nutrition often have one-on-one discussions with clients to better understand their specific health goals. 

Meal Plans for Specific Health Goals

Most people have personal health goals they want to achieve with their tailored meal plans. The RDs at LifeSpring Home Nutrition offer multiple options for achieving those goals in a realistic time frame. Below are some common goals people want to achieve through diet, exercise, and other lifestyle changes.

Weight Management

Obesity and malnourishment are two common causes of preventable diseases. Weight management is about more than food and often requires significant lifestyle changes. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight includes healthy eating, physical activity, optimal sleep, and stress reduction.” LifeSpring Home Nutrition assists clients in creating meal plans for weight management. People who successfully manage their weight often experience multiple health benefits, including reduced symptoms of chronic illnesses. 

Muscle Building

According to the CDC, “Muscle-strengthening activity (MSA) has beneficial effects on hypertension, glucose homeostasis, and other health conditions . . . Substantial evidence indicates that moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) is associated with lowered risk of all-cause mortality and various chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and various types of cancer.” Building or strengthening muscles often requires dietary modifications. The body goes through significant changes during and after intense muscle-building activities, including physical therapy (PT). In addition, some individuals may need to rebuild muscles after severe injury, illness, or surgery. Strengthening muscles takes time, physical activity, and nutrient-rich meals. LifeSpring Home Nutrition offers tailored meal plans to support muscle building. 

Reduce the Effects of Aging

As people age, their body begins to work less efficiently. Age-related health issues can cause significant side effects, including loss of mobility and cognitive decline. Many health issues related to aging impact people’s diets and nutrition.

Some of the most common age-related medical issues include: 

  • Reduced ability to digest and absorb nutrients from foods 
  • Chewing or swallowing difficulty and dryness in the mouth affect the types of foods people eat
  • Decreased appetite or nausea may cause unintentional malnutrition and weight loss
  • Chronic constipation or diarrhea due to prescription medication or medical conditions causes dehydration 

Older adults often experience malnutrition and other health issues. LifeSpring Home Nutrition offers meal plans to address age-related medical conditions, including cognitive decline and special dietary needs.

Special Dietary Needs

Individuals with chronic or acute medical issues may have special dietary needs. People receiving meal deliveries from LifeSpring Home Nutrition can choose from the following specialized meal options: 

  • Diabetic friendly 
  • Recovery boost
  • Gluten friendly 
  • Brain health 
  • Cancer support
  • Heart healthy 
  • Renal
  • Purée 

The wide range of meal options allows people to access the types of foods they prefer while improving overall health and addressing specific dietary requirements. 

How Do LifeSpring Home Nutrition Meal Plans Support Health Goals?

Meal plans allow people to take control of their everyday health by decreasing the symptoms of chronic conditions and reducing the risk of preventable diseases. 

Meal planning helps people recover from, manage, or avoid the following: 

  • Chronic health issues
  • Acute medical conditions 
  • Age-related physical and cognitive decline 
  • Malnutrition 
  • Obesity

Meal planning is an essential part of health management for many people. According to the National Heart, Blood and Lung Institute (NHBLI), “A healthy eating plan gives your body the nutrients it needs every day.” Some individuals only need tailored meal plans temporarily, while others may benefit from more extensive dietary support. LifeSpring Home Nutrition provides personalized meal plans to ensure every person receives the type of food they need to heal and develop a healthier lifestyle.

Meal planning is an essential part of improving health and wellness for older adults, children, pregnant women, individuals with disabilities, and people experiencing medical health issues. LifeSpring Home Nutrition collaborates with clients and healthcare providers to provide medically tailored meals to help people meet their health goals.

I had a catastrophic event requiring a long hospital stay and at discharge my HMO offered Lifespring meal services. Initially, I was offered a puree diet and then as I improved a regular diet. Staff were kind, patient, and their supervisor, Christina was extremely accommodating. This is an amazing company who goes the extra mile to ensure patients receive their meals promptly. The food is delicious with a variety of meals. I would highly recommend Lifespring.

Balanced meals excellent customer service. Thank you
I've been receiving Lifespring meals for the past several years. I find them to be fresh, convenient, and delicious! The meals are both balanced and nutritious, and, because they are prepared fresh, and then flash frozen; all one needs is a microwave! Delivery is prompt and courteous, and if ever you want to make a change, the friendly office staff is available by phone. Thank you, Lifespring! 🤗😘
