Overview of 360° Nutrition Innovations

GPHI’s multi-step 360° Nutrition Innovations is a multi-cultural interactive Web-based learning process designed to improve long-term health, and quality of life, through incorporating good nutrition into your lifestyle. Its evidence-based scientific approach covers nutrition recommendations from preconception nutrition (prior to pregnancy) through elder years. Topics cover a wide range including weight management, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, food allergies (gluten, peanut, etc.), positive and negative effects of herbal and dietary supplements, adverse health effects of plastics and food dyes/additives; and dietary factors impacting cancers and infectious diseases.

360° Nutrition Innovations personal nutrition profile begins with an individualized assessment of what you eat during three 24-hour food periods. Your eating preferences and patterns are used to suggest appropriate alternative foods and eating behavior modifications that will improve your diet and overall health. These gradual modifications in food intake use the ‘Stages of Change’ behavior model. Your personal health history and body image and shape are included in the assessment to analyze the impact on long-term chronic diseases.

All assessment information collected is examined and analyzed by GPHI's nutritional epidemiologist, Dr. Sharon Marie Lund, and shared through your personal profile created on your private, individual, password protected GPHI account. To assure confidentiality, no name or other personally identifiable information is gathered.

360° Nutrition Innovation’s unique approach allows you to choose only one personal nutrition profile assessment or multiple assessments over time (i.e., week to week, month to month, year to year). The assessments provide feedback to help you understand the impact of your food and nutrition choices and ‘trend’ how they impact the quality of your health over time.
