At Magnolia Creek, we meet the needs of the whole person by treating not only the eating disorder, but also the mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of each woman in our care. We believe that All Foods Fit, meaning there are no “bad” foods and there is room for all foods. Our holistic approach allows us to help our clients to honor their hunger and fullness cues and to understand that all body types were created for a purpose.
Upon admission to Magnolia Creek, clients will meet with a registered dietitian within 48 hours for an initial nutrition assessment. For their first 48 hours, clients are placed on a standardized meal plan. During the initial nutrition assessment, the client will receive an individualized meal plan tailored specifically to their needs to meet their weight restoration goals.
After completion of the initial nutrition assessment, clients will meet weekly with their dietitian for 30-90 minutes to discuss any nutrition-related topic ranging from education of macronutrients to discussing the functions of their eating disorder to developing acceptance/tolerance of their current body as it restores weight. As progress is made, clients gain freedom and responsibility related to meal planning, preparation, and dining.
