For nutritionists and lifestyle management programs, we utilize client platforms to tailor the presentation of core nutrition services after assessment, and to foster the presentation of integrated services. Clients are educated through smart pre consult assessments. TriNourish serves as a hub to integrate local expertise and to assist you with your outreach effort for additional collaboration and/or penetration into other proactive markets.
The conventional health & wellness model is misguided because it seeks to motivate change by selling into existing biases and allowing participants to define their wellness priorities based on those biases. That strategy merely perpetuates those deeply ingrained, but misguided notions. A common bias is the notion that sleep is necessary for rest & recovery and that rest & recovery are expendable and can be deferred when productivity is on the line. That is patently false, not because rest & recovery should be forced, but because sleep is NOT rest & recovery. Sleep is an active orchestration of necessary processes that must occur, otherwise basic metabolic and mental dysfunctions will arise. Another widespread tacit assumption is that our own level of experienced sleepiness will directly indicate to us whether risks or dysfunctions have begun to manifest from poor sleep. That assumption is dangerously inaccurate.
In the domains of nutrition and exercise, the conventional view is that the nutrition-and-exercise duo consists of two ends of a single caloric energy budget for weight loss. By that common view, nutrition is to reduce calorie consumption and exercise is to increase calorie burning— each side addressed only to weight loss. That assumption, also, is radically inadequate. Nutrition is the flexible metabolic alterations that the body makes under specific conditions with specific nutrients. Those nutrient-use particulars are what DRIVE the weight-maintenance challenges that our culture faces, but they do so in ways that are not always intuitive. On the other side of the dipole, physical activity is not merely a weight loss tactic. It is a crucial output that many physiological processes anticipate, including basic metabolic and mental processes. Exercise is inefficient as strictly a weight loss tactic but it is highly efficient at supporting and maintaining the basic health of metabolic and cognitive processes. In the end, the false dichotomy between diet or exercise— each positioned as merely a weight loss choice— should be abandoned.

Nutrition & Health Management
The Nourish Sleep & Nourish Portal platforms have been authored through collaboration between sleep specialists, registered dietitians, exercise physiologists, risk managers and fitness facility operators. The goal is to provide collaboration between nutrition, sleep and fitness expertise through a client assessment and education platform that serves as the gateway to integrated lifestyle management.
The TriNourish System is designed to foster collaboration between sources of expertise. This includes expertise in (1) nutrition and dietary guidance, (2) sleep and circadian rhythm optimization, and (3) corrective exercise and the responsible introduction of physical activity to a largely sedentary population. Adding TriNourish to your suite of services increases the range of fee-based consultation services that you may offer and provides a scaffolding that enables your services to participate in cross-discipline collaborative networks. The TriNourish sleep screening gateway is designed to inform and screen for priority sleep disorders and maladaptive behaviors first. If a client spends only a few minutes in the process or engages only the FREE OSA screening questionnaire, the most important information will be presented with regard to the largest impact on health and performance. When warranted, a clinical pathway is suggested through the tailored assessment process with informative resources presented immediately. But unlike free clinical screeners online, the Nourish Sleep client assessment process also evaluates beliefs and behaviors that do not rise to the level of clinical disorders, but radically impact weight management, performance and safety initiatives. Each session provides a baseline grade for users to improve by following up with a credentialed specialist or following the guidance that is presented in the assessment session. Risk indicators are flagged and sleep disorder candidates are provided information about clinical follow up pathways when warranted. TriNourish does not treat sleep disorders directly. We establish local connections so that professional sleep expertise is available through your customized platform. For individuals that are not suspected of a sleep disorder, an entire library of integrated sleep and circadian rhythm optimization resources reside on the Nourish Sleep member platform. This is particularly valuable for those interested in the links between sleep, circadian rhythm and performance.
On the Nourish Portal platform nutrition and exercise programming is contextualized and primed, instead of one size fits all approaches. Educational resources are available to clients in a self-paced format as a value added resource, however, introduction to an expanded set of fee-based services is the goal of client messaging. Nourish Portal resources emphasize the situational nature of nutritional guidance. Proactive individuals retain access to self-guided learning resources, but the learning modules do not advocate a single dietary plan because personally tailored planning, education and coaching is advocated. Our role is to foster a greater appreciation for the situation-specific nature of nutrition, on the part of both nutrition providers and their clients.
We help you build a local TriNourish node so that you are the source of nutritional expertise in the local triad. If you already have existing collaborative or professional relations with clinical sleep expertise, we will program your services and your sleep resource into our client education platform and assessment follow-up recommendations, and we will assist you with integration marketing and messaging. If you do not, we will integrate an entire sleep domain into your suite of services in a manner that contextualizes the relevance of sleep and circadian rhythm specifically for your nutritional guidance, not simply as another stand alone service resource. That is the key. The TriNourish System integrates, rather than simply aggregates a set of service choices. Moreover, our system harnesses fitness resources that understand the value of increased physical activity in the context of nutrient use and metabolic dysfunctions. Should you choose to do so, we help you gain access to the membership base of responsible fitness institutions by bringing the entire TriNourish integrated assessment and education platform into the club, with your services providing the principle nutritional expertise.
