March 12th is National Registered Dietitian day! In honor of all my amazing dietitian colleagues, here are my top 3 reasons we will help save your health (and your life):
- Weight management: Working one-on-one with a registered dietitian allows you to receive expert knowledge regarding the most current science-based nutrition information. You will receive a personalized nutrition plan that works with your lifestyle. It’s about habit change! You will not get a “quick fix” diet to try and lose weight quickly. You will get a plan that you can make your own. A plan that leads to long term lifestyle changes and habit changes that helps you lose weight, maintain a healthy weight and feel better about yourself. You will become healthier as most people experience lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol levels, normalizing blood sugar levels and less cravings as a side effect of weight loss and adopting healthier eating habits. These positive side effects can be life saving!
- Nutrition Education: Ever feel like your swimming in a sea of confusion at the grocery store? “Low-fat! Reduced Sodium! Sugar-Free!” Food marketers are very good at their job. They lure us in with their seemingly healthy claims to packaged foods. Registered dietitians clear up this confusion. We teach you how to correctly read the nutrition label, ingredients list and determine if these health claims are true or false. This education provides you with the knowledge and tools to make healthier choices and thus prevent chronic disease like diabetes, hypertension and heart disease.
- Foodservice: Many registered dietitians work in foodservice at hospitals, schools or corporate wellness clinics. We make sure these institutions are following sanitary food preparation procedures as well as ensure the quality of the food served. This can help with patient recovery in the hospital, provide students with healthy food options in schools and can improve wellness in the corporate setting. Healthy food choices = healthier people.
