Registered dietitians (R.D.s) are acknowledged professionals uniquely trained to advise you on diet, food, and nutrition. They can separate fact from fiction and healthy eating plans from unsafe diets, and translate the science of nutrition into healthy food choices. They can help you become more aware of your eating behaviors, and they can help you to understand where the extra calories have come from that have resulted in your weight gain.
Dietitians are experts on providing practical information about how to change your individual diet into a healthier lifestyle. Dietitians give client-centered care, so whether you don&apost know where to begin or are well versed in nutrition and just need a hand, they are able to assess your needs and get you on the road to manageable weight loss and improved health and wellness. To find a registered dietician in your area go to the websites of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics or Dietitians of Canada.
