In-house at SportsLab I use a computer analysis programs that is used by hospitals, universities, and medical researchers to analyze my clients dietary intake before making any recommendations.
Although entirely optional (except for metabolic and digestive diseases) I strongly suggest a full micro-nutrient panel be done along with a three to four day dietary intake analysis before any real changes or recommendations are made to the current diet beyond what is obvious.
Some of the obvious things however, can begin almost right away.
These are things such as (rough) Estimated Daily Energy Expenditure (daily caloric intake). Cutting out fast foods, minimizing processed sugars and wheat…etc. and learning why and how these things negatively effect you.