What's The User Process?
The tailoring process is accomplished (1) through your dietary planning expertise, (2) with a consistent emphasis on a more active lifestyle, and (3) by ensuring that poor sleep or misaligned circadian rhythms do not act as impediments to health management or performance progress.
Take the informative assessments
Participants will enter a member passcode provided by the host entity. The Nourish Sleep assessment gateway to the educational and optimization material ensures that even casual visitors get screened in the first few minutes of the process. Screening for common sleep disorders is a priority step for sleep optimization. Following a rapid obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) screen, two other conditional screeners are presented to assess for other sleep disorder indicators and poor beliefs and behaviors associated with sleep. Questions will arise based on previous answers to provide a tailored and informative session. Unlike free clinical screeners online, the Nourish Sleep assessment process also evaluates beliefs and behaviors that do not rise to the level of clinical disorders, but radically impact weight management, performance and safety initiatives. Each session provides a baseline grade for users to improve upon by following the guidance presented in the session and in the resource library that they have been granted access to following the session. Risk indicators are flagged and sleep disorder candidates are provided information about clinical follow up pathways when warranted. TriNourish does not provide clinical services directly.
The TriNourish Learning platform at nourishportal.com hosts the Diet & Exercise Characterization, which is a qualitative assessment of patterns, beliefs and behaviors associated with diet and exercise. The D&E does not screen for disorders or provide dietary guidance, it evaluates and presents baseline grades for problem areas that should be followed up with nutrition and/or fitness consultation. Self-directed learning resources are available on the platform, however, the goal is to contextualize the situation-dependent nature of metabolism, which does not align with one-size-fits-all "diets" or trends. This emphasis, in association with the D&E Characterization, is designed to drive members to seek expert assistance. All assessments will be custom programmed to reflect existing nutrition and health management resource options available.
Step One provides the important step of identifying negative drags on performance & health. Step Two optimizes.
Follow up and investigate further
Sleep screening in Step One identifies and addresses the largest negative drags on sleep quality, which, in turn, affect basic health and performance. Step Two seeks to not simply climb out of the hole, but achieve greater heights. This translates into feeling and performing better. Step Two is accomplished, in large part, by optimizing the synchrony between one's circadian rhythm and one's desired work and productivity schedule. Although basic information about sleep hygiene (sleep preparatory habits), exposure to light, and other 'tips' are being increasingly published, this simple information strategy has little power to effect a change in client behaviors if the lists have not been contextualized, integrated, or addressed specifically to a client's individual needs. Augmentation devices, smart apps and trackers also require contextualization in order to be more effective.
In addition to the D&E Characterization, the Nourish Portal platform provides an in depth learning module on situational nutrient use dynamics. Along with a macronutrients primer, the Fuel Use Sequential Steps (F.U.S.S.) learning series provides the context for when and how the nutrients we consume are utilized. This is a not an academic exercise. On the user side, it provides context for why one size fits all dietary and exercise approaches— whether proposed for weight loss, fitness, or body aesthetics— are radically inadequate. The F.U.S.S. learning series is available to proactive members but is primarily a training primer for integrated health & nutrition staff to understand how and why The TriNourish System requires a tailoring process for nutrition, fitness, and general wellness programing. Even the existing biases of practitioners and providers remains inadequate when it comes to understanding the necessary role of credentialed nutritionists.
We know that credentialed nutritionists, registered dietitians, and integrated wellness advocates are the real experts at client education. Our system is designed to insert links to your existing presentations, publications, management tools, or client education resources so that you may deliver your services unimpeded. We provide an additional gateway or shell to deliver those services as part of an integrated or expanded set of wellness services.
The principle goal of the F.U.S.S. module series upon the Nourish Portal platform is not so much to educate clients as it is to prime providers with expertise outside of nutrition to understand the importance of an individualized nutrition plan from a credentialed nutrition provider. The material is comprehensive so it is suitable for a proactive and educated audience, however, many healthcare professionals have not been exposed to the basic metabolic principles at play outside of their realm of expertise. Likewise, portions of the Nourish Sleep learning resources that go beyond the rapid assessment series provide an evidence-based contextual support to the basic message. The message is that traditional communication and delivery of preventative lifestyle services and clinical care each radically undervalue the actual role of sleep physiology, but they also dumb down nutrition to a simple calories in versus calories out equation that does not convey the real-world physiological challenges at play.
Proactive clients may decide to go deep into the resources on both platforms, but it is more likely that end-users will take a haphazard journey after implementation of the organized assessment-and-education structure. The most important role, therefore, is consistent communication of the very basic themes: sleep is not simply rest; nutrition is not simply weight-loss dieting; and fitness is not simply a weight-loss tactic.
The most important step is the priming step of halting reflexive notions about nutrition, exercise and sleep. This is accomplished, in part, by constant client communications and driving users to your customized platforms to engage the assessment process. Consistent communication and messaging about the importance of the integrated triad of sleep, activity and nutrition IS the first step for the real delivery of expanded lifestyle management services.
