Why a Dietitian?

“Registered dietitian nutritionists — RDNs — are the food and nutrition experts who can translate the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living. RDNs use their nutrition expertise to help individuals make unique, positive lifestyle changes. They work throughout the community in hospitals, schools, public health clinics, nursing homes, fitness centers, food management, food industry, universities, research and private practice. RDNs are advocates for advancing the nutritional status of Americans and people around the world.”

Nutrition is different for every person. However, we are constantly being told the same nutrition advice and expect this advice to work the same for everyone…

Count calories, low carbohydrate, high or low fat, high protein, high fiber, etc.

The list could keep going on and puzzles pieces could still be missing, but it could also stop. As a dietitian, I know nutrition requires an individualized approach. It also needs another vital component: Accountability.

Accountability is key to changing any type of behavior, so why should it be any different when it comes to your nutrition goals? My goal, as a dietitian, is to be the missing puzzle piece; to guide, coach and educate you in a direction to make positive nutritional changes for the rest of your life.
