WEIGHT LOSS

MV Nutrition provides results. People can lose up to 44 pounds in 6 months and best of all, 84% of our clients have kept the weight off and have maintained their weight loss after a year of losing weight. To learn more about our statistical results, please visit About MV Nutrition.


MV Nutrition follows the Whole Body Reboot program for weight management. It's a program that encourages eating more, not less. Eating Free means eating what you like, when you like, where you like. It’s an approach that frees you from guilt, emotional eating, boring meals and hunger pangs. And, it's a program that will teach you the truth about exercise. While it's great for health, it's not the key to weight loss. With Eating Free, you'll learn that, if you only have a few extra hours in the week, you'll be better off shopping and preparing the right foods and taking some time to de-stress than killing yourself to bust out an hour on the treadmill. Taking time to care for yourself, to eat and nourish your body; prioritize your health and diet; manage your work and stress load; relax and sleep, is the key to your health and weight.


• Do you need to lose weight?
• Are you exercising and not losing weight?
• Do you feel tired or sluggish?
• Do you feel guilty when eating?
• Can you maintain your weight loss?
• Are you at a plateau phase in your weight loss?

SPOKESPERERSON

With his 16 years of experience in the field of food and nutrition, and published author, Manuel is a respected and trusted voice in the health, wellness, and food industry. Manuel has extensive experience working as a spokesperson. He acted as a national spokesperson for the academy of nutrition and dietetics, which made him an in demand bilingual spokesperson.
He has represented national food companies such as Eggland’s Best, Pop Chips. He has also served as a spokesperson for statewide campaigns for the “California Latino 5-A-Day Program” and “Got Milk”.


He acted as a media representative for the brand Foster Farms (one of the largest chicken producers on the West Coast). Their campaign enlisted him as their trusted Foster Farms’ nutritionist to serve as the key spokesperson. He acted as a primary brand ambassador to discuss the health attributes of Foster Farms’ chicken compared to “plumped” chicken competitors, and further explained the contribution of high-sodium consumption and other poor nutrition habits to ailments prevalent in the Latino community such as cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity.


The program was widely successful in informing consumers about plumping and convincingly differentiating Foster Farms’ truly natural products from the saltwater-injected products of its competitors. The event strategy helped forge over 400,000 personal interactions with consumers and media hits yielded over two million media impressions. By the end of 2009, their efforts resulted in increasing brand awareness and maintaining Foster Farms’ position as the preferred poultry brand of Latino consumers in California, despite the brand’s premium price and an economic recession. Furthermore, company research revealed that PR initiatives had a high recall rate among Latino consumers.


Manuel is now the Chief of Public Relations for the Pichuberry Company and is responsible for developing and conduction Pichuberry’s public relations campaigns regionally, and nationwide.

MV Nutrition offers a wide range of services from Medical Nutrition Therapy to nutrition counseling for preganant and lactating mothers and vegetarians.

Medical Nutrition Therapy

Medical nutrition therapy (MNT) can improve patients' health and quality of life, effectively treat and manage disease, reduce complications and decrease the need for prescription drugs. It can help patients manage conditions such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, kidney disease, obesity and related complications, cancer, and HIV/AIDS.

Cardiovascular Disease and Hypertension

Using medical nutrition therapy, MV Nutrition will assist you in achieving normal levels of your total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and triglycerides. Learn how to choose foods that can decrease your “bad” cholesterol and increase you “good” cholesterol. You will learn about omega 6 and omega 3 polyunsaturated fats, monounsaturated fats, saturated fats, and how to implement these fats into your diet.

Diabetes

MV Nutrition uses medical nutrition therapy to help you achieve and maintain optimal blood glucose and blood lipid levels through appropriate food choices. An individualized menu plan will be provided that will supply calories for ideal weight maintenance and improve overall health.

Digestive Disorders

Digestive disorders are common diseases that often originate in the food supply. Diet revision should be primary therapy. The gastrointestinal tract is a sensing, reactive device which monitors the material flowing through it. Symptoms arising from this system provide information about its dysfunction. Seven basic symptoms alert you to the gastrointestinal tract's displeasure with your food choices - nausea, heartburn, vomiting, bloating, abdominal pain, constipation, and diarrhea.

HIV/AIDS Nutrition

Many people with HIV/ AIDS are experiencing lypodystrophy syndrome which can lead to fat wasting, insulin resistance, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, and eventually cardiovascular disease. Studies are showing that these problems persist despite the use of Highly Active Anti-Retroviral Therapy. Good nutrition helps keep your immune system strong, enabling you to better fight disease. A healthy diet improves quality of life. Also, a well-balanced diet helps the body process the many medications taken by people with HIV.
