Setting Treatment Goal Weights (TGW)- RDN tools
Come to the phone conference call with a sample client and send me the growth records prior to the call and be prepared to give a 5-minute case presentation. Including diagnosis, case history, and current age/stage of treatment. Ideal for adolescent clients.
Key data points:
Identify high weight, low weight, desired weight, and weight when period stopped or resumed. Obtain both parents' heights. Note weight history specific influences that impact energy deficit: (e.g. became vegetarian, started cross country, ED behaviors such as the start of counting calories, purging, etc.). Assess frequency of self-weighing and where they weigh?
Obtain other metabolic signs (hormones, vitals, and mood) if you are seeking input for TGW at the end of the treatment. Price includes all forms, step-by-step instruction, and 15-20 minutes coaching session.
Most importantly professionals need to focus on a state of health and not just a weight or a certain number.
