Make an appointment with our Nutrition Staff to analyze your daily diet. Our database contains the nutritional information of more than 29,000 foods. Learn about how you can improve your diet and make it more well-rounded to fit your personal needs and goals. To prepare for your appointment with one of our nutrition counselors, you will need to keep a food journal for at least three days with everything you eat and all of your physical activity. When you meet with our staff, you will get back a report on what you ate, your full nutrient profile, and the percentage of that goal that you achieved. Our staff will then give you personal nutrition advice to improve your diet based on this scientific analysis. Open to all UC Davis faculty, staff, and students. Come in to the Living Well Center to pick up a packet and get started.
