When should I consult a nutritionist?

John Preston, PsyD
Psychology
You may want to consult a nutritionist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) website, or a dietitian or other healthcare provider if you find that your eating habits have made you overweight or underweight, or you have illnesses such as hypertension, high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes, or other diet-related conditions. Any of the latter conditions should motivate you even more to take control of what you put into your mouth. Use the nutrition guidelines provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food and Nutrition Information Center.
