    Our Real World Nutrition Approach

    At Aspire Eating Disorder Treatment Center Sacramento, we believe that the best way to help someone learn how to eat the right way is to let them practice over and over again until they learn for themselves. The alternate method of choosing and preparing meals for the patients does nothing to help them once they are back on their own.  What follows is a brief list of treatment components that we believe give our patients the best chance to stay healthy and free of their eating disorder behaviors once they graduate one of our programs:
    • Weekly meal outings at local restaurants.

      This is an important part of recovery because patients are forced to face their struggles in a real world environment, with a lot of support and supervision to help them.
    • Challenge foods.

      We encourage our patients to practice eating challenge foods that may have contributed to their eating disorder, so that in the future they do not have to have the same fears that they did before coming into treatment.
    • Choice, Choice, Choice!

      While our patients are given general guidelines about what foods they need to incorporate into their diet (based on their individualized meal plan), they are free to choose the foods that they want.  Over time, this freedom helps them to learn how to shop and prepare meals that they can be confident about and enjoy without any worries or hesitation.
    • Preparing Meals.

      Our patients learn how to prepare healthy and well-balanced meals while at Aspire Wellness Center, which is something most of our patients are not accustomed to before they admit into our program.
    • All dietary preferences accepted (i.e. vegetarian, vegan, kosher, etc.).

      Of course, we help the patients to identify any unhealthy food restrictions that may be contributing to their eating behaviors, and will not allow them to maintain a dietary preference that is a major contributing factor to their eating disorder behaviors.
    • Eye Ball approach to portion sizing.

      Most people struggle with portion sizing because we never learn how much we are supposed to eat, and instead eat what restaurants put on our plate regardless of the portion size.  Our program teaches patients how to estimate proper portion size without needing to rely on food scales or calorie counting.
