A Look at Tennessee Fitness Spa’s Nutritional Program
At Tennessee Fitness Spa, we serve nutritious, healthy meals that are low in fat, sodium and sugar. This allows our guests to begin developing eating habits that can help to control blood pressure and blood sugar while contributing to their overall weight loss efforts. In creating our program, we used the following guidelines set forth by the American Heart Association and American Dietetic Association:
- 1200 to 1400 calories per day, excluding salad bar and snacks
- 1200 mg or less of sodium per day
- 15% or less in simple sugar per day
- 20% or less of fat per day
- 40% of complex carbohydrates per day
- 40% of protein per day
Adhering to guidelines that promote healthy eating doesn’t mean that foods can’t be enjoyable, though! A number of foods that are low in fat, sugar and sodium – such as pork, beans and cruciferous vegetables – are both wholesome and delicious. Our cooks are well-trained in creating tasty, healthful foods. For example, a typical menu may offer a ham and cheese frittata for breakfast, citrus chicken fajitas for lunch and toasted almond and tomato crusted tilapia for dinner. Part of our mission at Tennessee Fitness Spa is to show our guests that healthy eating doesn’t have to be a painful or difficult process.
Of course, our kitchen staff is also able to provide food substitutes for vegan or vegetarian guests as well as those that have allergies, medical restrictions or personal preferences. We can also accommodate special dietary plans, such as the Paleo Diet, gluten-free diet and so forth. Regardless of your dietary restrictions, our staff is here to work with you to establish healthier, more nutritious eating habits.
At Tennessee Fitness Spa, the aim of our nutritional program is to provide that initial spark of inspiration. We know that, once you go home, it’s easy to fall back into bad eating habits. Our goal is to show you that it can be just as easy – and enjoyable – to continue eating in a way that promotes your long term health.
